BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/06/12 -- Cheapflights.com, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, suggests giving dad the thrill of a lifetime this upcoming Father's Day on Sunday, June 17th. This year, forget the beer, socks and novelty tie and opt instead for one of Cheapflights.com's Top 10 Adrenaline Escapes for Father's Day. These adventures are all great ways to give Dad a break from the every day and reward him for all he does with the rush of pursuing an extreme passion...even for just one day.
Here are the first five thrill-seeking adventures from Cheapflights.com's Top 10 Adrenaline Escapes for Father's Day:
•Harley your way down Route 66 - Motorcycles are among boys' most favored toys, and there's no better rush than having the power and speed of a classic Harley within your grasp. Combine that with a ride down one of the US' most famous stretches of road, Route 66, and call it adrenaline heaven. For a unique and exhilarating experience, gents can look into participating in organized group tours or simply rent a Harley and create their own race. One thing is guaranteed: it's sure to be one of the best rides of his life.
•Ridin' the Rodeo - While the Rodeo is not for the faint of heart, it's certainly a unique rush like no other. Cowboys are the epitome of the manly man: galloping across prairies, defeating enemies, lassoing wild bulls and acting as protectors. The Rodeo puts courage and skill to the test like a real cowboy, but it's also a lot of fun! So, for those who dreamed of being a cowboy when they were little and are feeling up to the challenge, head to the very heart of Rodeo in Dallas and check out the bull-riding schools of some former Rodeo professionals. Those who can stay on for eight seconds are granted professional status. But be warned: you're in for a hard landing.
•Bend it like Beckham, for real - While soccer may seem tame in comparison to the Rodeo and riding a Harley down Route 66, the unique experience of a soccer training camp can be just as exhilarating, particularly for those who go mad for the sport. Camps are available in some of the most soccer-notorious cities around the world, such as Barcelona. The tours include real professional training with coaches from FC Barcelona in the original training sites such as Nou Camp, which offers a training match with a local team and tickets to a major league event! The excitement of being on professional turf, playing, and then watching a live game is not to be missed.
•Sniper for a day - Give your Dad the gift of living out a scene from his favorite sniper film, and let him star as the hero or villain, depending on the film! Requiring absolute accuracy and nerves of steel, snipers have a very hard job. Anyone who has ever experienced the excitement of winning a toy for their sweetheart by playing at the shooting booth in an amusement park is sure to find sniper training in the UK sheer elation. Check out the "Be Sniper for a Day" opportunity at WMS Firearms Training in Wales. Established by SAS hero Andy McNab, this promises to offer a flavor of professional training and an authentic experience that is truly unique to the world of elite snipers and fighters.
•Formula 1 driver for a day - Take a walk, or a drive, in the shoes of a Formula 1 professional for a day. The knowledge that you're behind the wheel of the ultimate driving machine, which only 24 men in this world have qualified to drive, is exhilarating on its own. Couple that with actually taking a spin in it and you're in speed-thrill heaven. Fans of watching high-performance cars whiz their way around a race track as the engine noise blows their eardrums out should check out AGS Formula. Set up by a former Formula 1 driver Paul Ricard and his racing team, and nestled upon one of Europe's sunniest tracks in Luc en Provence, this hands-on racing destination will put Dad and his driving skills to the test.
Rounding out our list thrill-seeking adventures for dad are: Captain Hook sailing adventure in Hong Kong; off-roading in Dubai; survival training in the bush in New Zealand; ice climbing in Norway; and a face-off with a Great White in South Africa.
