5 Adrenaline Activities for Thrill Seekers to Try in Florida

Coming down to the sunshine state? There are more exciting activities to do rather than sitting on the beach and soaking up that delightful sunshine—it’s time to try some other outdoor adventures! Excitement awaits each turn you take—check out a few of our favorite blood-pumping adrenaline activities for thrill seekers.

5 Extreme Activities for Thrill Seekers


1.      Ziplining

Whether you decide to zip line over rivers or over nature preserves, either way, you’ll get your heart racing and see some impressive sights. There are plenty of different places to go ziplining in Florida. Some of our favorites include Empower Adventures and Screamin’ Gator Zipline. No matter what location you choose, you’re sure to have a high-flying good time!

2.      Kiteboarding

Forget surfing! Kiteboarding is a fun and exhilarating way to ride the waves—using a kite you’ll sail across the water mixing together sports like surfing, wakeboarding, and windsurfing. Do not underestimate the power of a kite; you’ll find yourself catching more waves than a surfer could and you’ll get the rush of flying through the waves, too. Kiteboarding Florida has a ton of different spots you can check out and get to Kiting!

3.      Skydiving

A go-to for most adrenaline junkies, skydiving offers heart racing falls and breathless landings. Jumping out of a plane is something not many people do, but those that jump rave about the experience. If you’re looking for some cheek-rippling adrenaline, free-fall out of a perfectly good plane. There are plenty of places for you to go to in Florida, such as Florida Skydiving Center and Skydive City.

4.      Water Jetpacking

This extreme water sport is something anyone in the family can do. It takes a bit of practice and more than a few face plants in the water, but the result is a superhuman experience! You’re going to feel like you’re on a rollercoaster in space—weightlessness, suspended height, and freedom of height will have you beaming and giggling like a child.

5.      Skysurfing

Looking to take in the scenic views of Florida but want an exhilarating ride as well? Skysurfing may be the thing for you. You’ll take off in a Weight-Shift-Control aircraft—a highly regarded and a certified Light-Sport Aircraft. The purpose of the hang glider wing’s design is to land without power; you’ll be zooming around the skies and taking in some of the most exquisite views Florida has to offer. Sky Surfing Aviation will take you on the adventure of a lifetime.
