Today, many people want more from their holiday or day out than simply relaxing on a beach or hiking through beautiful countryside. People have become much more interested in extreme activities that were once the preserve of just a few. Everyone can enjoy sports such as white water rafting, including families. With proper professional organization, such activities can be exciting without being unduly dangerous.
Depending on your budget, there are many different activities. Visitors to parts of the US can experience what it is like to go into space. By making quick ascents and descents, passengers can experience weightlessness. There are many parts of the world where it is possible to sky jump from tall buildings. The Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas is the tallest observation tower in the world. At 25 meters, a sky jump from the top is certainly something to write home about and is definitely not for the faint-hearted. SCAD diving is the only sport that allows individuals to experience free-falling from a height. Those taking part are hoisted 45 meters above the ground by a crane and then dropped into a safety net.
Of course, adrenaline days out do not have to involve extreme sports. Sporting events such as the Rugby World Cup, the FA Cup Final, and the Grand National are major sporting events that will get the adrenaline going. You can, of course, watch these events at home or at your local pub, but nothing compares with actually being at the venue.
The Grand National is one of the most famous horse races in the world and is watched by 600 million people worldwide. The course is one of the toughest in the world and covers four miles, two furlongs and 74 yards, with some of the most challenging fences of any steeplechase course. On race day, there are plenty of activities as well as a full racing card. Live music and entertainment are available, and there are plenty of places to drink and eat, or you can take a picnic. With so much going on as well as the racing, it makes a great day out for the family. If you fancy a bet on the race, there are plenty of Grand National tips.
Another sporting event that will appeal to families is the iconic Petit Le Mans race in Atlanta. Marking the end of the United Sports Car Championship, it features adrenaline-fueled racing and an opportunity to view the cars and drivers close up. A Pit Tour gives a fascinating insight into the work of the crew who service the cars.
If you visit Atlanta during the springtime, then a visit to the Atlanta Braves is a great day out for the family. The Atlanta Braves have a huge following not only in Atlanta but also across the US. Games are played at Turner Field, which has fantastic views of Downtown Atlanta’s skyline. You can also tour Turner Field, visiting the press booth, luxury suites and dugout, as well as the Braves Museum and Hall of Fame.
There are plenty of family activities no matter where you are, and sporting events are some of the most enjoyable adrenaline-fueled days out for all the family.
