Try These 20 Extreme Things To Do When You Are Rich
Being rich isn’t always what it is cracked up to be, sure you have a ton of money and you can do pretty much anything within reason; but what if you are a little more of an extrovert and you can’t find anything doing that’s worthwhile? Sometimes it can be boring at the top and you need something to take away the stresses of the business world so that you are fresh for the battle when you get back. However sometimes you don’t feel as though you are doing enough in real life and you can get extremely bored; not a good thing. Lucky for you then, that you have enough money to do everything you have imagined about and more.
These 20 things to do for the rich are to help those of you that just can’t find anything to do in your spare time; hopefully there are enough items here to replace some of your time spent being bored at the office. Maybe these things will help you to feel the adrenalin pumping through your body in a bid to feel more alive. Whatever your thoughts on the activities below, I hope you give at least a couple a try for the sake of your own sanity and to help you feel alive once more.
#1 Join The Mile High Club On A Private Jet
Who wouldn’t like to have their own private jet to take them wherever they wish, anywhere in the world and very short notice? Want a trip to Europe? No problem. Fancy have a bit of a flurry at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas? Consider it done! How about taking your new love interest to a romantic night in Venice? You got it. You see, one of the best things about having money and the ability to charter your own plane to anywhere you wish is an exclusive privilege that only the super-rich can really afford. You could even hire a team of glamorous models or strippers to be the cabin crew for your flights, how does that sound? Liking it so far? Well how about using your chartered jet to get yourself into the mile high club? It’s completely feasible; If you own a plane you can do whatever you want in the cabin (within reason). So if you are super-rich and reading this; you have your own jet but you’re not sure of what to do with it this weekend, why not charter it somewhere hot and join the mile high club.

#2 Travel To Space Via The Virgin Galactic
Whether you are a Star Wars, Star Trek or Buck Rogers fan, the chances are that you all have one thing in common; you would love to travel to outer space, and who wouldn’t! Many of us have dreamed about flying high above the Earth’s atmosphere and traveling into the great unknown. Well if you are one of these people then your luck may be about to change; if you are super-rich, you will soon have the ability to become a galactic space tourist through Richard Branson’s newest venture – The Virgin Galactic, this amazing leap in travel is allowing space travel a reality to those who are wealthy enough to afford it. Prices for the Galactic are said to cost $200,000 and to secure your seat you will need to pay a whopping $20,000 deposit (10% of the overall cost). In all honesty this is something very viable to the super-wealthy people of the world, to many this amount of money is a drop in the ocean compared to their own private wealth so there is going to be no shortage of people ready to jump on board. If you love the idea of space travel and you have the money in the bank why not jump into warp-speed and head on over to the Virgin Galactic.

#3 Start Your Own Formula One Racing Team
This may seem a little far-fetched, but it isn’t in the slightest, well not for those of you that are filthy rich anyway. Ross Brawn did this just two seasons ago and has now sold it on to the Mercedes GP Petronas group for a cool profit, so not only can this be done, it can also be a lucrative business opportunity as well as a thrilling motor-sport to become involved with. Formula One Racing is one of the more high-end sports that you can compete within, in the entire world. The cars themselves cost millions of dollars to build and have tested, and then there is the team behind the car and the driver; the list goes on and there is a lot of money that is to change hands if you want to get into this game but make no mistakes, if you are a top class competitor you can really take home the gold for your trophy cabinets. If you love trophies and showing the world you can be the best at anything then this may be something for you. If however you are not this rich, then you could always join the amateur rally club, or maybe the stock car racing scene!

#4 Buy Your Way Into Premiership Football
Yes again this is something that would have been thought as a deranged notion a few years back, but fast forward to the modern-day and it seems that all of the super-rich entrepreneurs and business men and women of the world are buying into the most popular sport in the world – Football. If you fancy your chances as a director of one of the worlds leading football clubs you are going to have to spend a lot of dollars and you are going to want to be part of the elusive Premiership League in the UK. Just look at Chelsea F.C, they were once a great team that fought till the very end of each game but always managed to come up a little short; each season they would be overshadowed by the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool F.C. However that is not the case now; ever since Roman Abramovich has been in power at Chelsea F.C the multi-billionaire has brought the team into a world-class behemoth which are almost unstoppable at times; and when they are snapping up all of the worlds best players for hundreds of millions of pounds, it’s not hard to see why. If you are rich enough to do a “Roman Abramovich” then you may want to start saving those pennies, this game is a beautiful game but it’s not cheap.

#5 Have Your Own Sky Scraper Or Tower Built
This is something that a lot of high-powered businessmen and women crave, the chance to have their very own ‘Trump Towers’ This is more about having a sky scraper or large building built not only for them but for their business and it is not something that impossible, in fact it’s far from it. Donald Trump has many buildings which he owns, many are hotels, some are more personal and private, so the dream of having your own tower is not impossible at all. It will however take a lot of planning, a lot of money and a lot of man-power, but nonetheless this is an achievable feat that you can accomplish should you desire to follow this path. This is once again only for the super-rich, as is the rest of this list but I wanted to add this one because it is something business people and entrepreneurs crave for, a place of their own which is well-known, something that is a pillar of recognition for their ability to excel in whatever it is they do to make the money they have earned over their working years. In short – if you own a sky scraper of your own then you know you have made it.

#6 Stay For A Week In A Penthouse Suite In Las Vegas
If you have ever visited Las Vegas you will know just how expensive it can be to stay there, so imagine staying in one of the best hotels in the world, in the penthouse suite! The penthouse suites are notorious for being out-of-this-world in terms of luxuries, plus they are some of the most expensive places to stay in the world. These rooms are really only for those who are very rich, it costs more to stay in one of these rooms than it costs for a month’s rent in a large house, that’s how expensive they are. Of course, with this expense you do get perks, you have the best views in the city, you have access to everything you want in the hotel (and more) and you are treated like a god by the staff during your stay. This is something I think everyone would love to have a taste of but unfortunately, unless you are making 5-6 figures a month, it is going to be very difficult to stay at one of these amazing locations. That being said, if you are adamant you want to stay in the penthouse for your stag weekend, I’m sure you could manage to afford a nights stay there, if you save up enough over the year that is!

#7 Take Your Car To The Worlds Most Expensive Car Wash
If you have paid thousands on purchasing a car the last thing you are going to want to do is take it to the local BP Petrol Station and have it washed by the automatic car wash; right? I mean who would put such a beautiful car through the pressures of getting washed and waxed by a mechanical device that washes clapped out old Volkswagon’s on a daily basis? No one that’s who. If you have an expensive car you are going to need an expensive detailing service and there is nothing in the world like the service your car will receive from Elite Detailing. Gurcharn Sahota, the owner of Elite Detailing charges £7,200 for each car wash; but before you think it’s stupid money to pay for a car wash let me enlighten you on what he does. Gurcharn spends up to two weeks per car detailing every millimeter, he uses a forensic microscope to find areas of minute scratches and defects and gets them out using special methods, he then uses an organic wax which is worth £8,000 per tub. So if you are feeling the urge to have your car detailed and you have the money; take it to Elite Detailing and have it looking like it was just driven from the showroom.

#8 Start Your Own Hotel And Casino In Las Vegas
One step up from actually spending the week in a penthouse of one of the finest hotels in the world; is to actually own one yourself. If you have the money to do it and the planning permission to boot, then you are going to be able to start your very own hotel and casino business. Sure this is one hell of a competitive market but then nothing worth having is easy right? This really is for the super-rich many people would need an entire organisation to start such a business but there are people in the world who have so much money they really don’t know what to do with it! Well if you are struggling for ideas then this one should hit a sweet note with you for sure. I can’t begin to imagine the cost of starting up a hotel and casino in Las Vegas, especially in this day and age, when inflation on prices and materials has hit an all-time high; but if you are passionate enough, entrepreneurial enough and a little bit crazy, you may just be able to pull this off and become the owner of the newest casino in Las vegas!

#9 Build Your Own Theme Park
How cool would this one be? Imagine having your very own theme park, it would be amazing, you could go on any of the rides for free (not that it would matter about money if you are that rich), you could open the theme park up at any time of the day or night, how amazing would that be! Having your own theme park would certainly come with a lot of perks but more importantly it would also be a long-term investment so you would also be making a rather savvy business decision too. Just think of the money you could make charging people to enter the theme park, this would be a fun investment indeed. Again you would have to be either part of an organization or a very wealthy person to be able to do this but it is doable. There would be major costs involved in the construction of such an idea, you’d need land, an architect, a construction team, a team of individuals who specialize in roller-coasters and rides; the list would go on and on but for those of you who are clued up in the leisure and entertainment sector, this could be a real winner. As well as being an extreme business purchase!

#10 Become A Secret Millionaire
Becoming a secret millionaire is a pretty big task and it involves helping others so ethically and morally you will be on to a winner. The decision of helping others is a responsibility everyone should take upon themselves but the richer you are the easier it is to help those that need it the most. Being a secret millionaire basically means that you go to those who need the money and the help and you act as if you are simply a man or woman straight off the street; you simply need to act as though you earn the same minimum wage as everyone else does and not let on to anybody about your personal life and how much money you actually possess. Then once you have worked out whether someone deserves your help, guidance and money you can out yourself as actually being a fairly powerful person; and that you have decided to help them by giving them a donation or some help of some sort. This idea has become fairly popular lately thanks to a UK television show by the same name (‘Secret Millionaire’) and has been seen as a very positive thing here in Britain. So if you feel inclined to give back to the community but you are not sure who to give it to, then become your own secret millionaire and see if you can change the lives of those around you!

#11 Go On A First Class Around-The-World-Trip
This is for anyone that has ever wanted to travel the world in style, and I don’t mean traveling the world over a period of years either. I’m talking about flying around-the-world to every single country in the world you have ever wanted to visit and even some you have never even thought about. Traveling around-the-world for the super-rich comes with a few perks though; traveling aboard a luxury aircraft in a first class capacity. Flying first class is every airline passengers dream- come-true; think of the leg room, the personal service, the exquisite food and top-notch champagne on ice. First class travel is definitely the way to go if you can afford it, but why stop there? Why stop there indeed, you have your first class air ticket, you have a list of destinations you are about to travel to over the next few weeks so why not make it a three-for-three and stay at the most expensive and luxurious hotel in every place that you travel to!

#12 Go Heli-Skiing
Skiing is within reach of many people nowadays, although at one time this sub-zero past-time was seen as a holiday for only the richest of people. However, if you are wealthy enough you can take your skiing holiday a step further and become a little more extreme with your adventure, how? By Heli-Skiing, that’s how! Heli-Skiing is basically an extreme form of skiing, the difference between the two being that you travel to the peak of your desired slope and literally jump out of a helicopter to add a lot more momentum to your journey down the mountain. This is an amazing way to try skiing first-hand and you will not forget the thrill of both climbing to your desired height as well as thrusting yourself out of the still-moving Helicopter. You could by rights go one step further and attempt to parachute from a plane, ski’s attached, and hit the slope that way; although I’m not sure if this is even possible or if it is something best left for the likes of the James Bond stuntmen? Whichever way you look at it, Heli-Skiing is an adrenalin pumping experience that is for those who love heights and speed!

#13 Buy And Fly A Real Jet-Pack
No this is not some crazy notion stemming from watching a few too many science fiction and action based films. You really do have the chance to have and use your own personal Jet-Pack although they are not quite the same as those you saw on ‘The Jetsons’ when you were growing up. These Jet-Packs really can take you to infinity and beyond but to get there you first have to travel to around 14,000 feet to really get the benefits of these massively expensive fireworks with wings! The idea of flying via a jet based personal vehicle has been the dream of many scientists over the past 50 or so years but now it seems this industry is really coming to life thanks to a few enthusiasts that are creating their very own jet powered packs. So if you have worked hard and earned enough pennies, you too may be able to join the ranks of Jet-Pack pilot by either hiring the technical staff to build your own or simply buy one from these enthusiasts. At the end of the day, if you are just a big kid with lots of money and you want to fly then go and do this, you will not regret it.

#14 Try Out Rally Car Driving Down A Mountainside
When I first heard about this I thought it was a hoax, seriously! I mean yes I have heard and even seen rally cars driving on ice and snow, but up and down the side of a mountain? No way! This is about as extreme as you can get with a rally car I would have thought and I honestly think it would be an amazing experience, although I would be slightly worried about any sheer drops around the mountainside! Traveling on the snow you can reach some really amazing speed especially when traveling in a downwards fashion (okay that is a little obvious but it’s very cool). Snow Rallying – in a nutshell consists of having a rally car flown to the desired slopes via helicopter; once there you can speed up and down the mountainside, going over all manner of jumps, turns and spins at some serious speeds. The idea of doing this is just incredible and I would love to try it myself; In terms of cost, I can’t give a definite number, I can’t even really estimate it as it is so lucrative, but off the top of my head I would have to say that this is going to be something that only very wealthy people can manage to pull off.

#15 Travel Italy By Ferrari
The ultimate way to travel around the beautiful country of Italy is of course by Ferrari; a car manufacturer that everyone knows about. Ferrari are one of the most expensive car makers in the world and their lavish designs and extravagant attention to detail are easily noticed by fans and enthusiasts alike. Traveling around Italy would be a great experience in itself but renting (or even buying if you are that well-off) a beautiful Ferrari in the classic red paint tones which we all know and love, would be a dream-come-true. Imagine the looks from onlookers, imagine the roar of the engine as you travel around the winding roads of Italy; just think about the feeling of power, freedom and the sense of really being alive you would get from driving through the open roads of Italy, one of the most beautiful places in the world, in one of the country’s most expensive and stunning vehicles. Traveling through Italy in a Ferrari, if you can afford it – do it; but don’t forget to take some choice photographs too!

#16 Take A Ride In A Fighter Jet Top-Gun Style
This is something for you budding aircraft pilots, this is for anyone that grew up watching such films as Top Gun and Iron Eagle and dreamed of how awesome it would be to fly one of the most advanced flying aircraft’s in the world! Imagine training with some of the worlds best pilots, being shown the correct emergency procedures and the flight path you will be taking; then climbing into the cockpit of one of the worlds fastest aircraft. This is really amazing and not out of reach at all, prices start from around $2500 for a short flight (although prices can dramatically increase depending on the location, length of flight and the aircraft you choose to fly in). The most common Jet that you may fly in is an L-39 Training Jet, this is a plane used by the worlds best pilots as they train to become experts in flight. Once you have done the necessary training for your flight you are then taken up in the air, performing barrel rolls, turbulent spins, loop-the-loops and lightning fast turns and the speed of around 500kph. Whilst flying through these amazing stunts, your body will be thrown around like a rag doll as you are pushed to the limits of 5.5G’s of force. This really is something for those of you that are not terrified of heights, but if you are up for it; it is well worth the money!

#17 Hire An Island Of Your Very Own For A Week
This is no longer just a dream , although for many it will remain just that; however for those of you with the ability to afford such luxuries you will not be disappointed with this item. Necker Island is owned by the British entrepreneur Richard Branson and is yours for personal and exclusive hire should you choose to a holiday out of the public eye. Branson bought the island in 1979 after having his first “low-ball” bid of £100,000 rejected; however he later bought the island for a reported £180,000 after the owner, Lord Cobham came into money problems and needed fast cash. Since buying the unpopulated island, Branson has turned it into his own private getaway and now hires it out to the super-rich when they need to have a vacation away from prying eyes. For the price you pay to have the island exclusively for yourself and your party, you will receive a full team of staff which will come to your every beck and call; as well as having the island completely at your disposal with no other guests apart from those you choose yourself. Yes this is a lavish plae to stay and the prices are not for the squeamish but if you are super-rich you can afford this little piece of heaven.

#18 Travel In Zero Gravity
Traveling into space is soon to become a reality but if you cannot wait that long then why not get a taste of what you could potentially have for yourself by going into a state of zero gravity! Traveling at zero gravity does not come cheap although it is a lot less expensive than the suggested price tag for being a passenger on the Virgin Galactic’s maiden voyage into the inner realms of space. Zero gravity flight is not a new experience it has been around for a few years now, but it is mainly out of reach for those of the population on the average wage package. This is unfortunate really as the experience is out of this world – almost literally. If you will, imagine traveling in a high powered aircraft up to an astonishing height until you are literally thrust back down towards earth at remarkable speeds, this is what it takes to gain the simulation of zero gravity. So what does it feel like? Well, simply put; nothing. It feels like nothing on this earth, you are free to move around almost in a slow motion effect as you hurtle towards the earth. You have no indication of weight or size and the experience of floating really allows you rto think you are flying without wings. This is something that everyone should have the chance to do, but they really don’t. So if you are wealthy enough and you love the idea of floating around in a tin-can at lightning fast speeds then you should go and experience this amazing sensation.

#19 Stay At The Poseidon Under-Water Hotel
Although this hotel is yet to be finalized and constructed, the reality of the Poseidon Hotel is very real and it will be available to you in the very near future, but what is it I hear you ask! The Poseidon Hotel is an amazingly constructed and beautifully architectural piece of history in the making, or in short it is a hotel which sits beneath the ocean. That’s correct, you read that last sentence right, this is an under water hotel, currently there are no other places on earth quite like this one and it will be a remarkable piece of art once it is complete. Now before you think it sounds a little bland, let me make this clear – the hotel is under water but you are free to walk the hotel as if you were on land. There will not be any water (apart from drinking water of course) on board the Poseidon Hotel, to enter the building you will have to go through a series of pressure locks so that the hotel is kept dry inside. This means there will be no need for scuba diving gear or any other breathing apparatus, you will be able to stare out of the windows and look out to the great blue, the wild life and the ocean floor from the comfort of your very own bedroom. The prices so far, have not been finalised but needless to say this is something that only the wealthy will be able to experience. So if you have dreams of living in Atlantis, it’s safe to say that this is as close as you will ever get.

#20 Become Red Bull Extreme Air Racing
Okay this one is a little more tricky than the others but it is still doable if you have the wealth, ability and the nerve to pull it off. First of all you will need to get a lot of flying hours underneath you so that you actually have the ability to fly solo, next you will need to go on to advanced training and learn how to fly, pretty much, like a fighter jet pilot and finally you will need to buy your own plane and submit a desire to join the Extreme Air Team. This is for the top-guns, the best of the best, there is no room for error so if you have high hopes but a weak stomach then unfortunately this really is not for you at all. It will take a lot of time, a lot of concentration and a lot of skill to pull this one-off; but then, if you didn’t have the makings of a true leader you wouldn’t already be as wealthy as you are right? Seriously, this is a doable task although it is certainly something that will take up most of your time for a few years before you are even close to competing. However if you can stay at it and you have the special gift, you too could one day compete in one of the worlds most terrifying and dangerous sports in the history of flight. Try this at your peril!
