Five first date ideas for daredevils

by Elisa Parry

A good dose of adrenaline can go along way on a first date. Those who watch The Bachelor will know that the art of seduction usually involves abseiling, skydiving or at the very least a helicopter flight. It’s time to take your dating game to the next level. We’re talking about those extreme, heart-racing, once-in-a-lifetime activities you’ll remember forever.

Diving with sharks

So, a snorkel and a wetsuit may not be the most flattering first date attrite – but chances are you’ll be quite distracted by the sharks in the tank with you! This is a great experience for animal lovers and adrenaline junkies alike. Get up close and personal with these majestic creatures in an aquarium, or for those looking for a real thrill – in the wild!

Skydiving

Why not take a leap of faith together? Okay, so if we’re being realistic – this might be a bit much for the very first date – you might want to at least find out if they are afraid of heights first. But if you’re both thrill-seekers, this is an experience you’re guaranteed to love.

V8 Racing

Ever been behind the wheel of a supercar? Let your inner-revhead shine! A couple of laps around the track and you’ll both be pros in no time. If you’re looking for the thrill without the responsibility – you can always try a hot lap and leave it to the professionals to show you how it’s really done.

Jet Boating

360-degree spins, power-slides and wave jumps – you’re going to want to hold on tight, this will be the ride of your life! A jet boat ride is a perfect balance between adrenaline-fuelled and good old-fashioned fun. Oh, and you’ll want to wear something waterproof for this one!

Abseiling experiences

Whether you’re scaling buildings or launching into a canyon – abseiling is the kind of adventure that really gets the heart pumping. Just remember to take in the scenery on the way down!
