The Science of Adrenaline Rushes
Updated: Apr 15, 2022
Generally, the moment plans are introduced of an amusement park being planned near a megapolis, it sends not just the media into a frenzy but also inculcates excitement amongst the residents of the community and the local government. Who doesn't love an amusement park and especially one that’s nearby as well. What really seals the deal is that these parks are money makers not just for themselves but also for the communities in which they are located.
Interestingly, the feeling of adrenaline also provides a number of health benefits.Adrenaline rushes result in improved vision due to dilated pupils, increases blood flow and alertness and remarkably also decreases the sensation of pain. People who enjoy the feeling of adrenaline rushes are known as adrenaline junkies. They believe in chasing activities that provide excessive thrills.
Scientifically there is nothing wrong in being an adrenaline junkie and it is not listed as an addiction either. However, getting your fix in a safe manner which does not harm you or people around you and doesn’t get in the way of a regular lifestyle means that certain activities will be off limits.
Luckily for you, amusement parks are one of the safest routes to get your adrenaline fix! Extreme rollercoasters, haunted houses that require a waiver at entry, BASE jumping and extreme sports like motorcycle racing are all easily accessible in your local theme parks. If you are feeling adventurous, you can also opt for swimming with sharks (in a cage, of course!) indoor rock climbing, bungee jumping, escape rooms etc. Through these activities you can easily get your heart pounding without putting your life on the line.
