What You'll Get
Before Zeus found a convenient portal that took him from his Mount Olympus throne to his private vineyard in Athens, his preferred method of descent was the jack-knifed skydive. Experience the chariot of Grecian gods with today's deal: for $99, you get a tandem jump with a professional jumper from 10,000 feet from Skydive Hollister (a $169 value). The drop zone is about an hour from the heart of San Jose at the Hollister Airport. You may apply this Groupon toward upgrades and pay the difference. This Groupon is valid during the week and on weekends.
While spring flowers dramatically burst from the ground once a year, skydivers usurp daisies and tulips by dramatically bounding from the cloud tops. Each Skydive Hollister staff member has earned the highest ratings from the United States Parachute Association, and all crew members have a minimum of 1,000 jumps under their wind-resistant belts. Extremely safe equipment accompanies proper training instruction before boarding the Cessna for the nearly two-mile climb. Upon reaching jump altitude, divers leap from the plane for 20–30 seconds of freefall while confidently connected to their tandem master. Speeds reach upwards of 120 miles per hour before the parachute is pulled, signaling the start of a picturesque float to earth that lasts a few minutes.
A graduated skydiver lives with an expanded perspective of the ground and greater appreciation for the infinitude of California's vertical horizons. The entire experience is borderline comparable to escaping Plato's Allegory of the Cave, as the one-of-a-kind aeronautic adventure opens up a new world of augmented reality. Call ahead to schedule your jump.
Must be at least 18 and sign a waiver. Skydive Hollister has a weight limit of 300 lbs. This Groupon is not valid with other discounts.

- I am proud to call this my home drop zone. The staff is young and charismatic, the funjumpers are a close-nit [sic] group of people, and the weather is your best friend. – clencion, Dropzone.com
- I was kinda sad when it was over, and can see how quickly one can become addicted to skydiving. It is such an amazing experience. – C R., Yelp
