Are your kids adrenaline junkies?

At Six Flags there is this attraction that you basically lay down in, strap yourself to a harness, raise to the top and just drop. It swings you into the air over the park. It is not a ride, just an attraction and the teens love to do it. I guess it is supposed to simulate flying. I get ill every time I think about my son doing it because in my minds eye, I see the cable snapping or some other awful mishap.

Do your teens like adrenaline inducing activies? Things like parasailing, bungee or cliff jumping or any of those other crazy attractions?

My DD did that at Kings Dominion about 4 summers ago. She would have been 11 or close to it. We all love that kind of stuff. The faster, the higher the better. When my DD turns 18 in 3 years we are planning on all going ski diving.

no, thank goodness.  

even if my son was, he cant do anything like that until the dr. oks it.  He had a severely herniated disc that is still mending.

Nope thank goodness. All 4 of my children are terrified of anything more than a Ferris wheel.

Yes, two of my boys are adrenaline junkies--but they usually engage in otherwise safe activities. My daughter, on the other hand, is much worse. She gets herself into a lot of trouble.

My dd likes crazy rides at amusement parks like the drop zone but she's not into other adrenaline inducing activities like bungee jumping or parasailing.

No.   My oldest doesn't even particularly like roller coasters!     My youngest is the dare devil, but he doesn't do extreme....anything.  lol.       I would probably like that attraction!

2 of my 4 are adrenaline junkies big time. DS number 2 and DD both will try anything once. Love rollar coaster rock climbing glider flying etc. I am assuming they get it from thier father who jumped out of perfectly functioning aircraft when he was in service just because it was fun.
