Harley your way down Route 66: Motorcycles are among boys' most favoured toys and there's no better rush than having the power and speed of a classic Harley within your grasp. Combine that with a ride down one of the US' most famous stretches of road, Route 66, and call it adrenaline heaven. For a unique and exhilarating experience, gents can look into participating in organised group tours or simply rent a Harley and create their own race. One thing is guaranteed -- this is sure to be the best ride of your life. Your journey begins from Chicago with flights from £428 return.

Ridin' the Rodeo: While the Rodeo is not for the faint hearted, it's certainly a unique rush like no other. Cowboys are the epitome of the manly man, galloping across prairies, defeating enemies, lassoing wild bulls and acting as protectors. The Rodeo puts courage and skill to the test like a real cowboy, but it's also a lot of fun! So, for those who dreamt of being a cowboy when they were little and are feeling up to the challenge, head to the very heart of Rodeo in Dallas and check out the bull riding schools of some former Rodeo professionals. Those who can stay on for eight seconds are granted professional status, but, be warned, you're in for a hard landing. Flights to Dallas from £439 return.

Bend it like Beckham, for real: While football may seem tame in comparison to the Rodeo and riding a Harley down Route 66, the unique experience of a football training camp can be just as exhilarating, particularly for those who go mad for the sport. Camps are available in some of the most football notorious cities around the world, such as Barcelona. The tours include real professional training with coaches from FC Barcelona in the original training sites such as Nou Camp, which offers a training match with a local team and tickets to a major league event! The excitement of being on professional turf, playing then watching a live game is not to be missed. Flights to Barcelona from just £54 return.

Sniper for a day: Give your dad the gift of living out a scene from his favourite sniper film where he stars as the hero, or villain, depending on the film! Requiring absolute accuracy and nerves of steel, snipers have a very hard job. Anyone who has ever experienced the excitement of winning a toy for their sweetheart by playing at the shooting booth in an amusement park is sure to find sniper training in the UK sheer elation. Check out the "Be Sniper for a Day" opportunity at WMS Firearms Training in Wales. Established by SAS hero Andy McNab, this promises to offer a flavour of professional training and an authentic experience that is truly unique to the world of elite snipers and fighters.

Formula 1 driver for a day: Take a walk, or a drive, in the shoes of a Formula 1 professional for a day. The knowledge that you're behind the wheel of the ultimate driving machine, which only 24 men in this world have qualified to drive, is exhilarating on its own. Couple that with actually taking a spin in it and you're in speed thrill heaven. Fans of watching high-performance cars whizz their way around a race track as the engine noise blows their eardrums should check out AGS Formula. Set up by a former Formula 1 driver, Paul Richard HITT and his racing team, and nestled upon one of Europe's sunniest tracks in Luc en Provence, this hands-on racing destination will put dad and his driving skills to the test.
