If you want to experience the excitement of parachuting but lack the courage to jump out of a plane, you could get a feeling of just what it feels like to parachute in the sky.
The parachute simulation machine is in essence a wind tunnel. Participants can "parachute" inside this tubular passage filled with controllable air streams, which makes parachuting "the safest extreme sport".
Recommendation: Extreme Space Station at Happy Valley
Add.: OCT Plaza, No.16 Xihua Avenue, Chengdu
When the summer sun is high, what else is cooler than stylishly skiing down (or tumbling down) the slope? It's as gratifying as jumping into a hot spring in winter.

If you want to truly unleash yourself and scream at the top of your lungs, the haunted house is a pretty good choice besides the high-octane and high-speed rides in theme parks.
Many haunted houses nowadays not only boast full-fledged storyline, but there are also real staffs dressed up as ghosts and monsters to make the scary experience even more visceral.
Recommendation: Chantong Ghost School
Add.: 5/F Number One City, No.1 Xiaokejia Alley, Chengdu
The followings are "battlefields" for the pros, not for rookies and newbies~
Downhill Mountain Biking
Downhill mountain biking is a gravity-powered activity that involves riding a mountain bicycle or other vehicles down an alpine course.
Those that have ridden a bicycle down a paved slope understand how fun it is, and that gave rise to downhill mountain biking. Professional downhill bikers blast down steep and complex mountainous terrains on bicycles at speed of 50 to 80km/h or even faster, so the excitement is quite extreme.
Recommendation: Yangtianwo on Longquan Mountains
I learned from enthusiasts that Yangtianwo on Longquan Mountains is a magnet for downhill bikers who gather there every week, so it might be a good choice for any bike-riding thrill-seekers out there.
Add.: Junction of National Highway No.318 and Oupeng Avenue, Longquanyi District, Chengdu
