Unique adrenalin activities Down Under.
It’s no secret that New Zealand is the country pumped with adrenalin. But some activities are a bit weirder than others. Of course, throwing yourself from a bridge makes perfect sense in bungy jumping, but rolling down a hill in a hamster ball is just plain insane.
Here are the weird and unique adrenalin activities in New Zealand that you won’t find in many other places in the world. To check out the “normal” adrenalin activities, see: Adrenalin Activities in New Zealand.
