Often when traveling, we like to try new sports, like bungee jumping, diving, golf and and other fun things like that.
Well, if you’re looking for an extra challenging place to do it, or are just a bit of a nutcase looking for some fun – you will definitely want to visit these places below…
World’s Most Dangerous Ski Run
– Corbet’s Couloir, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
How would you like to ski down a 60-degree slope?
Even better, a slope which starts off with either a 4 meter jump following a skid to avoid the rocks, or a 6 meter jump without rocks at the bottom?
Whichever of the two you choose, be prepared to be scared and avoid falling because you risk sliding the whole way to the bottom with no way of stopping.
World’s Most Dangerous Tennis Court
– Burj Al Arab, Dubai.
The worlds highest tennis court is situated 1000 feet above the ocean standing atop the fourth highest hotel in the world – Burj al Arab in Dubai.
The tennis court is circular in shape and when no session is at play, it doubles as a helipad.
The photo on the right was from when the two famous tennis players Andre Agassi and Roger Federer played earlier this year – I wonder what happened to the balls that fell off the edge?
World’s Most Dangerous Golf Course
– Camp Bonifas, South Korea.
You would think that golf isn’t a very dangerous sport, and if you go to the Scottsdale golf course or those amazing Hawaii golf courses then that is probably true, which is why this golf course might blow your mind – well, hopefully that is the only thing it will blow, but it could literally blow you in pieces.
I’m talking about the most dangerous golf course in the world – Camp Bonifas in South Korea right on the border to North Korea.
When they built the course they realized that they wouldn’t be able to fit 18 holes in the camp, so instead they decided to compensate by making it really difficult – which resulted in a 1-hole golf course surrounded by LIVE minefields on three sides.
World’s Most Dangerous Dive Spot – Blue Hole, Egypt
The Blue Hole is a submarine sinkhole (a kind of cave) at a depth of 130 meters.
It is known as the most dangerous diving spot because of the large number of deaths that have occurred from people diving in the hole.
Many inexperienced or overconfident divers sometimes have trouble finding the tunnel connecting the Blue Hole and open water and end up descending too deep…!
World’s Most Dangerous Cliff Diving Spot – Ponte Brolla, Switzerland
The Swiss seem to love every crazy adrenaline sport there is, and they have the natural resources for it – Ponte Brolla is renown as one of the most famous, extreme and dangerous cliff diving, or ”tombstoning” spots in the world.
Several World High Diving Federation championships have been hosted here, where the divers face a 26 meter (78ft) jump into ice cold water.
This sport might look like a fun and easy thing, but it’s not nicknamed ”tombstoning” for nothing…
