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. Meet your breeze quota with today's Groupon: for $155, you get a tandem jump at Triangle Skydiving Center (up to a $235 value).
Huddled in Triangle Skydiving Center's speedy Super Otter aircraft, tandem jumpers ascend to 13,500 feet before leaping into the stratosphere. After making their harrowing exit from the plane, skydivers plummet through the sky like Formula One raindrops at around 120 mph before their securely attached USPA-certified instructor pulls the parachute-release cord, prompting a slower descent. Drifting slowly toward the ground during the next five–six minutes, divers then get a chance to marvel at the skyscraping clouds, panoramic earth views, and runaway Thanksgiving Day–parade balloons, as the parachute's pilot scouts a choice landing spot. Skydives are held year-round from sunup to sunset, affording spectacular vistas of the sun as it glimmers through the atmosphere at the outskirts of the day.
