Skydiving is a great way to convince your friends you're brave, as is removing that mattress tag with one confident snip. Show some chutzpah with this Groupon.
- $115 for a tandem skydive ($210 value)
To prepare for tandem jumps, skydivers receive some ground training before they are attached to their instructor. After flying to the appropriate height in a Cessna, tandem jumpers leap out of the plane and free fall with their instructor. Skydiving Land can even take a video of the experience.
At Skydiving Land, first-time skydivers don't need to worry about parachutes and jump timing—they dive strapped to certified instructors, who expertly handle all those technicalities. Newbies only need to attend a streamlined ground-training session before boarding their designated flight at the center, which is located at a private airport. While they're in free fall, adventurers can mug for Skydiving Land's staff skydivers, who document dives through video or abstract canvas paintings.
