Friendships are very important, and spending time with friends is a way for many people to maintain those friendships. Spending time together can be simple – it doesn’t always have to involve going out of the house. However, sometimes you might be looking for a little bit more than that and would like something different and fun that you could do with your friends, and if so, there are some unique options for you to consider.

1. Gel Balling

You’ve probably already heard about it, but if you haven’t, then the easiest way to explain what it is can be by comparing it to paintball. Just like paintball, gel ball is a sport that allows you to shoot your friends with special guns known as gel blasters.

The main difference is that instead of paintballs, gel balls are used and they don’t hurt as much, so if that was keeping you from enjoying a fun game of paintball, you can try out GBU without worrying about bruises. While there’s still plenty of fun and competitiveness involved in the game, it won’t hurt much, and that might let you take a few more chances while playing.

Playing with just one friend is an option, but the more friends you can get in on the fun, the more exciting it will be.

2. Escape Rooms

Another fun activity that you can enjoy with friends is escape rooms. These are places where people from different walks of life meet up to solve puzzles.

The way escape rooms work is that you are locked in a room for an hour or less, and during that time your goal is to find clues and solve puzzles to get out. In order to win you need to escape the room, as the name would suggest before the time runs out. You’ll need to put your intellect to work using clues, hints, and sometimes even intuitive leaps in order to complete tasks and achieve the ultimate goal which is always escaping from a room.

There’s always a storyline involved, which will help guide you along as well as provide an interesting context for everything else.

3. Karting

Karting involves driving around in small carts – usually between 6 and 10 of them are on the track at once, but there are some tracks where there might be more.

It’s a fairly simple concept, but it’s definitely one of the most exciting things to try out when you’re looking for an adrenaline rush. Karting actually has a much longer history than many people realize, and it’s been around in one form or another since the early 20th century.  Today, there are even championship series out there where you can see how talented drivers are when they have all of their equipment to use.


If you want to try out karting but don’t have any equipment of your own, there are companies out there that rent them out so that anyone can give it a try.

4. Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is one of those sports that gives you a great workout while still being interesting to do. It’s also good for your mental health since it forces you to focus, face challenges, and ultimately overcome them.

The best thing about rock climbing is that there are indoor facilities that let you climb at any time of the day since you don’t have to rely on the weather is just right. That’s why so many people go rock climbing when they are looking for a way to spend time with their friends. At most facilities, there is also staff on hand in case something goes wrong which means that everyone can feel safe while still having fun and getting in shape at the same time.

You can do this leisurely, or even make it a fun competition on who can reach the highest point or who can climb up the toughest route.

5. Skydiving

Skydiving doesn’t have to be a dangerous activity if you pick the right place. Even if you’ve never tried it before, it’s actually relatively easy because there are professionals monitoring you and making sure that nothing goes wrong.

Of course, these people know their job well so even if something does go wrong, they should be able to get you back on the ground quickly without putting your life in danger. Skydiving is a popular activity because it lets you experience something truly unique. There’s nothing else quite like flying through the air with just a parachute!

Spending time with friends is always a good time. Whether you’re just staying at home or hitting up the movies, there’s always something for everyone. However, giving yourselves an adrenalin rush through activities such as skydiving or karting can be fun and exciting. Going for new and exciting experiences is what life is all about, so be sure to cherish it and enjoy an extra boost now and then. This way you’ll grow as a person and always have fond memories of the past!
