The need to "feel the wind in your hair" is best fulfilled by skydiving, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Feel the rush with this Groupon.
$36 for an Earn Your Wings package with a Commemorative DVD (Up to a $79.90 Value)
This package gets Groupon-holders two 1-minute flights in the tunnel, with all flight gear and training included. Two flights—the time equivalent of three tandem skydives—allow plenty of time to practice an MJ--tribute moonwalk, rid the dust from gaming cartridges or pop the question to a significant other. The DVD lets fliers relive tricks and maneuvers for years to come, and a personalized flight certificate gets 2.5 hours of free valet parking. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
iFLY SF Bay
iFLY simulates skydiving without plummeting toward the earth at 9.8 meters per second by floating patrons in a vertical wind tunnel. Unlike an amusement-park ride, simulator, or a jump off a one-story house, the vertical wind tunnel re-creates the experience of actual flying, with professional instructors controlling the airflow the entire time and communicating with fliers via hand signals. iFLY’s cache of earplugs, flight suits, helmets, and goggles keep divers protected during flight. iFLY plans flights for groups of all sizes and occasions including birthdays, corporate events, and summer camps.
First, the staff is very courteous, fun and organized. The facility is clean and there were a lot of parents, families and kids there.Rochelle P., Yelp, 4/11/12
