From hundreds of feet in the air to diving into the depths of Beaver Lake, Sean Bailey took viewers all over with the Adventure Arkansas segment this year. It's time to relive some of the best moments in the last Adventure Arkansas of 2015.

This year has had a variety of adventures and featured incredible people doing amazing things in Arkansan's own backyard. It's time to take a look back at all the fun 5NEWS had and which ones viewers clicked on the most.

For starters, Arkansans loved playing in the water in 2015. The 6th most viewed adventure is when Melissa and Sean hovered over Beaver Lake on futuristic Flyboards.

Melissa Hall says, "It was surreal. The feeling of flying by yourself, it's unexplainable. It's really cool."

Of course while Sean and Melissa were content hovering 10 feet up, Ryan Cauly, owner of Beaver Lake Flyboarding, took it up quite a notch!

The 5th most popular adventure is a simple tour of some swimming holes in Arkansas. From Wreck Hole to Bluff Hole in Mulberry and to the beauty of Natural Dam, Arkansas has its share of swim spots.

Beaver Lake hosted 5NEWS eight times this year for Adventures, from kayaking and snorkeling to even a submarine. The most viewed adventure at Beaver Lake was a hike Melissa and Sean did while they searched for the Lost Bridge. There are five miles of trails that take hikers back in time to when early settlers lived among the bluffs.

Number 3 on the list is when Sean Bailey watched Arkansas water interact with gravity. While Hemmed in Hollow is the tallest waterfall, the High Bank Twin Falls' 70 feet of height hidden near Cass got the most clicks by viewers.

In second place of the most viewed adventures, and yet another hidden gem,  is the Crack in the Rock trail near Van Buren. Its geographic features and stunning scenery fascinated viewers to click on the story 3,000 times!

Finally, flipping into first place with over 4,000 views was the adventure at High Rise Trampoline Park in Rogers! This new jumping heaven opened up almost a year ago and has everything from dodge-ball to basketball and even a brand new Ninja course!

5NEWS has planned many more adventures for 2016. Don't miss out on them!

5NEWS gives a special thank you to our sponsor and co-adventurers over at Adventure Subaru in Fayetteville.
