DETROIT, Mich. (www.incnow.tv) -- It's an extreme kind of experience called Extreme Kidnapping and it's been in metro Detroit for over a decade.

Imagine paying someone hundreds of dollars to kidnap you. It sounds unusual but lots of people are doing it. It's called Extreme Kidnapping and the owner says he can barely keep up with the demand.

Here's how it works: you talk to a man beforehand and let him know the type of kidnapping you want. You can tell him if you want to be threatened or slapped or even tasered. They don't just do that on their own.

The company offers different packages depending on what you want. For $500 they'll kidnap you for four hours or you can spend at least $1,000 for deluxe packages that can last an entire day.

Their clients? Mostly thrill seekers, adrenaline junkies and people who like new experiences. But they do have repeat clients and over the years they've gotten some pretty weird suggestions such as barbecuing a person over a roasting stick complete with real flames and butter sauce for basting, which they turned down.

The company isn't doing anything illegal because clients provide consent, but police are concerned about people witnessing these "fake" kidnappings.
