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 $115, you get a tandem jump from Jump Florida Skydiving Center, which is based at the historical Chalet Suzanne Restaurant & Country Inn in Lake Wales, just 45 minutes south of Disney World (a $199 value).

Tandem skydiving lets novice skysplorers taste test upper altitudes while securely strapped to a professional. All of Jump Florida Skydiving's friendly staff members hold United States Parachute Association (USPA) licenses, delineating the company's commitment to safety, adherence to strict regulations, and allegiance to opposable thumbs. Before hopping aboard a Cessna 205 aircraft on the day of your jump, you'll participate in approximately one hour of ground training. Adjoined at the chest to an unruffled expert and outfitted with state-of-the-art gear, you'll feel as safe as a breakfast sausage on a stegosaur's plate when it comes time for you to take the exhilarating plunge from 11,000 feet up.

Jumpers should come dressed in tennis shoes and comfortable clothing for the weather, and should expect the entire experience to last about three hours. Friends, family members, or pet kiwis can watch with admiration from a huge spectator area as you drift to the ground. While divers can’t document the fall with their own cameras or midflight charcoal sketches, DVD video packages are also available for $75.

Jump Florida Skydiving

Though skydiving is often billed as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, for the staff at Jump Florida Skydiving, it's a job. As they climb above the scenic landscape of Lake Country in a turbine aircraft, they stay calm as excitement radiates off customers—as young as 18 and as old as 79—about to make their first leap. At the ideal altitude, the plane levels off, and jumpers get into position. The sky is amazingly clear around the plane, which takes off from a private airport, so there are no commercial jets or flocks of migrating geese obstructing the airspace. Tandem or solo divers step to the edge, take a deep breath, and experience the thrill of accelerating at 9.81 meters per second per second.

While participants revel in their adrenaline-fueled thrills, the staff keeps them safe by adhering to the strict standards of the United States Parachute Association. These protocols enforce rigorous regulations, safety guidelines, and eminently cool member handshakes. On the ground, the team prioritizes hospitality, offering guest rooms, a restaurant, spectator fields, and a nerve-diffusing bar.

Top notch! Knowledgeable, fun instructors made our first-time 18,000 ft. jump a memorable experience. Enjoyed all the photos and video, too. Just incredible!!! Would do it again and would highly recommend to anyone!

We had a picnic with the kids while my brother and husband went sky diving. The videos were great and the instructors were professional and made them feel safe. Great times!
