Extreme tourism Definition

StarJo Post 7 @shell4life – I m like you. I want to relax and not put myself in danger during my time away from it all. My dad always drags me along on his skiing trips, and I stick to the bunny slopes. Does anyone know if traveling to go skiing or snowboarding could be considered extreme tourism? Personally, it qualifies for me. People come all the way from across the country to snowy slopes, just to risk their lives while speeding down them.

Extreme tourism in Florida

A certain kind of delight resides in anticipated terror. When you’re about to plunge out of an airplane from two miles high, fly a contraption fashioned from Dacron and aluminum, or race a redneck’s dream vehicle, your mouth gets dry, your palms sweat, and standing still becomes arduous. Your heart beats faster, and every sense is heightened. Then there’s the adventure itself, when you breach the line from ordinary into extraordinary, living an experience that most only dream about. The afterglow is just as sweet, a feeling of power, of conquest…

Each roller coaster offered breathtaking views, heart pumping adventures, and unique thrills. Highlights of the day: Drop Tower, Intimidator, Vortex, and Carolina…
