In Chicago, Illinois you can get quite a unique view of the city that you won’t find anywhere else.

The Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge was built in Zhangjiajie, Hunan to increase China’s tourist revenue. It’s innovative being the highest up and longest glass bridge in the world.
People come from far and wide to walk on the bridge. There are many that lie-down and look through the glass. but if you have vertigo we’d advise against that. The glass is very thick and is very structurally sound.
On top of Macau Tower in Macau, China, you can jump off of the tallest commercial bungee jumping spot in the world. The jump is higher than 750ft and is not for the faint of heart.
The building acts as an entertainment centre and has more than just the bungee jumping if you have vertigo. There are many adventurous activities to be had.
Sometimes just feel that you want to walk on a cloud? Even though that’s impossible we have something that’s pretty close. The CN Tower has you covered.
Located in Canada the tower is the second tallest building in the world. People from all around the world seeking a bit of a thrill can walk out on a platform without any rails, just a short bungee cable keeping them from a nasty fall.
Every corner of the world has a unique experience for thrill-seekers and Australia is no different. Located in Darwin tourists and locals alike can experience something quite unique.

This thrilling ride in Nevis slings people high above the mountains speeding up to 60 miles an hour in just 1.5 seconds.
Danish engineers love a challenge. They are busy constructing the world’s longest sub-sea tunnel at 18 km long (11 miles).
The tunnel will connect the island of Fehmarn with the island of Lolland. Connecting Danish and German cities. This will mean that people will no longer have to ferry across the islands. This also means that people with claustrophobia may want to avoid the dark tunnel that will have nothing lights keeping the path lit up.
Located in China. The Wansheng Ordovician Theme Park has lots of suspension bridges between the different attractions. There aren’t any safety nets but rather just a safety harness keeping the thrill-seekers from the long drop below.
The bridge you see has planks that get further apart as you progress across the bridge. Many people have gone across the bridge fearlessly, while others have slowly crawled across it on all fours. We know that we’d give this one a skip.
Traveling in the North Caucasus shouldn’t be for the faint of heart. Not only are the drops off of the cliffs quite sheer but there are also political tensions in the area.
The region is even dangerous to mountain climbers where the craggy and unstable cliffs can mean that one mistake could cost them their lives.
In the Great Barrier Reef, some divers found a small hole in the seafloor and decided to explore it. They thought they’d seen crayfish and went straight in. Little did they know that the holes led to underwater caves that were interconnected to other holes in the sea floor and beach.
The divers documented the entire event and proved that the Great Barrier Reef has many more hidden secrets that we haven’t seen. But if you’re claustrophobic, we wouldn’t recommend diving here.
