It's fun to feel a little scared every once in a while, which is why people watch horror movies or hire an accountant who works out of an old sedan. Feel a rush with this Groupon.
$139 for a Four-Hour Sunset Tour with a 30-Minute Jet Pack Flight ($279 Value)
After boarding Aqua-Jet’s boat at Miami Beach Marina, riders enjoy a scenic ride past Star Island to the center of the bay. There, guests hop into the water to play with provided paddleboards, inflatable beds, and other water toys before instructors give 15-minute introductory lessons on the main event: the jet pack flight. After a brief on safety, riders get strapped into a Jetlev jet pack and are free to let loose, launching themselves up to 30 feet above the water. Everyone take turns playing with the jet packs until the end of the four-hour excursion, when glasses of champagne and soft drinks are passed out and the boat heads back to the marina.
Over the ocean, a mechanism whirs into gear and 1,000 gallons of water start to rush through the jetpack lifting the wearer up toward the sky. Though that experience might sound like a scene from an action movie or the last barbecue you attended, it’s at the heart of Aqua-Jet Miami’s regular outings. Trained by Jetlev Academy, Aqua-Jet’s instructors provide thorough yet brief safety instructions to riders before they take flight strapped to jetpacks and flyboards. Once in control, riders can reach breath-taking heights while they fly above the ocean and take in scenic views of downtown. These flight experiences are also coupled with sunrise and sunset boat tours, which provide ample time for guests to frolic as they wait their turn to fly in the jetpack.
