Hang gliding and bungee jumping
You’ve heard of bungee jumping and hang gliding but have you heard of the slingshot? It’s the exact opposite of bungee jumping, you’re attached to a long cord and thrown up into the air. Sounds fun, right? Or you could just stick with traditional bungee jumping and hang gliding in Brazil.
Is hang gliding off mountains a step too far for you? Maybe you should step it down a notch and try something just as fun but on ground level. In New Zealand you can roll down hills in ginormous inflatable balls. There are three types of ride you can do, Zorbit – without water, Zydro – with water and Zurf – with water and a body board. Take your pick and enjoy the thrill.
