Base jump for twoTwin Falls, USA

Who says you need to be a professional parachutist to dabble in an extreme sport outlawed in many jurisdictions? In Twin Falls, Idaho, Tandem Base lets you fling yourself off the 150-metre Perrine Bridge, the Snake River sliding by below, while strapped to a trained accomplice. (Did someone say murder–suicide?) This is one heart-stopping rush and a unique opportunity to experience skydiving sans aeroplane, without the risk of being arrested.

On its website Tandem Base warns that the activity is “not safe but... can be performed safely”. If you are thinking of chickening out, know this: a 102-year-old granny took the plunge on her birthday.


Jumps cost US$399.
