Adrenaline Rush: the Science of Risk takes a look at the world of skydiving and base jumping - parachuting from a building, a bridge or a cliff. While providing breathtaking views of skydiving over the Florida Keys, the Mojave Desert and in the magnificent Fjords of Norway, this giant-screen experience explores the psychological and physiological forces behind risk-taking, and the physics involved in these activities. In doing so, it also shows us how risk-taking is part of everyday life. The storyline focuses on two risk-takers, Adrian Nicholas and Katarina Ollikainen. Nicholas, a veteran skydiver who has performed thousands of jumps, is the record holder for the longest unassisted human flight, a 4-minute 55-second flight at speeds of up to 200 kilometers/hour that took place in 1999. Adrenaline Rush even allows spectators to directly experience a base jump thanks to a camera strapped to one of the professional jumpers who took part in the film.

Adrenaline Rush well worth seeing!!!
6 June 2008 | by ariel22665See all my reviews

I disagree with the first comment. I found the film very fascinating and they went into details of DiVinci and his unbelievable knowledge of just about everything. I mean its an IMAX documentary-like show. You can't expect some wicked twist in the story. They state the facts. Period, the end. If you want to learn about things in a cool environment and get that great feeling from a cinema 180, like the old days, this is the place to go. They showed the daring feats of these thrill seekers and how the stunts are performed. There was an actual experiment which proves or disproves an ancient theory about flight. The show was fast, thrilling and worth the 40 minutes out of your life.
