10 perfect gifts for adrenaline junkies
How do you know when you’ve found a great gift for adrenaline junkies? You have to sign a waiver. If your heart’s not pumping, hands aren’t clammy, and eyes aren’t wide open — you may as well have stayed home baking a pavlova with your Nan. Because not everyone is born with ice and adrenaline running through their veins.
Adrenaline junkies were born to dive with Great Whites, race around a go kart track at breakneck speed, and jump from planes (with a parachute). So keep reading to find the perfect gift for thrill seekers. If thinking about it makes you excited, imagine actually doing it.
Can you handle the fastest thrill? Go karting at Ace Karts is the perfect gift for adrenaline junkies. 3… 2… 1… Go and grab a gift card.
1. Go karting
Daredevils… start your engines. With an outdoor track and finely tuned karts that can hit 75km/h on the straight, the Ace Karts go karting experience is as close as you can get to the Formula 1 —without a fireproof suit.
Undoubtedly, go karting is the #1 ranked gift for adrenaline junkies. Get your fix at Ace Karts. And discover who’s the most daring driver.
Paintball is like chess with guns. So if you’re after gift ideas for thrill seekers, set your sights on the 7 acres of pro-level playing fields at the Snipers Den. Get ready to tag ‘em and bag ‘em baby—we’re going to play paintball.
Anyone can fly in a plane, but it takes a special kind of fool to jump out of one. That’s what the world thought, until Felix Baumgartner took a helium balloon 39 kilometres into space and then jumped out. Fool? Maybe. Legend? Undoubtedly.
Jumping out of a plane? In comparison, skydiving looks sensible, like an afternoon stroll. Sure, this 4 kilometre journey back to earth won’t put anyone into the record books, but it’ll absolutely certify you as a death-defying legend.
If not now, then when? Life begins in 3… 2… 1… Jump.
4. Indoor skydiving
If at first you don’t succeed, never ever go skydiving. That sport is not for you—keep your seat belt on and tray table in an upright position.
So what gifts for adrenaline junkies can you buy instead? Check out skydiving’s safer cousin—indoor skydiving. It’s all the thrill of a four-kilometre free fall, but with a safer landing.
Tony Stark would be jealous of this gift for adrenaline junkies. It’s a high-tech toy for thrill seekers. The flyboard uses water jets to power you through the water and the air.
So take to the air, then to the water, and then back to the air with a heart-pumping flyboarding experience.
6. Bungee rope
Butterflies in your tummy? Excellent. If it scares you, you should do it. You can stretch the limits of your courage as you stretch out the long elastic bungee rope.
What’s it feel like? There’s only one way to find out. To those who have jumped, no explanation is necessary. To those who never jump, no explanation is possible. So take the leap.
7. Tough Mudder
Rising up to the challenge of Tough Mudder — you’ll feel like Rocky at the end of fifteen rounds — exhausted, hurting, and elated.
If you want to test your parachute, go skydiving. But if you want to test your will, this is the adrenaline gift for you — the 16km mud obstacle course that is one Tough Mudder.
It feels good to be lost in the right direction. In this case, the right direction is wherever this huge ball is rolling.
For those new to the wild world of zorbing, it’s where you are strapped inside a huge ball and then pushed down a hill. Sound fun? If so, you’re definitely an adrenaline junkie and you’re going to love the zorbing experience.
9. Shark Diving
Unfortunately, in Australia you can’t wrestle a bear, abseil into a volcano, or play tag with a hippo. But we’ve got plenty of sharks. We have Great White Sharks and hungry hungry Tiger Sharks.
So grab your lucky speedos and go swimming with sharks. And for an extra rush of adrenaline, be sure to watch Jaws the night before.
10. Jet fighter flights
Aviators? Check. Emotionless-cool-guy Tom Cruise stare? Check. Second pair of underwear? Check. You’re ready for a jet fighter flight.
With barrel rolls, loop the loop, and the infamous Cuban 8, you’ll learn that when shopping for gifts for adrenaline junkies, direction is more important than speed.
For the ultimate in raw speed and tight turns, the perfect gift for adrenaline junkies is the Ace Karts go karting gift card.
