Most people that travel to Chicago do not think about extreme activities but if you are among those that want to feel adrenaline going through their veins, the city of Chicago does offer some pretty interesting options that you can take advantage of. While it is hard to choose since people tend to want different things, we will mention 3 activities that you absolutely need to try if you visit the city.
Extreme Tandem Skydiving
You can expect to experience am 18,000 free fall together with an experienced and licensed instructor. There is a learning period when you are taught everything that you have to remember and after that, you are taken in the air and prepared for the jump.
There are so many that have skydiving on their bucket list. Why not take advantage of a great opportunity in Chicago? The free fall tends to last 1 to 2 minutes based on the altitude that you choose. In the event that you never went skydiving before, you may want to first try the 9,000 feet jump. Those that jump need to be under 240 pounds and older than 18. If you want to, you can buy a multimedia and video package that will document every step of your skydiving experience in Chicago.
While not actually a really extreme activity, it is definitely one that will put your body to the test as you compete with your friends in order to score points and win as a team. The Chicago lasertag experience is definitely interesting, one of the best in the country. You just need to have at least 3 friends with you and you can have so much fun.
You can choose out of various battle formats and if you want to visit with many friends, make sure that you book in advance since there will be some limitations in available space. This is actually a really popular activity in Chicago so reservations are always necessary.
Fox River Jet Skiing
This is available both during weekends and during weekdays but we do recommend the weekday experience since it is cheaper and there are more chances that you will actually be able to find some free space available for you. The entire experience is memorable and the scenery is actually a lot better than what you would imagine. In the event that you never rode a jet ski, do not be worried! The professionals here will teach you absolutely everything that you need to know. We recommend Chicago VIP Parties for the jet skiing experience on Fox River due to the professionalism that they showed in the past. One ride will cost $180 but you can ride alone or with another person. A jet ski can accommodate 2 people.
