Common Thrill Seeking Outlets

scuba diverThere are many ways a thrill seeker can get their adrenaline fix. The only real commonality between all of them is that they are all physical activities. Apart from that trait, thrill seekers like to push they boundaries of their courage in anyway their imaginations can invent. However, there are some that are more common than others, which include:

  • Bungee jumping. This classic thrill seeking method is a favorite among adrenaline junkies. Falling from a bridge or a crane that soars up to incredible heights with only a thick elastic to preserve your mortality is the right kind of dangerous for thrill seekers the world over. Where most of us would be terrified, thrill seekers are blissful.
  • Mountain climbing. Another common thrill seeking venture for people who like more of a technical challenge is mountain climbing. These intense vertical ascents up cliff faces and boulders have particular appeal to people who did a lot of climbing as kids. Those who enjoy the thrill but still value safety will latch their climbing ropes onto a system of hooks in the rock face as they ascend. Those who’s enjoyment comes from working without a safety net will skip the ropes all together.
  • Sky diving. This daring activity is very similar to bungee jumping. There is something about free falling that attracts thrill seekers from every walk of life. For some, the bungee cord is far too short and only a jump out of an airplane with a parachute will satisfy their adrenaline cravings.
  • Cliff jumping. Some people have to work up the nerve to jump off the high diving board at the public pool. Adrenaline junkies prefer to jump off of 100-foot ridges into deep, natural pools of water. The thought ties some people’s stomachs in knots, but to a thrill seeker, there is no greater joy.
  • Scuba diving. When scuba diving involves deep water dives, cave dives or shipwreck dives, it attracts thrill seekers for the adventure aspect.
  • Swimming with sharks. The last thing on many people’s wish list, swimming with sharks is another favorite of thrill seekers.
