YOLO-ing With These Six Extreme Activities

Life is not a movie meant to passively live it. It is an adventure waiting to happen. Are you a thrill-seeker? Then you probably live by the expression YOLO – You Only Live Once. These extreme activities will surely give you the adrenaline rush that you are looking for:

Zero Gravity with “Zero-G”

Zero GIs being an astronaut one of your childhood dreams? Get the chance to live it with the “Zero-G.” It mimics the sensation of being weightless, which astronauts experience while in space. Individuals get to experience the feeling of zero gravity through the aerial stunts performed by pilots who have undergone specific training. Each stunt is in itself extreme, with one of them involving taking people to an altitude of more or less 30,000 feet.

From there, they will experience twice the normal gravity compared to being on the ground.  Numerous repetitions of the mentioned stunt give people the chance to feel like they are actually in space. Those interested may inquire about the activity at the following locations: Cape Canaveral, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, and Oakland, California.

Extreme Weather Chasing at Tornado Alley

Do you possess nerves of steel? Is the idea of stretching how far luck favors you seem to be appealing? You will then have an adrenaline rush with this next extreme activity. While most would flee quickly from extreme weather conditions (including tornadoes and storms), some brave souls take pleasure from chasing after them. Business-minded individuals have even made this into an income-generating venture. Six-day tour packages are the usual norm.  These events usually start in the city of Oklahoma. There, groups run after tornadoes and thunderstorms with the help of modern technology. Spring is the most desirable time to do this activity as it’s usually when hundreds of tornadoes are formed in the Tornado Alley.

Free-Falling from a Ginormous Swing

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then head over to the Corona Arch to test it out for yourself.
