Red Deer mud heroes faces 6 km of deep woods, up-to-your-neck swims in pits of sticky mud and dark tunnel crawls at Canyon – and you’ll have some crazy fun doing it. We think you nutty lunatics might also like these other four extreme adventures in Red Deer.
Jump from a plane
At Red Deer’s Skydive Big Sky, you can jump out of a speeding plane with a professional instructor strapped to your back for safe keeping – or, as if that wasn’t wild enough, you can free-fall solo – just you the eagles and 9,500 ft. of straight down. The Big Sky drop zone is 11 km from downtown Innisfail – so you’ll jump over rolling patches of green and yellow farmland and catch the Rockies on the western horizon.
Explore history and the wilderness
Pursuit Adventure is a Red Deer business with adventure in their name – it’s what they do. They’ll take you on a tour of Red Deer’s heritage sights – Fort Normandeau, Sunnybrook Farm and historic downtown. From your base in Red Deer, you can go on guided day treks in the West Country and half-day whitewater raft trips on the Red Deer River.
Water jetpacks at Sylvan
Sylvan Lake is a beach town just 23 minutes west of Red Deer. You will spend the day choosing from a gazillion flavours of ice cream at the Big Moo, cruising the beach and strapping on a superhero water jet pack. With a jet board strapped to your feet, you can fly, spin, twist, flip and dive like a dolphin. You have to watch the Alberta Flyboard video to imagine – it’s an insane dance-flying water-skate-wakeboard for Superman. You’re going to love it.
