Double takes are common on the shores of Lake Havasu. After all, it’s not every day that you see someone hovering 29 feet above the water. The subjects aren’t paranormal apparitions, and the scene isn’t a fleeting haunting—it’s just another day for the certified flight instructors at Water Jetpack Adventure: strap customers into the five-point quick-release harness of their Jetlev R200 recreational jetpacks for gravity-defying flying sessions that include flight demos. Assembled from top-of-the-line parts and materials—such as pressure seals made with O-ring systems found on deep-sea submarines—the jetpack features a built-in stability mechanism and a multitasking hose that powers flights with pressurized water and keeps pilots attached to the boat and away from Icarus' house parties. Pilots stay protected during midair jaunts with safety equipment including a personal flotation device, a helmet and head support, and a safety saddle.

The Pirate Cove Resort & Marina grants families, groups, and thrill seekers a year-round fix for the adventure itch. A lineup of four heart-jolting attractions populate the resort's grounds, including the giant Bosun Swing, which oscillates riders gently above the Colorado River, granting picturesque views of mountains in the distance. Standing eight stories high, the Plank Walk plunks adventurers 80 feet to a soft, sandy landing, and the Rum Runner, a motorized zipline, whisks riders through the air at 50 mph, or the same speed as Superman's groggy shamble to the bathroom in the morning. The resort's latest addition, the Pirates Quest zipline tour, consists of five ziplines that run as long as 1,300 feet, supplying explorers an adrenaline-infused vista of the land.
