From breathtaking heights to out-of-this-world adventures you can experience below the surface, some of the views in our state (while beautiful) can be a bit terrifying. Ready to see if you’ve got what it takes to make it through this post without feeling queasy? Here are 10 views in New York that are guaranteed to make your palms sweat:
1. Have you ever seen Times Square like this before?
Taken on New Years Eve, a photographer clings tight to his camera as he captures this amazing but terrifying view of New York City!
2. The view from the top of the Olympic Ski Jumps.
Ready to take a trip out to Lake Placid? If you choose to go down this vertically advanced path, you'll be able to soar over powdery snow that's the length of an entire football field.
3. The views from above during an adventure at Skydive the Ranch.
The idea of willingly jumping out of a plane isn't something our residents feel fully thrilled about across the board. While this may be someone's idea of a good time, we're curling up in a ball out of fear!
4. Superman - Ride of Steel.
Well-known for its gut-wrenching rides sought out by New York's adrenaline seekers, the Ride Of Steel at Darien Lake will surely have you holding on tight. Coming in at over 200-feet tall, this ride will make your legs shake!

5. Exploring the underground world of Sellecks Cave.
It's not just New York's great heights you have to be frightened of! Hiding away just below the surface are some of the most terrifying places you'll ever find in New York! Squeezing between narrow passages and ultra tight spaces in these caves is definitely no walk in the park.
6. A brave resident enjoying a unique view of the Shawangunk area.
A favored spot for rock climbing in our state, the Shawangunk Ridge is an area we highly recommend you visiting...but maybe not like this! Luckily there are other ways to get to the top and much more, less terrifying exploring to be done in The Gunks! Consider a climb with High Xposure Adventures if you're feeling brave.
7. Ziplining through New York's greenery.
Our stomach's can't handle this one! Captured at Hunter Mountain, here you can experience some of North America's largest, fastest and highest zipline tours.
