Adventure Fest in IIIT Hyderabad from February 19-21, 2016

Exploreout and Felicity proudly present you a festival like never before.

Come feel the vibe of a festival full of adventures, music and magic. Fly in the skies on a hot air balloon, swing from buildings like a tarzan, thrill for speeds on a zipline and rappel off a vertical wall for the adrenaline rush while enjoying various other events happening all over the campus.

Events:

– Hot air ballooning
– Tarzan Swing
– Ziplining/Flying Fox
– Rappelling

Hot air balloon ride

The hot air balloon is the first successful human-carrying flight technology. A hot air balloon consists of a bag called the envelope that is capable of containing heated air. Suspended beneath is a gondola or wicker basket (in some long-distance or high-altitude balloons, a capsule), which carries passengers and (usually) a source of heat, in most cases an open flame. The heated air inside the envelope makes it buoyant since it has a lower density than the relatively cold air outside the envelope.

Tarzan Swing

Jump off a building top tied to a rope just to swing like a tarzan while everyone is watching you from below. Experience a freefall for about a second.

Zip lining

A zip-line consists of a pulley suspended on a cable, usually made of stainless steel, mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by holding on to, or attaching to, the freely moving pulley. Zip-lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment.

Rappelling

Rappelling, abseiling – whatever you call it, is a technique of descent from vertical faces with the aid of ropes and specialized rappelling equipment. It is the quickest and easiest way to get a taste of mountaineering. Perfect as an introductory adventure, Rappelling also has a psychological application in boosting confidence and courage.Rappelling facilitates an attitude of overcoming challenges. In waterfall rappelling, we rappel down a vertical wall instead of a dry cliff.
