Adventure + Adrenaline Rush = Fun Moments
This ride is one hell of an adrenaline booster! You will be seated and locked inside a metal ball before catapulted high up into the air, slicing through the sky, bouncing and spinning wildly for a few minutes. The machine fires you 60 meters’ vertical at ludicrous speeds in just over 2 seconds, reaching up to 5G force. You will feel the wildest of excitement while being hurled in the air up and down.
A few pointers you need to keep in mind is that do not take the ride on an empty stomach as it might make you nauseous. Also do not have a heavy meal since you might end throwing up. Please bear in mind that you will be tumbled up and down, and therefore either pregnant women, heart patients or those with blood pressure issues are not allowed to take this ride. This is an extreme form of adventure sport, and utmost care needs to be taken. Last but not least, make sure to scream out loud as you will be recorded in a GoPro video.
G Swing Bali, in Batu Bolong, is Canggu’s first and only extreme thrill ride! With a height of over 40 meters, G Swing claims the most stunning view over Bali’s Canggu area. G Swing can accommodate up to 5 riders per swing.
A unique feature of G Swing is that riders are responsible for launching the ride by pushing the release lever themselves! The attraction is loved by all adrenaline seekers no matter what age! Keep an eye out for the new addition to the G Swing space, Swingers Bar and Cafe!
Cliff jumping is among one of our all-time favourite activities in Bali. Cliff jumping goes from scary to exciting in a second flat and allows you to soar in the air just before you bury yourself in water. There are so many jumping spots on this island. However, we need to be wise in choosing the safest spot.
Canyoning Bali combines cliff jumping with hiking and swimming into one epic adventure. These activities, also known as canyoning, range from a fun and interesting way to embrace nature to an extreme sport. Where you fall on the spectrum of difficulty is entirely up to you. It is no secret that Wildthentic loves outdoor activities but they don’t necessarily have to be demanding or require Olympic training. You can spend the day descending rigorous gorges or discovering leisurely paths with occasional difficulties along the way. They are even compatible with younger children.
Canyoning will change your perspective and way of thinking because we are usually focused on going up or moving forward, never climbing down. Canyoning, especially cliff jumping, require psychological preparedness. These activities teach you how to be mentally aware and focused while in nature, where anything can happen. Canyoning is a full experience of the senses and engages your entire body, including the mind.
Slide-in High Speed
Recently voted as #1 Waterpark in Asia in the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards 2023, and celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, Waterbom provides the ultimate day out for adrenaline junkies in Bali.
Waterbom features 26 slides over 5.1 hectares of boutique tropical gardens. The newly opened Oasis Gardens area is home to 4 slide attractions accessed by a 20-metre winding slide tower purpose-designed with a cantilevered viewing platform, with views across to iconic Kuta beach.
The Drop is a suspenseful tube ride through the dark that starts from an impressive 17-metre height and ends in a heart-stopping 8-metre free drop (with 2 slide options). The Tailspin sends riders in a downward spiral slide into an open bowl, tilted for maximum speed, which propels them into the next open bowl before reaching the finish point. The gravity-defying Boomerang slide—a crowd favourite—has been reborn in this new area, with its translucent rainbow tube shooting riders into a 9.2-meter vertical drop before launching them directly upward into a giant wall ride, followed by a backward drop to finish. These new slides can be ridden solo or tandem for more speed and fun. Get ready to unleash your screams!
Go speed up on the smooth asphalt track, keep your feet on the pedal in long clearing turns and feel the G-drive as you attempt to the hustling line while flying around twists at top speed! Petrolheads and adrenaline junkies are very familiar with Go-Kart.
To be able to drive this 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine of a mild plastic-body kart, you must be at least 10 years old and 140 centimetres tall to race at full speed. For younger or shorter kids, ask the crew to reduce the maximum speed. Helmets are mandatory during the race and available at no charge, as well as driving gloves and jacket. For those who have never go-karted before, this can be a bit scary experience, but well-assured this will also be both fun and easy.
This powerful machine will take you to dive a few feet underwater before breach the water surface and launch the entire boat a few meters in the air. Using a supercharged engine that will put you in super speed, this hydrodynamics boat will certainly get your heart pumping, making it one of the best things to do in Bali.
You can roll on a 90-degree angle, do tight doughnut turns, and dive 5 feet or even 18 feet underwater. With top speeds of 80 km/h on water, this ride is guaranteed to make your heart skips a beat. For those who want to jump in the air while gliding over Bali’s blue waters, take your time to experience the most delightful water activity adventure and live in a unique moment full of adrenaline.
Fly high over Bali’s blue seawater and get a clear picture of the island makes parasailing is another option for adrenaline junkies. The excitement of being pulled by a speedboat to enjoy the birds-eye view of the coastal area is incredible. Having the aquamarine waters and white sandy beaches under your feet, plus the palm trees swaying in the warm tropical breeze, makes this water sport an unforgettable moment for your holiday. Worry not of your safety as the professional parasailing guide will ensure you with the high safety equipment and a short briefing before you fly off.
Contrary to what many would believe, paragliding is an activity that is suitable for everyone, from children and the elderly to people with functional diversity. If you have never flown a paraglider before and want to try it out, the easiest way is to do a tandem flight. However, as this sport requires a high level of technical knowledge and important practical training, the best option is to be accompanied by an expert pilot.
The tandem paraglider is designed to carry the weight of two people, the pilot and the passenger, without the need for the passenger to have any prior knowledge. As mentioned before, there are no age or physical limitations and it is only necessary that the person has a minimum health condition (no heart diseases or scared of heights, for example). Minors must have a minimum weight and have the authorization of their parents.
Beautiful scenery and relaxing vibes, floating down a river is always a fun activity to do. Now, can you imagine hours upon hours rafting? Not just for the fun part, river rafting helps participants to pay attention to what’s in front of them and focus on safety. You can organise a rafting trip with those who have experience in this line of business.
Graha Adventure is our recommendation. They have the best facilities, equipment and safety. Featuring the island’s longest Whitewater rafting trip, you can expect to get wet and enjoy a thrilling journey from start to finish along the enigmatic Ubud’s Ayung River.
