Before the Wright brothers, the only way to experience the miracle of human flight was to dress a horse as Pegasus and ride it headlong into a tornado. Take to the skies safely with this Groupon.
$165 for One Tandem Skydiving Jump (Up to $299.99 Value)
Harnessed to a skydiving master, fledgling aerialists soar from 10,000 feet while taking in scenic views.
Though Sportations sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.
