We spend our whole lives craving adventures but sometimes, we run out of ideas. So if you want to experience a ride that will destroy your routine and get your adrenaline pumping then you need to try one of these 6 breathtaking adventures. You'll never be the same again.
Survival Of The Fittest
Do you ever wonder if you have the skills to survive in the wild? Well, BOSS (aka Boulder Outdoor Survival School) in Boulder, Utah offers to train you in the ways of some ancient and traditional survival skills. You'll be put through an intense 27-day challenge with up to 11 students. You'll hike 15 to 30 miles a day with nothing more than a blanket, a poncho, water bottle and a knife. You'll be taught how to build shelter, purify water, build a fire, kill a sheep and store the meat, and determine which plants are edible or have medicinal benefits.
One Tough Mudder
This intense obstacle course was designed by the British Special Forces to challenge a persons' strength, endurance, stamina and teamwork. Your physical, mental and emotional strength are all tested on this 12-mile course. You'll have to swim through icy water, crawl under barbed wires, run through wires charged with 10k volts of electricity and climb, drag heavy things and jog your way to the finish line. It is the ultimate boot camp and you'll challenge yourself in ways you never imagined possible.
Covert Ops Miami
If you've ever wanted to learn about counter-terrorism (because you watched too much 24) then this adventure held in Miami, FL is perfect for you. You can choose from a 2-day or 4-day training which involves weapons training and learning how to use an Israeli form of Martial Arts called Krav Maga to disable your enemy. You'll learn how to identify an ambush and shoot from a moving vehicle. You'll also learn combat first aid, vehicle take-downs, military gas training and so much more.
The Indiana based paintball event offers 11 outdoor obstacle courses that simulate towns, towers, forts, the woods and includes vehicles as well. There's even an indoor area too. Players will have access to tanks, grenades and rocket launchers with paintball capabilities too. It's all in an effort to give you that military or law enforcement training of surviving an all-out shootout and will definitely make your heart race.
Come to Telluride, CO and challenge your skiing skills in the San Juan Mountains. A Bell 407 helicopter will drop you off in the vicinity of the 200 square acres of challenging terrains. You can ski from an elevation of 10,000 to 13,500 feet and ski down a 1,000 to 3,000 ft drop. This is perfect for advanced snowboarders looking for some wild vertical skiing. You can choose from 2 to 5 days of intense heli-skiing and it's totally worth it.
Air Combat USA
Spend some time learning about the S1A1 Marchetti SF260 aircraft, including the jaw dropping tactical maneuvers it's capable of. Then you strap on a flight suit, put on your helmet and parachute (just in case) and climb onboard the Italian plane, preparing yourself for the ride of your life. You'll have an instructor sitting right next to you. Then the dogfight begins and you engage an opponent in a simulated battle in the sky. Once you land you'll get a souvenir in the form of video footage of your adventure to show your friends.
