Toxic Plants in the Alnwick Garden

When the Duchess of Northumberland Jane Percy turned out to be the heir to the English house of Alnwick, she came up with the idea to make the gardens truly special. Henceforth, a poisonous garden is accessible to all visitors of the castle territory. Despite the fact that tourists are at a relatively safe distance from plants and cannot touch them, fainting from toxic fumes has been recorded among visitors. The collection of the garden has more than 100 species of growing narcotic varieties. Tactile contact with most of the exhibits causes burns, cramps, and even death. Today, the garden is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the land of Foggy Albion.

The “Pearl of the Pacific” since the middle of the 20th century has been attracting tourists with its mild climate, snow-white beaches, and magnificent palm trees. However, today the growing level of crime and drug trafficking in Mexico repels wealthy guests. In 2013 alone, there were about 200 murders within the city, and later six women were raped during their vacation. Permanent robbery and abduction are regular practice in the area. In short, a romantic night on the beaches of Acapulco is a bad idea.

Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is a place of pilgrimage for millions of tourists from all over the world. The park is rich in geysers and geothermal objects and that is why it is so dangerous. In 2016, here, during one night, a tourist, who decided to turn off the path, was dissolved completely in an acid lake. Among the other things, the reserve has an amazingly beautiful volcano with tons of molten hot magma ready to explode at any time.

A truly extreme adventure is offered by the Australian park Crocosaurus Cove. Tourists are lowered into a transparent structure made of plastic in a pool five meters deep, which is filled with crocodiles. The reservoir is designed for one or two people, and the attraction lasts about 20 minutes. Under the water, reptiles delight aquanauts with sudden bites and attacks on a floating cube. The creators of the aquarium guarantee complete safety but when you’re fully immersed you get lots of adrenaline.

Trift Bridge

Switzerland, mountains, and the highest suspension bridge in Europe perfectly describe a walk over Lake Trift. From an almost 200-meter bridge, located above the lake at an altitude of 100 m, you can see an incredible view of the snow-capped Alps. The width of the structure is only 1 m, and in a strong wind or a snow storm, the outcome of such a trip can be fatal. In this regard, you are allowed to walk here only in good weather. In 2009, the rope details were replaced with steel cables but still not everyone dares to walk on the bridge.
