Harnessing the technology to fly indicates intellectual advancement and power, which is why every U.S. president before the Wright brothers was a bald eagle. Take to the skies and build political influence with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $120 worth of adventure-sports outings from Sportations.
Sportations, one of the largest adventure-sports providers in the United States, jump-starts adrenaline glands with extreme activities that range from flying in a helicopter to zooming down a track in a dragster. Sportations amasses reputable extreme-sports providers from all over the country in one place to send air-ready revelers on tandem skydiving ventures at more than 10,000 feet above ground ($249+), or let hot air balloon passengers ($209.99+) snag bits of cloud to see if they’re really made of marshmallow. Forest canopies resemble green carpets as zip-line tours sling harnessed gallivanters down wires at altitudes between 20–80 feet ($59.99+). Helicopter tours provide birds'-eye views of sights such as the mansions of Newport ($84.99) or the beaches of Panama City ($49.99). Professional, safety-trained instructors guide daredevils in paragliding at nearly 1,500 feet ($169.99+), and neophyte aviators take to the cockpit ($199.99+), tickling the sky in small aircrafts that range from a vintage military warbird to a saddled pterodactyl.
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.
