Shooting From A Mile Away A Dream? Well, Not At This Shooting Range

You heard of the infamous mile high club, but I bet you never heard of a less decadent but equally exciting “One-Mile Club.” Unlike mile high club, this “One-Mile Club” is nothing sensual or sexual, well, that’s unless shooting firearms gives the same high as an orgasm. One thing for sure, it certainly don’t happen up in the sky; it happens at the range. A shooting range to be precise. Located at the Rocky Mountain region of Wyoming, U.S.A. is the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience that offers an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shoot at targets that are over a mile away.

Cage Of Death Lets You Get Up Close With Crocodile In The Water

Apparently, you have better odds off surviving in the sea with sharks than in a river with just one croc. Perhaps, that is why there are tours where you can get up close and personal with sharks within the safety of a shark cage (which sometimes may not be as safe as one thought) and not up close and personal croc tours.

LEGO House Is The New Destination Every Brick Heads Should Not Miss

Since September 2017, LEGO fans have one more must-visit place when they are in Denmark, LEGO’s home country. It is not a theme park, nor is it a factory; it is the new LEGO House. Designed by architectural firm BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), this sprawling 12,000 square meter (129,167 square feet) compound is made up of 21 giant white bricks stacked on top of each other in random fashion and features facade covered with tiles, giving the illusion that the building is made of LEGO bricks. Interestingly, in a nod to the toy maker’s classic 2×4 LEGO brick, the roof of the top tier structure incorporates eight studs to mimic the classic brick and each stud is embedded with light that shoots into the night sky to welcome visitors arriving by air to Billund Airport.

Japan’s 65-Foot Snow Corridor Is For Those Who Misses Snow In Spring

This is probably what the Red Sea will look like if it wasn’t frozen when Moses kind of parted it. Except that this isn’t the Red Sea and obviously, they are not frozen water, AKA ice. These are snow. Specifically, they are wall of snow found along the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route in Japan. Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route stretches some 96 kilometers (56 miles), high on top of the North Alpine mountains. It is also dubbed the “roof of Japan” that connects Toyama and Shinano Omachi. What you see here is essentially a heavily snow covered locality that had snow expelled to expose the otherwise covered winding road. And yes, this place has that much of snow.

Behind The Scene Of The Upcoming AVATAR-Themed Park At Disney

Director James Cameron had this crazy idea known today as AVATAR as far back as 1995 but back then technology wasn’t available to make it without breaking the bank.

Spamusement Is where You Get To Soak In Hot Spring On A Roller Coaster

Vacationing is all about opportunity cost. Meaning, you have to chose one activity over another at any one time. For example, if you want to relax at a hot spring, you will have to forgo the excitement and thrill of amusement park. But soon, in Beppu city on the island of Kyushu, you can have the cake and eat it as far as spa and amusement park is concerned. This means that you can enjoy the relaxing hot spring, AKA onsen, Beppu city is known for while screaming your lungs out on a roller coaster ride. To be clear, we are talking about doing both things simultaneously, not one activity after another. And that, folks, is the ingenuity behind the idea of Spamusement which, as the name suggests, is a spa and an amusement park hybrid that will be realized in the city of Beppu city.
