For those who have no idea about this sport let me tell those readers – in this sport one gets into a huge ball and then the ball is slid down the hill with some slope. The more fun evolving sites in London while zorbing is Parliament Hill or Greenwich Park.

The nearest location to have the experience of the sport is GoZorbing at Whyteleafe in Surrey.

The price ticket to enjoy the ball begins from £49.99 for a single or at a maximum of two persons. In the case of two persons, both are strapped in the adverse position of the zorb. For more involvement give a shot to Hydro Zorbing. The fare costs the same, with the exact principle, with the only difference that the massive ball is filled with forty litres of water smashing you from all sides.

2. Paintballing

The sport is an indoor part of the games. Anyhow, the game is being played since 1992 in the regions of Boston. A scarce awareness of the sport is seen in few people but those who play this game play with real zeal and enthusiasm. The sport is entertaining and full of enjoys. This is mostly played in NYC (New York City).

In London, it is taking its turn and turning the players up and down in an aspect of thrill and pushing the adrenalin to the next level. By the way, it is played in Bunker 51 in Greenwich. The place is a nuclear bunker which is at the current moment a decommissioned place, and this thing makes it perfect for the sport.

The site also supports and boosts up the zombie apocalypse. The price here to enjoy the sport is £25 for the beginner level. The game in this location offers Laser Tag, to have less or no bruises.

You will get the pump the moment you will have the icy mountain or the icy cliff in your view. The sport is over thrilling and keeps on increasing the fear factor with every step you tuck onto the ice.

If you have not yet seen the round-up of amazing climbing centres in London, then venture the O2 starting from £26. Be a silhouette ants whom you gaze from the base to the dome’s top. You will have a ‘go’ type feeling, but believe me, marketing as intrepid will fall to a false.

When you are at the location or at the top-notch, do not expect to have a scenic view of the city. The city’s skyscrapers, including Canary Wharf, will all be out of the sight what you will have! The moment, and the mesmerizing landscape plus some fresh breathes.

Great satisfaction is achieved when one climbs Vertical Chill in London, punching the holes in the ice wall at the rear side of Ellis Brigham in Covent Garden. The one-on-one session for the costs of £50 is for the starters, £35 is a charge on groups, the decline in price steps down to £25 for the professionals plus if they have their own gear.

4. Abseiling

This also a mountaineering act but here the only difference is you are descending the mountain. In layman language of mountain climbers, you are working with the gravity instead of against it.

Many charities support and aid the sport at different London site like ArcelorMittal Orbit. The abseiling starts from £85.

5. White Water Rafting

Lee Valley White Water Centre is that place in London where the adventurous persons can lure the white foams of the river. Apart from white water rafting, there is an option of other activities too like canoeing and kayaking.

A little outside the London City in Hertfordshire, the risk is worth taking in the roaring waters of Thames. £49 is the starting amount to paddle the raft in the Thames.

6. Bouldering

It is way similar to rock climbing, and the only difference is that instead of real rock or mountain climbing, there is rope-free climbing performed at shallow height over the crash pads. The reason behind this is that even if one falls, he or she should not have severe injuries.

The type of difficulty sets the routes and the equipment. Generally only climbing shoes and a chalk bag are the essentials.

The arch is a region which has a three-venue bouldering pivot. The real one is 10,000 square feet at The Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey, the expansion compelled it to open another 11,000 square feet venue, plus more demand resulted in the third one too with the same size of the second venue.

The ways are ranked as per the difficulty level from V0 (the simplest) to V9 ( the hardest) which accompanies 300-400 several ways to try at each compound.

8. Parkour

If someone has played the high graphics games like Prince of Persia or Assassins Creed or Witcher, then we all fall in the same pit. We get so fascinated by the characters like “Ezio Auditore Da Firenze” or Alcatraz of Crysis II and III.

What I’m trying to tell you all, is that the things those fictitious characters do or skills they perform all are the part of an actual sport – PARKOUR.

Parkouring is a fantastic sport. It’s not only played in London but also at sites of the world like Tokyo, Beijing, New York. In fact, the players do not need some specific location, and on the contrary, every location is their playground.
