Our recent Wisconsin snowmobiling episode has us in the mood for another adrenaline rush. Lucky for us, when it comes to heart-pounding activities, Wisconsin delivers. Here are just a handful of places in Wisconsin to get your fix:
1. AtmosphAir Skydiving Center – Fort Atkinson
Looking for the ultimate rush? It’s hard to top jumping out of a plane! And that’s exactly what you can do at the AtmosphAir Skydiving Center in Fort Atkinson. Owners Bo Babovic and Alex Kolacio have more than 16,000 jumps under their belt, so you can breathe a little easier knowing you’re in safe hands during this extreme adventure.
If you prefer having two feet on the ground, consider rounding up your pals for some paintball action. Wisconsin’s largest paintball field, located just 20 minutes north of Green Bay, boasts three fields and numerous two-story forts. Rest assured: A trained referee is always on hand to safeguard the combat zone and prevent potentially illegal battle ploys.
Scuba diving in Wisconsin? It’s true…it’s a real thing. You can experience the underwater world at the Divepoint Scuba Center in Stevens Point, where there’s a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) certified dive center. Classes are offered for beginner and advanced divers, and the trained instructors at Divepoint will help you find the best equipment, too. Once you're certified, explore the many shipwrecks found in our Great Lakes and other inland lakes throughout Wisconsin.
There’s a track for every skill level at Toad’s Cove in La Crosse. With courses available for practice and racing events, you can be a spectator and join in on the fun if you want. They even have a new indoor course so you can feel the thrill all year round.
5. Chimney Rock Park Zip Line Tours – Wisconsin Dells
Zip down 15 consecutive tree-to-tree lines dropping 500+ feet from the highest castellated mound in the world. At Vertical Illusions Adventure Center in the Dells, you’ll take in 120 miles of unparalleled Wisconsin scenery on a clear day.
