While thinking of exploring Paris for the first time, people tend to stick to the beaten path that takes them to the famous landmarks such as the Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. But it is now time to think out of the box! Whether you are a first time visitor or not, chances are high that you may want to see the strange and bizarre side of this wonderful French capital. Certainly, Paris has much more to offer than an assortment of romantic and avant-garde artistic memories. If you widen your scope of exploration, you will be astonished to see that this cultural city is also the abode of several adventures that can put your guts at test!
Face the Sight of Death
If you wish to explore a creepy adventurous site in this romantic city, Les Catacombes should top your list on places to visit. Your adventurous attempt from the gateway to death takes you to an array of dark, fusty tunnels below the streets, which hold a horrifying stack of human skulls and bones. This secretive tomb was made in the 18th century when the congested cemeteries were being vacant in grounding the dead bodies after the French Revolution. With the signboard that shows, “STOP! Here is the Empire of Death.” and the presence of a tall spirit with a hooded coat, the adventurous tour is not for a faint hearted! The time you spend for 7 Euros on this tour will directly vary with the level of fear you have!
Take a Plunge of 12,000 Feet
If you have ever jumped from a plane, you know how exhilarating this adventure can be! This is the Aerokart’s free-fall wind tunnel in the city that runs on 12 robust engines producing winds at 155-mph beneath you. So, cool down! You are going to take a plunge indoors. The height for free fall is equal to over 33 Eiffel Towers stacked upon one another. Now, this is the real adventure at 70 Euros!
Eat in the Dark
One can also visit the Dans Le Noir where I loved its green vegetarian menu as well as eating in dark. Dare yourself to eat what comes to you by while being fully in dark. The underlying idea here is to test your senses of taste and smell! A two-course meal here is served for 40 Euros.
So, dare yourself to go this path next time you visit Paris and be surprised with how much fun you will have.
