The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to safely indoors with today's Groupon: for $37, you get the Earn Your Wings Package—which includes a training session, flight gear, personalized flight certificate, and assistance from a personal instructor ($59.95)—and two flights in iFly Hollywood's gravity-defying vertical wind-tunnel, plus a DVD of your session ($24.95). This Groupon is not valid on Saturdays.

iFly's technology, which is all-ages friendly, simulates the feeling of skydiving without plummeting toward the earth at 9.8 meters per second. iFly's wind-tunnel simulates skydiving by suspending you only a few feet off the ground sans parachute. This package gets you two flights in the tunnel—the time equivalent of three tandem-skydives—giving you plenty of time to practice your MJ-tribute moonwalk, rid the dust from your gaming cartridge, or pop the question to a significant other or a person who you'd like to make your significant other. The DVD lets you relive your tricks and maneuvers for years to come and your personalized flight certificate gets 2.5 hours of free valet parking. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.

iFLY Hollywood

iFLY Hollywood’s state-of-the-art indoor wind tunnel lets acrophobic and aerophobic adrenaline junkies experience the sensations of skydiving under safe conditions. iFLY Hollywood will suit you up with a helmet, goggles, flight suit, earplugs, and a can of gravity repellent, before an instructor teaches you the basic maneuvers and hand signals. Once you've learned a lesson, you'll be unleashed into the vertical tunnel’s artificial wind current for some air time at terminal velocity. The entire process lasts about an hour, including waiver signing (flyers under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign), a 15-minute class, and a flight slot during which your group takes turns flying. In addition to the flight experience, the multimedia package includes a DVD with a recording of your flight.

Indoor skydiving is accessible to a wide, family-friendly age range, meaning that Grandma and Grandpa can celebrate their 60th anniversary with more than the traditional cake shaped like Andy Griffith. iFLY Hollywood’s free observation deck allows for maximum show-offiness, so invite along an audience of hard-to-impress friends, lovers, and butlers to marvel at your simulated plummet through the heavens.
