Top Thrills for the Adrenaline Junkie
Adrenaline junkies are high strung, thrill seeking magnets that will do anything and everything to get a rush. They are addicted to fear-inducing situations. The human brain releases adrenaline in response to extreme stress or fear. Facing that fear produces an energizing rush of endorphins, the brain’s natural high. This rush of neurotransmitters in the brain is highly satisfying, producing an effect very similar to that of many illicit drugs. The high that thrill seekers experience leads them to seek out ever greater thrills. So, if you are an adrenaline junkie, where can you get the best thrills to get your adrenaline pumping?
Adrenaline junkies almost always love extreme sports. Skydiving is probably the sport most closely associated with adrenaline junkies due to its dangerous nature. Jumping out of an airplane and plummeting towards earth, with just a parachute between you and imminent death, will give you a huge rush of adrenaline. For a few seconds, skydivers experience the feeling of flying. This death defying act has become more and more popular among thrill seekers young and old.
Another sport adrenaline junkie’s love is snowboarding, whether it’s in Continental Plaza Hotel or Comfort Suites Maingate Hotel, junkies can’t get enough of it! While snowboarding on its face may not seem too dangerous, adrenaline junkies take the sport to an entirely different level. Half-Pipe and Big Air competitions pit snowboarders against each other in an effort to pull off the most dazzling tricks and get the highest height off the ground. Combined with aerial stunts, extreme snowboarders tackle rough terrain, encountering obstacles such as ravines, cliffs, and deep snow, as they hurtle down near vertical slopes.
While extreme sports serve as a wonderful outlet for adrenaline junkies, there are many other day-to-day activities that can help them get the rush that they crave. Adrenaline junkies love to ride motorcycles. Motorcycles can be a fun and enjoyable method of transportation, but for thrill seekers they are much more than that. Motorcycles not only give riders the ultimate sense of freedom and the feel of the wind in their face, it puts them at a much greater risk than they can get from driving an automobile. In fact, it is five times as dangerous, which only adds to the lure of these “crotch rockets”. A motorcycle leaves the rider totally exposed to the road and the elements. Pulling off wheelies or other tricks on a bike can give a thrill seeker a huge rush of adrenaline.
Another common pastime of thrill seekers is amusement parks and more importantly rollercoaster’s. Hurling riders at blazing speeds along a track that features extreme drops, loops, twists and turns, a top rated rollercoaster can provide an exhilarating experience for anyone who craves speed and a sense of danger. The feeling of being used as a projectile is very satisfying and exciting for an adrenaline junkie, allowing them to get the rush they desire for a very reasonable price. Some rollercoaster aficionados travel the country in search of the biggest, fastest and most thrilling rides.
