What You'll Get
The need to feel the wind in your hair is best fulfilled by skydiving, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Get properly windblown with this Groupon.
$145 for First Jump Static Line Skydiving Course ($235 Value)
After a certified instructor covers the fundamentals of safety and skydiving basics in a six-hour training course, students ascend to an altitude of 3,000 feet. They'll then vault from planes completely by themselves, as their chutes open automatically with the help of a static line that connects their backpack directly to the airplane. They'll descend through the air solo for approximately five minutes, navigating their easy-to-maneuver parachutes back toward the airport as instructors on the ground coach them through headsets in their helmets. Visitors also receive a Central Maine Skydiving T-shirt upon the completion of their jumps (a $15 value).
