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. Feel the rush with this Groupon.
$42 for an Earn Your Wings package with a Commemorative DVD (Up to a $84.90 Value)
This package gets Groupon-holders two 1-minute flights in the wind tunnel, with airflow hitting speeds up to 120 mph. All flight gear and training is included. Two flights—the time equivalent of three tandem skydives—allow plenty of time to practice holding your breath or pop the question to a significant other. The DVD lets fliers relive tricks and maneuvers for years to come. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.

At iFLY, "indoor flying" means something way cooler than jumping on your bed at home. There are helmets involved. Here's how it works: you show up, suit up, and go through an orientation lesson with expert instructors before lifting off in an air column powered by giant fans. The column is forceful enough to simulate the experience of freefalling through the sky, even though flyers are just a few feet off the ground. As with outdoor skydiving, the freefall experience lasts for about a minute but with the earn your wings package flyers get two flights, and may be able to execute turns and tricks at the instructor's discretion.
