Young meets folks who are experts at things like downhill snow kayaking at top speeds in Colorado, to high-lining (walking on a one inch band of webbing) across 400 ft. deep canyons in the Utah desert. After learning about what they do, and getting a little training, Young attempts to complete the adrenaline-fueled challenges on his own. In between scenes, trivia questions about various activities are posed to audiences.
Is It Any Good?
No Limits showcases the wide variety of bold, daring, and just plan crazy ways people across the country are satisfying their need for adrenaline rushes. Adding interest to the show are the different locations Young travels to, which range from Nevada to Puerto Rico, and feature an array of interesting natural landscapes and habitats.
