Muster your courage and try treetop trekking on your next outing.
#3 Indoor Skydiving
Not sure if you'd like skydiving? That's okay, you can always get a feel for what it would be like by going indoor skydiving first! Indoor skydiving is a relatively new attraction that suspends participants in a skydiving simulation chamber. Essentially, strong gusts of wind are generated inside the chamber and will lift you up into the air, making you feel like you're actually skydiving. Take your love to new heights by going indoor skydiving on your next date.

#4 Hang Gliding
This one will definitely test your bravery—hang gliding is a recreational air sport in which a pilot flies a light aircraft that is lifted and propelled by the wind. People who are new to hang gliding will be accompanied by a professional instructor on a tandem flight where they will learn how to control and maneuver the hang glider. See the world with your significant other from a bird's eye view.
#5 Swimming With Sharks
Would you ever swim with sharks? In some aquariums across the world, specialized programs will allow patrons to suit up in scuba gear and dive into the tank to swim among sharks and other water creatures. Most programs will require you to have some open water scuba diving experience or certifications, so you may want to partake in a scuba diving program first before trying this. The one benefit of scuba diving in an aquarium is that the environment is more controlled than it is in open water.
