The Fire Hoop: Win Or Lose?

Backpackers risking life and limb in the name of entertainment...

The fire hoop.
I've mentioned before on this blog that a popular late night form of entertainment on Haad Rin Sunrise Beach is the fire skipping rope, where drunken backpackers attempt to skip with fire ... not always successfully.

The fire skipping rope isn't the only fire related late night activity that you'll find in Thailand though, and other fire activities include the fire limbo, fire jugglers, flame throwers and a particularly dangerous fire activity ... the fire hoop.

The video below features drunken backpackers attempting to jump through a flaming hoop of fire ... with mixed results.  To make things a bit more interesting though, rather than just edit together a compilation of fire jumps, the clips are instead presented in the form of a quiz...

A clean jump through the hoop is a 'WIN'.  If they hit the sides it's a 'FAIL'.  Watch the video and see if you can guess which is which...

Feel free to leave a comment saying how well you did, and if you're after more fire videos then you can find a fire skipping rope compilation video in the following post:
The Fire Skipping Rope

As you can see from the video, the fire hoop might look like fun, but if you're not careful you can pick up some serious injuries.  Fire and alcohol is a dangerous mix, so always put safety first.

The fire hoop and the fire skipping rope form part of the nightly entertainment on Haad Rin Sunrise Beach.  The 'Haad Rin Guide Book' is available for kindle from Amazon:
