11 ADVENTUROUS DATE IDEAS
June 22, 2019
If you love nothing more than scaring yourself silly and you've found another adrenalin junkie to share in your passion, then you can’t go wrong with one of these dangerous and death defying first date ideas.
1. ARIAL AMOUR
Why not treat your date to a trapeze lesson? You can find circus schools all over the country where you can book a single session or take an entire course to learn all those essential life skills like juggling, walking on stilts and swinging on a trapeze. Flying through the air and flipping off a bit of string to be caught by your partner is an incredible bonding experience that neither of you will forget in a hurry – and if you get fed up of your present employment you can come up with a cabaret act and tour the world instead.
2. DIVING WITH SHARKS
Think great white and adrenaline and bring it on. The coast of South Africa is full of companies
like Shark Cage Diving KZN
that can accommodate your thrill seeking sense of adventure. Get more adventurous date ideas below.
3. FOUR WHEEL FLING
Petrol heads won’t want to miss a four wheel drive experience. You can take turns racing over rugged terrains in a monster 4×4. To make the experience even more thrilling try out blind driving, where the driver wears a blindfold and the passenger navigates around an obstacle course. Driving with a blindfold on is absolutely terrifying but totally incredible and once you’ve tried it out, you’ll never argue over directions on the highway again.
4. BRIDGE SWINGING
Bridge swinging is the new bungee jumping and if you've already tried out bungee, then you’ll adore bridge swinging too. As the name suggests you jump off a bridge on a rope and then swing beneath it like a human pendulum. If you live in the garden route you can visit Face Adrenalin at the Bloukrans bridge
and if you do not live close you can book a flight as the garden route also happens to be a lovely place to spend a romantic break.
Love may be a load of balls but adrenaline is forever! Zorbing is one of the most exhilarating and hilarious adrenaline activities you can try and anyone can do it without having to spend ages training or learning. You simply get yourself inside a giant plastic inflatable ball and roll down a hill. This is a slightly more sedate date for those who love thrills but don’t want to run the risk of ending up in casualty and once you've given it a go, you’ll want to try it again and again, just make sure you leave lunch till afterwards!
