The room features a terrace and multiple balconies, a high-tech kitchen, and the option for one's own private butler.
Throngs of people young and old gathered, many in full wizard robes, in 100-degree Orlando humidity. The Wizarding World’s much-anticipated expansion, Diagon Alley, was greeted with much sweat and even more tears of happiness when it opened its doors to fans earlier this month.
In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, where the water can be 10,000 feet deep and the waves proportionally enormous, a 22-foot long rowboat equipped with a small cabin and fishing rods, is manned by Riaan Manser and girlfriend Vasti Geldenhuys. A waves comes, flipping the boat with Vasti strapped in, and throwing Riaan into the sea. The vessel somehow rights itself as the tide turns it over in a full 360.
Riaan and Vasti manage to complete over one million strokes, which took them from mainland Africa to New York City. This is real life; no script involved. Their journey lasted just over four months, with 133 days at sea. As Manser proclaims, no two humans have done it before.
Queensland, Australia is riding high this year, especially with their new Canopy Glider, and open-air gondola that cruise over the lush rainforest. Barron Gorge National Park’s Skyrail Rainforest Cableway offers guides to talk you through the flora and fauna below. By being completely uncovered, the ride offers a truly panoramic view of Barron Gorge’s scenic waterfalls and dense forests.
The Canopy Glider departs from Skyrail’s Smithfield Terminal (located 15 minutes north of Cairns) and ends in Kuranda, the ‘Village in the Rainforest.’ The secluded destination has markets ands restaurants, as well as a butterfly sanctuary, an aviary and a koala park. They have two departures daily, so it’s probably wise to book in advance. For more info, visit their website here. And for more ways to see the world from cableway, see our list of World's Coolest Tram Rides.
