Top 5 Dangerous Extreme Sports
Are you an adrenaline junkie? If so, you will want to check out these top 5 dangerous extreme sports:
5) Running of the Bulls
In Pamplona, Spain, it is every person for themselves as ruthless bulls chase them. Yes, it is a sport that is famous in Spain but it is also highly dangerous. Imagine being chased at about 30 miles an hour by a bull. Runners are given places to exit alongside their route but may not be thinking clearly enough to use them when being chased at such a fast speed!
4) Cave Diving
If you want to challenge your fears of small, closed-in spaces, here is your opportunity. When you go cave diving at the Blue Hole in Belize, for example, you travel deep underwater to swim through a cave with a diameter of only 1,000 feet. True, it is a beautiful limestone cave, but it’s challenging to say the least!
3) White Water Rafting
Continuing with the water theme, head out for white water rafting, if you dare! The rapids are relentless. There are big rocks and strong waves that are very hazardous to navigate. If you crave dangerous extreme sports, then check out the Deschutes River in Oregon. If your raft gets damaged though, we’re not accountable for any damages.
2) Free Solo Climbing
Free solo climbing, sometimes called free soloing, is where you climb rocks without a harness or any other safety gear. For this dangerous extreme sport, favorite places include Mount Watkins, Half Dome and El Capitan, which is a tall cliff located in Yosemite National Park. Make sure your grip is strong as you climb and coat magnesium over your hands to keep from slipping and falling to the bottom. You’re taking your life into your hands, literally!
1) BASE Jumping
BASE jumping has been called a kind of suicide sport. Imagine parachuting from a cliff or other fixed object with a much higher risk factor than skydiving. You risk your life every time you jump off of a building, cliff, antenna or bridge. There’s a reason many of the objects BASE jumpers use are illegal platforms for this use – yes, you could die. Popular yet highly dangerous bridges include the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia; it is 856 feet above the water.
