If you want to stay away from the mainstream ‘adventure’ holidays, there are super cool places that you can visit instead. There are plenty of destinations ideal for those of you who want to have a unique, unforgettable experience in an awesome country.
No one can defy gravity right? Wrong! The genius architects who designed the sky scraper Capital Gate in Abu Dhabi have done that by creating a 520 foot, 35 stories building with an insane 18 degree tilt. The “Leaning tower of Abu Dhabi” has entered the Guinness records as the “World’s furthest leaning man-made tower”. All you engineer lovers will find this simply unbelievably awesome.
You may think roller coaster rides are not the perfect ingredients of an adventure. But how about if you are jettisoned from 0 to 60 mph and then corkscrewed up 100 feet and then being dropped on a figure 8 element and weaved through series of helixes and finally dropping into a 130 feet trench? And that’s only the first part. That’s the heart pumping Cheetah Hunt Roller Coaster ride in Busch Gardens Tampa Florida- a uniquely cool and undoubtedly adventurous destination.
Alice must have enjoyed her adventure in wonderland and you too can get a little taste of what that might have felt like-though it may sound weird. The Metropol Parasol in Seville Spain is a wooden structure with dimensions 490 by 230 ft and height of 85 feet. It consists of six parasols that look like ‘giant mushrooms’ and it has four levels. Each level has a new adventure to offer such as a little bit of archaeology, socializing area and terraces. It is something that you have to experience in order to understand it.
Scuba diving takes you to the flora and fauna of the Ocean but how about a little change of scenery? The Cancun’s Underwater Museum in Mexico is the largest underwater museum in the world. A series of around 400 life size sculptures by Jason de Caires Taylor have become home to a myriad of corals and other aquatic species. There’s a cool addition to your boring scuba diving itinerary.
The Harp concert hall in Iceland is sure to give you a unique experience. The hall is surrounded by a framework of irregularly shaped class that forms a kaleidoscopic view. Designed by Olafur Eliasson, it is now venue to performances of some of the big names in the music industry.
