Home of the Brave? Here Are 5 Places to Get Your Adrenaline Fix in Singapore
After doing the 9-5 of your usual workweek, nothing beats doing something out-of-the-box to make your weekends worth the wait and get you pumped up to encounter the busy week ahead. A massive surge of adrenaline is just what you need, and there are loads of activities that will give you your dose in Singapore.
Bungee jumping? Check. Extreme swing ride? Check. Indoor skydive, zip-lining, surfing, competitive mixed martial arts? We got you covered. Here’s where to get your adrenalin high without having to get out of the city.
1. Go bungee jumping at Skypark Sentosa by AJ Hackett
If your nerves can handle jumping from 47 metres high, then the Bungy Jump at Skypark Sentosa by AJ Hackett is just the thing for you. Safety is something you can count on since you’ll be under the careful tutelage of the AJ Hackett crew before you can take on your numerous jumping options.
While you’re there at Siloso Beach, check out the other AJ Hackett attractions like the Skybridge, Vertical Skywalk, Sunset Deck, and Giant Swing.
2. Get thrown in the air and scream at GX-5 Extreme Swing
Only the bravest of daredevils can stomach riding a steel-reinforced capsule and being hurled from 50 metres and at speeds of up to 120-200 kilometres per hour. Yes, it sounds crazy, yet the G-MAX Reverse Bungy ride continues to draw in adventure-seekers in Singapore. If you’re in Clarke Quay and hear screaming from somewhere, it’s most likely a G-MAX rider trying not to blow their guts out.
3. Skydive indoors at iFly
If you want to experience how it feels to fly untethered up in the air but don’t have the guts to do it for real? Get a taste of skydiving high at iFly, where their indoor free-fall somehow simulates the thrill of the real thing.
You get to “skydive” inside a tunnel powered with wall-to-wall airflow. Instructors will teach you the proper posture for skydiving, which is instrumental for a higher soar height.
4. Zip the line at Mega Adventure
Among Sentosa’s myriad of adventures is the MegaZip, a 75-metre high zip line that gives you the most glorious views of the island as you glide along the hanging rope. You get to fly at 60 kilometres per hour over the jungles and beaches of Sentosa.
Kids are allowed to zip as long as they are under 30 kilograms and in tandem with an adult. You don’t have to worry about someone taking pictures of you as you zip because there are photographers onsite who can do it for you.
5. Learn the best of mixed martial arts at Evolve MMA
There’s nothing like throwing kicks and punches to release the stress in one’s body. If you must get physical, let the best in Singapore handle your training. Evolve MMA, known as Asia’s premier championship brand for martial arts, offers sessions for boxing, Muay Thai, kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, and wrestling for both beginners and advanced fighters.
Evolve MMA trains world champions, so rest assured that you will get nothing less than world-class training.
