Skydiving for the first time triggers a host of emotions: giddiness, astonishment, exhilaration, and disappointment in discovering that clouds are actually flavorless. So many emotions with this Groupon.
$159 for a Tandem Skydiving Jump ($245 Value)
Designed with first-time jumpers in mind, the tandem jump lets participants free fall from 7,500 feet up while harnessed to an experienced, USPA-certified instructor. Pairs take to the sky in a PAC 750XL aircraft, designed for maximum safety while skydiving. Tandem skydives are typically scheduled daily through April and May, and on weekdays in June and July.

A skydiver descends toward the earth, his red-and-white parachute contrasting against a picturesque scene of azure sky and the springtime grass. It’s just another day at Skydive Tecumseh, where instructors have been taking first-time jumpers and experienced skydivers on exhilarating freefalls for nearly 50 years. Manning aircrafts such a Cessna Super Caravan, Skydive Tecumseh’s flight team ushers parties 7,500 feet into the clouds for tandem and solo jumps that reach speeds of up to 120 miles per hour, much like a cheetah on roller skates. A drop zone with three separate landing areas awaits skydivers on the ground, and a picnic area allows visitors to watch their friends glide safely back to earth. In addition to organizing jumps, the instructors—all certified through the United States Parachuting Association—operate a ground school, where they help clients earn skydiving licenses.
