Air Combat USA provides a completely different extreme aerial experience and feeds your need for speed. Here ordinary people can play Top Gun like real fighter pilots -- and you don't even need a pilot's license. The state-of-the-art planes are million dollar Italian Marchetti light aircrafts and once in the air, gravity pressure can hit your body at forces equal to 6 times your body weight -- enough pressure to make you immediately black out. Again, you're taught to tighten your stomach muscles to prevent this from happening -- but rest assured, if you do black out, the instructor will take control of the plane.
The flight instructors who ride shotgun with you simulate some serious air combat including stomach-dropping nosedives if your plane gets "hit." Bring a friend, and you can take to the skies together -- like Maverick versus Iceman. They will even teach you how to abandon plane and parachute to safety.

Morristown Airport
50 Airport Road Suite 120
Morristown, NJ 07960
   Who Drives:  You
   Restrictions:  I think you have to be at least 10yrs. old to drive.
   Comments:  This has to be one of the best kept secrets.  You can rent a four seat plane (one seat for the pilot three for you and your guests, depending on total weight & amount of gas in the plane) for around $149 per hour to anywhere you desire.  Since this is a flying school, you get to do a little of the flying. 
     If your plane is GPS equipped, you can take pictures of your house, just supply the GPS coordinates to the pilot.  Most mapping programs give the coordinates. 
    Don't eat before you go, and try to go on a fairly calm day it's easier on the stomach.
Great for a surprise birthday present.
    Our instructor Steve was the absolute greatest, he went way beyond the call of duty.
Thank you Steve for making Megan a very happy person. -- Last visited on 10-09

   Updated:  10-10
Perhaps the purest form of adrenaline rush is standing at the edge of a 350-foot cliff and asking yourself if you have the nerve to jump. At Canyon Swing in New Zealand, that's the exact blood-pumping, soul-searching moment you'll experience. You won't actually be asked to jump without a safety measure; the swing is a system of climbing ropes and a body harness allowing you to freefall over 200 feet at speeds reaching over 90 miles an hour. If you don't have the nerve to jump on your own, the sadistic staff will give you a helping push -- when you least expect it. After your 3-second drop, they'll allow you a 2-minute recovery as you swing over the lazy rapids of the river below. However, we guarantee that the rush of adrenaline, endorphins and testosterone will last a good 30 minutes -- and bragging rights last a lifetime.

Here at Tank-alot we had a dream which could have become a nightmare. I'm often asked to do crazy things around London in tank's, we usually use our pink Abbott "Shown here" she's a beauty, really makes a splash, paparazzi love it not to mention Japanese tourists, serious happy snappers. But the Abbot doesn't lend its self well for passengers. So at Christmas we pulled out the best armored personnel carrier from 30 we had laying around. A bit of a special not only fitted with a turret for when it was on the Berlin wall, and one of only 13 ever made but she also had some strange mine laying or clearing gismo on its rear which we binned. We decided on Gloss white as you would. Chopped a few windows in the side fitted smoked glass Fridge; twin DVD's reversing cameras completely re trimmed the interior. We found the army had left the massive diesel powered crew heater in one of the 432,s so we threw that in as well.

Barnegat Bay - W. Salem Avenue & Holly Avenue
   Flyboarding is the newest phenomenon in Barnegat Bay! Brittany likes to say it's like a wakeboard with a fire hose coming out of the bottom that propels you into the air. The propulsion of water is coming from the jet-ski.  The height of the flyboarder is controlled by the trained jet-ski instructor. Flyboarding is very easy to learn for people of many ages. We will have you up in the air in minutes. .

Extreme Seal Experience
   Where:  Chesapeake, Virginia
   Length of Adventure:  7 - 14 days
   Updated:  10-10
For an adventure that makes riding in a plane or car look like child's play, head to Virginia for the Extreme Seal Experience. At this amped-up boot camp, average Joes will undergo 2 years of hardcore Navy Seals training -- in two grueling weeks. You'll eat, sleep and breathe the life of a real soldier and anyone crazy enough to enlist (and pay for) this experience better be in peak physical condition. During the 100-yard dash, you'll carry a "wounded" buddy on your back and slide into freezing swamp water filled with poisonous snakes.
The pinnacle of the extreme Seal experience is called Hell Night. It's simulated ground combat where you'll need every skill that's been drilled into you for the past 2 weeks.
