Tourists can blow up cars and shoot rifles in action-packed desert park
Tourists at this high-octane adventure park can channel the likes of Dwayne Johnson – by blowing up cars, crushing SUVs, and firing an arsenal of military-grade weapons.
Adrenaline Mountain, located just outside of Las Vegas, is an ‘extreme entertainment complex’, which promises visitors the opportunity to explore their most violent fantasies.
For $2,000 (£1,543) guests can blow up a commuter vehicle, and for an additional $550 (£424), they can crush its remains with an earth mover.
High-calibre sniper rifles and powerful explosives can be used to completely obliterate cars including Honda Civics, Nissan Maximas, and any other vehicles the crew can get their hands on.
‘I think the sniper experience is my favorite thing we offer here,’ said Adrenaline Mountain’s owner Eric Brashear, 56.
‘One of the coolest things is to sit behind a scope with minimal instruction and put a piece of lead 500 yards onto an eight-inch target.
‘Hitting something from that far is pretty gratifying.’
Customers hoping to get some movie-worthy action will need to purchase powerful explosives if they want to blow up a car as a sniper rifle isn’t enough to destroy it.
‘We let our guests mix the explosives themselves,’ added Eric.
‘We use Tannerite exploding targets, which are a combination of aluminum powder and ammonium nitrate.
‘Guests mix their own exploding targets and then place them just inside the door of the car.
‘We have a couple of mechanics we work with. We buy old cars that aren’t worth repairing, strip them, and take the flammable stuff out.’
After placing their explosives, guests assume their position, train their rifles on their target, and fire.
Once a car has been blown to smithereens, the techs at Adrenaline Mountain move it to a different area of the desert.
From there, the skeletal remains of the vehicles wait to be crushed by guests who signed up for a different experience – smashing them with an excavator.
As well as the firearms-based activities, Adrenaline Mountain offers monster truck drives, axe throwing, archery, off-road dune buggy experiences, and overnight camping.
Eric added: ‘We actually started off as a shooting range back in 2012.
‘When we closed down for the pandemic, we thought “let’s go all in”.
‘We added a ton of additional attractions. As soon as we open back up we hope we’ll be fully rocking and rolling.
‘We also offer camping so people don’t have to cram all their activities into one day.
‘The desert at night is just so striking.
‘It gives people something different than what they get when they’re on the strip.’
Eric and his team hope to have Adrenaline Mountain fully operational by 1 December.
