DENVER (CBS4) -- There's a fun new way to get a jolt of energy and test your skills at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. It's a new exhibit called "Extreme Sports: Beyond Human Limits." The exhibit is really a lot like an obstacle course, said CBS4 reporter Jacqueline Quynh.

"Go inside the minds and bodies of extreme athletes to explore the psychology of their motivations and learn about the science behind some of the riskier sports, such as wingsuit flying, ice and rock climbing, parkour, free diving, and much more," the museum website states.
