Discovery Turbo goes ‘Extreme’ from 29 January
MUMBAI: Infotainment channel Discovery has announced that its ‘just for males’ channel Turbo will take viewers to extreme places across the world in its new series ‘Extreme’. It will air every Thursday at 9 pm from 29 January 2015.
The show will visit the largest pool in the world and give viewers an astronaut-guided tour of a space station. This show will introduce viewers to alligator wrestling, a haunted tattoo parlour and thrill rides. One can also watch meals served by sword by black-clad ninjas, talking toilets and vacation resorts on the sea floor.
The show also visits the biggest, the best and the most over-the-top lodgings. The other episodes in the series include resorts, restaurants, terror-rides, water parks, superstores, mind-blowing hotels, ways to go extreme and many other things.
One can also spend a chilly night in the world’s biggest lodging carved entirely out of ice or book a room in a fully restored Wild West ghost town that doubles as a five-star spa.
An episode ‘Extreme Truck Stops’ will cover the best grub to the only truck stop with parking spaces for a horse. Another episode ‘Extreme Terror Rides’ looks at a speed demon that achieves total weightlessness, freefalls and the upside-down, corkscrewiest coasters allowed by law.
Though everybody’s going green these days, only a few places can claim to be extreme green. In the episode ‘Extreme Places to Go Green’, viewers will be taken to a tree-hugger’s dream vacation to the most innovative, Earth-friendly spots in the USA. From a lavish Hawaiian resort to a mind-blowing museum so green, they put a mountain on the roof. The episode will visit an eatery where alternative energy means that one has to pedal for one’s smoothie.
The show will give viewers an all-access look at ‘Extreme SeaWorld’. This is a journey through Orlando’s three aquatic theme parks: Discovery Cove, Aquatica and the original Seaworld Park. One can have a close encounter with some large and very deadly predators that get viewers way closer than the bleacher seats.
