From endless seas, to mountains and desert, Dubai is a perfect natural concourse for people looking for adventure. To add to the natural beauty, the sight from the sky is spectacular, which only means that there are many options for those looking for some out of the box adventure in the city.

1. Bungee Jumping
Many thrill seekers who love to fly high often rate Bungee Jumping as the most thrilling sport ever. The unprecedented speed of the fall can send some serious chill to your spine for sure. There is nothing quite like the thrill when you hear the reverse countdown of "3, 2, 1" and take the leap towards the ground. With the speed sometimes touching 60 Mph against a backdrop of inspirational views of the city, this is a must-do! Dubai's first permanent bungee spot, Gravity Zone delivers both a safe and certified plunge as you bungee. This definitely Scores 10/10 on the adrenaline scale.

2. Thrilling Slide
We're sure a lot of you must be thinking, what is a water park doing in a list that features bungee jumping, and shark diving? Well, the slides of Dubai are not for the weak-hearted! Wild Wadi Water Park at Dubai offers some of the most hair raising you may have undertaken in your life. If you believe you have what it takes, try Tantrum Alley and Burj Surj. If your heart still pumps for more, Wipeout and Riptide Flowriders offer the surfing experience unlike any with the latter one being one of only four such rides in the world. The good part is that you can take your cameras for memories that last a lifetime.

3. Sandboarding
Believe it or not but you can have the excitement of snowboarding in Dubai. Puzzled? Well, that could only happen in Dubai, in the desert instead and of course without any snow. The sport is called Snowboarding which takes just four hours of practice and you're good to go. Snowboarding requires a great amount of skills to be executed with perfection. Don't let the casual attire make you believe that it is a cake walk. Al Hamer, Dubai's highest sand dune at 100 meters is a perfect spot from where you can start your descend down the slope to experience the thrill of a lifetime. It surely is one of the more unique experiences that Dubai has to offer.

Nearby mountains around the city of Dubai (1-1.5 hours by car) are ideal for Mountain Biking and you'll find a host of communities and groups showing their love and passion for the sport there.
