The most dangerous attractive places around the world

CN Tower Toronto

Holds the record in the Guinness Book of tourist attractions.
Allows people to walk freely on the 1.5 meters edge that surrounds the upper part of the building.
The CN Tower is an attraction for all ages and have been opened to the public since September 1, 2011.

Cage of Death

Since opening its doors in July 2008, Crocosaurus Cove Darwin has set a new standard of interaction when it comes to the Top and most iconic reptiles.
Operated by an over-head monorail and designed for 1 or 2 people per cage, the Cage of Death has you suspended above the crocs before being lowered into the pen to get an up close and personal look at these amazing reptiles.

Death Road Tour

Known as the most dangerous road in the world, the 60 kilometer expanse of highway running between La Paz and Coroico, Bolivia has claimed numerous lives. The North Yungas Road is as small as 10 feet across in some locations and has no guardrails to keep you from falling over the edge. If you have the misfortune of going over the edge, your vehicle would come to rest after falling more than 2,000 feet to the bottom off the canyon.

Bungee Jumping into an Active Volcano

It might noy be the smartest thing to do, but it will definitely get your blood pumping. 
 For $10,000, you can bungee jump from a helicopter into the mouth of Chile’s Villarrica volcano. The volcano is active with pools of white-hot lava bubbling below where you will come within 213 meters of the pool of molten lava. 

El Caminito del Rey

El Caminito del Rey or the path of the king was turned from a road linking the two electricity stations, to a tourist attraction for climbing enthusiasts and adventurers
The path of king is still the same since 1905

Swim in Shark Infested Waters

When you really want to test what you are made from, try swimming in shark infested waters. The New Smyrna Beach in Florida is known as the shark capital of the world. Just an hour northeast of Orlando, New Smyrna Beach features inviting white sandy beaches. 
But beware, Just a short distance into the water, danger awaits.

Volcano Helicopter Tours

Seeing the inside of an active volcano from a helicopter sounds like a great idea, but it can also be a deadly one. Many people have taken the risk by touring the inside of active volcanoes on the Hawaiian Islands with Hawaiian Island helicopter tours. The tours have not always come out as planned, with over 30 people having died from helicopter crashes during the tours since 1995.

Swimming with the Jellyfish

The greatest predator in Australia is not a shark, a snake or even a crocodile. It’s a box jellyfish. Located on the Northern coastline of Australia near the mouth of the rivers, the box jellyfish seems harmless, but has killed more people than all other deadly Australian animals combined.

Cliff Jumping at Bash Bish Falls

The Bash Bish Falls in Massachusetts are very beautiful and a great place to take pictures, but the Falls harbor some hidden dangers. The Bash Bish Falls look great, but the edges of the cliffs have claimed many lives with crumbling ledges as well as pools that are shallower than expected.

Climbing Mount Cook in New Zealand

The Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand looks like an idyllic place to climb. But the park is prone to avalanches and conditions that prevent rescuers from reaching you when you are in danger. The park has claimed many would-be and professional climbers.

Walk the Plank at Mt. Huashan China

Hike along the face of Mount Huashan in China, thousands of feet in the air as you walk over wooden 12 inch wide planks tied into the face of the cliffs. This is definitely not a family friendly activity. It doesn’t sound that bad, but there are NO hand rails, and the only thing keeping you on the side of the mountain is a safety harness, if you so choose to buy one. If you plan on checking out Mt. Huashan, I’ve got a simple travel tip for you. Watch your step!
