The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a tandem sky dive (up to a $219 value) from Colorado SkySports at Boulder Municipal Airport. With the closest drop zone to the Denver area, Colorado Skysports sends thrill-seekers zipping 10,000 feet through the air above the naturally gorgeous Rockies. First-time jumpers can rest assured they are soaring safely as they will be strapped to the back of a USPA-certified instructor with stale, interconnected twizzlers. Usually requiring only an hour or less of training, tandem jumping is the safest and quickest way to get novices in the air.
