If you have been living a life of simple pleasures, without challenging your limits, am afraid you are not utilising it to the optimum! Comfort is fine, surviving is fine too… But once in a while our souls need that out of body experience, a moment that completely shakes our existence and if you are up for some… you need to try your hand on atleast one of the ‘thrills’ listed below!
These thrill seeking adventures will shake you out of your comfort zone and nudge you to try something out of ordinary.
My favourite from the list you ask? The skydive Dubai experience! Grand, stimulating and one of the best thrilling things to do before you die, I say!

Ride The Takabisha in Japan
I’m sure everyone has had that nightmare, where you see yourself free falling from a height and you wake up with a ‘thud’. Time to relieve the same experience albeit with ‘open eyes’.

That short!) of electrifying rollercoaster ride at the Fuji-Q Highland theme park, Japan, where the occupants of Takabisha (the roller coaster) are plummeted 141ft in a single vertical drop. Did I miss out on telling you that the speed of the roller coaster is ONLY ‘100 kmph’!!!
