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.
Skydiving Charleston provides its customers with a bird's-eye view of the South Carolina landscape, assuming that the bird is free falling toward the ground at 120 miles per hour. This free fall begins anywhere between 10,000 and 14,000 above the ground. Skydivers leap from the plane, savoring the adrenaline rush before deploying the parachute and gently gliding back down to the grass.
Safety is always a priority at Skydiving Charleston, which is why the company meticulously maintains every piece of equipment and only hires instructors with extensive jumping experience. In addition to providing exhilarating tandem jumps, the staff can offer to document the experience from preparation to landing, offering customers video, photographs, or commissioned oil paintings to purchase afterward.
There's no denying the natural beauty of South Carolina?especially when you're floating 10,000 feet above it, unable to string together a complete sentence between your screams. Though this may seem like an extraordinary circumstance, it's just another day at work for the professional instructors at South Carolina Skydiving, who strap themselves to first-time skydivers and jump out of planes high above Charleston and Myrtle Beach.
But don't worry: before all that happens, beginners are given full briefings with tutorials on how to maintain proper form. In fact, for people who make a living by free-falling to earth, these guys are as risk-averse as it gets. They impose strict weight limits, work only with high-grade equipment, and refuse to skydive when lions are present.
With their combined powers of subconscious suggestion, Rich and Elizabeth Wylde captivate their volunteers and delight their audiences during comedic hypnosis shows. At each performance, 12?20 volunteers take a seat onstage, where they are lulled into a peaceful trance. At the Mild show, these participants may find themselves joining the Russian ballet, forgetting their names, or turning into a celebrity. The Fusion show rides the line between mild and wild, while a mild show might involve someone talking to their belly-button. The Wild show presents the most personal situations of all?someone might be made to believe that he is the first man in the world to give birth.
Positioned in the heart of a triangular expanse with Charleston, Myrtle Beach, and Columbia at each point, the Andrews Airport serves as the departure site for Skydive Georgetown's freefalling adventures. Experienced skydivers latch themselves and their parachutes to patrons, and, when the soaring aircraft reaches the peak of its trajectory, both plummet into the open atmosphere. Adrenaline junkies hurtle toward the earth at up to 120 miles per hour while staffers commemorate the journey with videos or photos.
