There are some people who are constantly on the search for thrilling adventures. They crave activities which give them a sudden rush of thrill and excitement. If this description fits you, then it is likely that you are an adrenaline junkie!
There is a common misconception that these thrill seekers need to travel overseas to satisfy their thirst for the extreme. However, this is not true as our own country has plenty of spots for this group of people.
Here are 7 adventure activities in Malaysia that adrenaline junkies will absolutely love. So, let’s dive in!
1. “Today, you’ll be swimming with the sharks”
Back in the 70s and 80s, many people had genuine fears of entering the ocean, largely owing to Steven Spielberg’s classic flick ‘Jaws’. But staring fear in the face is something that adrenaline junkies crave for on a daily basis.
With that in mind, shark diving should be the activity to thrill them the most.
For certified divers, Aquaria KLCC offers the perfect opportunity to do so. Take a plunge in their 2.5 million litre oceanarium tank and get up-close with five different species of sharks and other marvellous creatures of the deep.
Those who have experienced skydiving describe it as the most empowering thing they’ve done in their life. So are you prepared to make the jump and go through an adrenaline rush like no other?
With over 30 years of experience, Hawk Skydive is the largest operating skydiving school in Malaysia. They offer services for beginners, advanced, skydive photography, and many more.
3. Flyboard like an action star
At a glance, flyboarding seems like something you would see in a superhero or high-octane action movie. It is similar to water skiing, but here you have a water jetpack system that allows you to glide through the air!
If you are interested to try it out, check out Flyboard Malaysia, which is located in Putrajaya Maritime Centre. You will need to be at least 15 years old and weigh between 38kg to 120kg to participate. You’ll also need to book your slot at least four to seven days earlier.
4. Get drenched!
White Water Rafting Kuala Kubu Bharu offers you the opportunity raft through the invigorating river forest of Sungai Selangor. The river stretches 7 kilometres long while the rapid ranges from Grade 2 to 4. Depending on the water level and group size, it will take about 3 to 4 hours to complete the rafting.
The package includes rafting equipment, experienced river guides, first aid kit, on-river snacks, and buffet lunch. This group activity is an adventure getaway not to be missed.
5. A vacation in the sky
Some activities such as paragliding require you to have prior training and a certain level of expertise. But sometimes we want to skip the training and just spend some time in the sky. If this is the case, then tandem paragliding should be the activity for you!
Tandem paragliding allows you to fly through the air with the help of an experienced pilot. You sit in a comfortable harness, attached to a paraglider, and the pilot will take care of everything else. This is your chance to enjoy the view and take photos. Oxbold offers tandem paragliding packages starting from RM240 per person with a minimum of two persons required upon booking.
6. In the mood for a drift?
If you are seeking a fun and exhilarating time either by yourself or in a group, then you should give drift karting a go. Simply put, this is a more extreme version of go-karting, where the emphasis is on drifting.
Located at Sungei Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur, Blastacars offers a unique indoor karting experience. The track has a unique slippery surface and the karts are carefully handmade to be tough, safe, and packed with powerful engines. The 200-metre track is built for over 10 karts to race at once.
