Decades ago, tourism is limited to hanging out in the beach, or literally “touring” around a place you’ve never been. But now tourism gets more physical, more involving, and more exhilarating.
Storm Chasing Tourism
Storm Chasing Tourism is still considered a relatively small market by comparing the influx of tourists, but it was gaining popularity. I, for one, was culling my date for which I will sign up for it.
Tourists pay a storm chasing company to experience a close encounter with the tornados. Of course, the company will provide experts in the field and necessary equipment but there is no warrant of safety. It is for that reason tourists have to sign up for a consent form before getting to the action.
Although there is no guarantee that the team will spot a storm, it just increases the pleasure of the actual rendezvous with the storm.
Paranormal has been my interest ever since I remember of existing. I have watched numerous scary movies and listened to sleep-depriving horror stories. What do I get out of it? The experience of being scared. Yes, people seek that.
Paranormal tourism is simply checking into a haunted hotel, house, or any place to feel the thrill of the unseen. These things are unexplained satisfyingly but people desire to extend their experiences to beyond the physical.
Which tourism are you more likely to pay for?
