They say St. Petersburg is for old people, and they're kinda right, so you at least know they won't be clogging up the lines for new heart-stopping attractions that might actually stop theirs, at TradeWinds Island Grand. Oh, the crazy things you can now do at the beachfront resort that's a quick trip up Florida's left coast:
WaveJets: These battery-operated guys get strapped to stand-up paddleboards, longboards, shortboards, and bodyboards (are you board yet?) to get you moving at close to 10mph, which is actually kinda fast when you're in the water, instead of driving behind a Buick in St. Pete trying to get here.
Bungee Tramp: Not actually a morally loose woman who loves extreme sports, this Tramp lets you get infinitely higher than the kind that your mother wouldn't let you get in your backyard/date, thanks to dual cords attached to giant posts that'll launch you up to 20ft skyward so you can do flips, backflips, and other flips.
Jet Packs & More: Although you've already been informed just how awesome these things are, TradeWinds is the first West Coast spot bold enough to offer JetLevs that'll skyrocket you 30ft up in the air at 30mph, then let you freely maneuver around like a
proud NASA astronaut representing a country that is the world leader in space exploration Russian cosmonaut, a thrill ride that won't be getting old anytime soon.
