Start gently and work up to full-blown adventure with a guided bide ride through South Jersey's roads and trails. Action Wheels in Deptford leads a variety of rides for all levels of expertise. Join in one of their easy flat trail outings or a go-for-broke mountain expedition.
For anyone who has ever been accused of driving with a lead foot, the Atco Raceway lets you do it legally. Hitch a ride with professional speed demons for a few laps around the track in a real race car. Then when you get the nerve to try the real thing, Doug Foley's Drag Racing School at Atco will put you behind the wheel and teach you the maneuvers racers use on the track. Or learn how to race the dirt tracks at Bridgeport Speedway. The experts will teach you the tricks to safe speeding during several racing schools held throughout the season.
As if leaping out of a plane at 14,000 feet isn't daring enough, Freefall Adventures in Williamstown ups the thrill factor with X-treme skydiving out of a turbine helicopter. Whether you are an experienced skydiver certified for solo jumps or a first-timer going for a tandem dive with a professional parachutist, the company combines safety with excitement for an adrenalin-filled adventure in the skies.
And as long as the skies are clear, the Black Tie Balloon Team of Southampton will launch you up above the birds for a sky view of the Rancocas Creek region. If dangling hundreds of feet in the air in the basket of a balloon doesn't make you gasp, the view will.
So whether you are an enthusiastic spectator, enthusiastic amateur or enthusiastic thrill-seeker, head to South Jersey where "good sports" can always find good sports.
