A shuttle ride or tube ride is one of the most exciting aquatic activities. Continue reading if you want to know what is a shuttle ride? And what makes it so exhilarating?
The Shuttle or Tube Ride
It is a type of large inflatable tube that can be ridden by single or multiple people and is pulled in the water with the help of a boat. The shuttles are connected to fast boats by a rope and hit the water. The higher the speed of the boat, the more this inflatable tube shakes in the water and the more excitement and pleasure people experience.
Those who are looking for an adrenaline rush should definitely try the shuttle ride. Because it is not known how much the speed of the boat increases when they board the shuttle; They may even fall into the water while the boat is being turned around. Of course, there is no need to worry because all safety issues are observed and everyone is wearing a vest before boarding the shuttle.
Of course, these falls are planned and an important part of the thrill of the shuttle ride is falling into the water. The captain of the speedboat deliberately throws people into the water while going around.
Just buy a ticket and wear a life jacket and helmet for the shuttle ride. After that, you decide for yourself whether you want to wait for a quiet shuttle ride or if you want to go fast and suddenly dive into the coral sea from the boat. If you have strong muscles and a lot of resistance, the captain can’t throw you in the water so easily, and this is where the shuttle ride becomes an exciting challenge. The good news is that men and women can have this fun together in Iran.
Another model of shuttle ride is known as the banana ride. In this model, instead of a tube, an inflatable device similar to a giant banana is used, on which people sit and place their feet on both sides. Of course, in this model of shuttle riding, you need strong legs and muscles to be able to hold yourself on the banana.
The minimum number of people to deal with Shuttle and Banana Kish is 1 person and the maximum number of people is seven people. It should be mentioned that as the number of people who sit on the tube increases, the excitement of the game also decreases, and the fewer the number of people, the more excitement you can experience in Shuttle and Banana Kish.
Of course, it should be said that in addition to exciting entertainment, shuttle riding is also considered a sport because when being pulled by the boat and sudden movements on the surface of the water and twists of the boat, you must be able to cope with the force from waves that will clash with your tube, fight back. You will truly need strong muscles to hold yourself on the tube or you will be thrown into the water.
It is better for physically weak people to request a gentle shuttle ride from the boat captain if they choose the shuttle ride because it may be difficult for them. Shuttle and banana speed tubes are a subset of water tubing sports.
