Kidnap Travel: French Company Offers Adrenaline Junkies Something Different
by Mike Richard | March, 2010
Skydiving, BASE jumping, shark diving and other forms of near-death experience just not getting your adrenaline pumping anymore?
French firm Ultime Réalité is now offering “kidnap packages”. For around 900 Euros, the firm will kidnap you at random, bound and gag you, and incarcarate you for up to 11 hours, depending on the “package” you choose. Yes, really.
Possible add-ons include helicopter chases, “be a drug smuggler for a day”, be buried alive, or … just about anything you can imagine. You’re invited to be creative:
For those searching for the ultimate nightmare, the company is also hoping to branch out beyond kidnappings and is looking into options such as spending a night in a morgue, or attending your own funeral.
The company’s already getting up to two requests per day. I won’t lie – it has a certain intrigue to it. It’s a little like living a video game.
