New York City is one of the most lively and entertaining places on the planet. There’s a little something for everybody in the Big Apple, from fine dining to Broadway shows. It is especially good for anyone who likes an extra shot of adrenaline in their day. Do you love the thrill of doing something out of the ordinary? Do you seek adventure, and maybe just a little bit of danger? If so, read on to see our top 5 activities in New York that will feed your wild side!

Taking a Helicopter Ride Over the City

Have you ever wondered what the New York skyline looks like from 1,000 feet in the air? You can find the answer on one of the city’s famed helicopter rides. Though these generally last for less than 15 minutes, you will be swept across Manhattan to get a glimpse of some of the most breathtaking views in the city. As part of the tour, your pilot will give you interesting information about many of New York’s most famous attractions.

Accomplice The Show

Do you enjoy the excitement of solving a mystery? If so, Accomplice The Show may be just the thing for you. This interactive mystery will take you through the streets of New York, asking strangers for clues (some actors, some not) as you get closer to solving the case. Accomplice the Show is great for anyone who loves to roleplay and enjoys the thrill of the hunt!

Skydiving Over Long Island

Skydiving is often regarded as the ultimate adrenaline rush, and for good reason. It’s one thing to fly above the city in a plane or helicopter, but it’s something else entirely to plummet toward the Earth at 120 miles per hour. If this one makes you a little nervous, don’t worry, you can sign up for a tandem jump with a professional skydiving instructor to help put your mind at ease.

Try Out An Italian Sports Car

There’s nothing quite like speeding down an open road in a sports car. In NYC, you can take it up a notch by getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari or Lamborghini of your choice. Just put on a helmet and take one of these sleek rides out for a spin on an authentic autocross course. Get ready to put the pedal to the metal!

Taste The World’s Spiciest Curry

Not everyone is a speed demon or skydiving enthusiast; some people seek out their thrills at the dinner table. If you like a little extra kick with every bite, head over to the Brick Lane Curry House for what many claim to be the spiciest curry in the world. You will need to sign a disclaimer before partaking, but if you manage to finish your plate, you’ll get a spot in their hall of fame!
