Do you consider yourself a thrill-seeker? Do you crave the adrenaline rush that comes with doing something risky? Maybe one of these deadly sports could be your next adventure...

White Water Rafting 

Whitewater rafting is when you take a raft into rushing, rapid waterways that are so turbulent that they appear to be white. Simple enough, right? People have been doing this for hundreds of years, but it wasn't until recent years that this sport took off. Whitewater rafting is exhilarating, accessible, and yes—extremely dangerous.

That doesn't count the hundreds of broken bones, thousands of close calls, and countless ruined family vacations because of it.
