These things might not always make sense, but some people actually enjoy doing them. Whether we’re talking about adrenaline sports or absolutely extreme stunts like this one, they are among the most common hobbies in the world. The risk of failing and the exaltation of completing the task afterwards are very well worth the risk. You might be wondering why, so let’s revisit a biology lesson in order to explain this.

It all boils down to a hormone called adrenaline. It is released by our adrenal glands usually in really stressful situations, thus getting the name ‘fight or flight’ hormone. What it does is it speeds up all of our normal functions, starting with our heart beating faster, making the blood flow faster to wherever it is needed. Along with adrenaline, the body releases other hormones that flow faster through the blood vessels thanks to adrenaline, some of them being the hormone of happiness - serotonin and the natural pain-reliever, the hormone endorphin. This heady mix of hormones is what makes these activities worthwhile to the so called adrenaline junkies. They are willing to get into some really risky situations in order to feel the high again and again. We can see them climbing rocks, climbing buildings, jumping off of aircrafts and lately - falling from skywalks in China.

A funny video has emerged of an overexcited man walking on a skywalk at Chongqing Wansheng Ordovician Theme Park in southwest China. Moments later, overwhelmed with emotion, this man misses one step and falls between the steps. Scary!

Footage, shot on November 5, shows a Chinese tourist tied to a safety rope walking on a 150-metre-high skywalk and boasting, "I am a man! I am superb! I am happy" in Chinese language of course. Even for those of us who don’t understand Chinese, it is pretty clear that this man is very excited to have the honor to walk on the high skywalk!

However, he loses his footing and falls off the skywalk, slipping in between two steps, before he once again says: "I am very superb."

This both funny and scary video of a man undergoing a sudden fright when he falls in the abyss, being caught by the safety ropes attached on his body, is the perfect example that theme parks can give us the adrenaline of a lifetime.

This adventurous man got caught in the moment and somehow slipped on the steps. It is very curious how he managed to miss the step when they are so wide, but maybe it was his excitement that got him going and the words that he said kept him from falling down.

What would you do if this kind of accident were to happen to you when visiting a themed park? Would you be scared for life or will this unfortunate event give you the courage to try scarier adventure parks?
