The Grand Canyon
This popular Arizona tourist spot has attracted countless people across the world and cost over 685 deaths over the year. On average, two or three deaths happen here simply from people falling over the rim. People have also died from the heat, exhaustion, dehydration, animal attacks, and of course suicide. We might just stay at the office and play Scrabble, then.
Darryn Webb came up with this tourist attraction where people can slide down an active volcano called Cerro Negro in Nicaragua using a piece of wood rather than a sled for $28. Here's the thing, the volcano is still active. So you could literally find yourself sliding for your life!
Alnwick Gardens, UK
Among the various plant life and interesting fountains is a garden full of poisonous plants which were added in 2005. Among the species are nux vomica which is used to create strychnine and ricinus communis, which contains the deadly ricin. Although tourists are kept within a safe distance, some of the plants have released toxic fumes that have caused people to faint.
