What You'll Get
To make the body produce adrenaline, people usually must kick a cop in the chin, juggle soldering irons, or trap wild animals underneath wet newspaper. Today's Groupon gives you a more comfortable way to excite your cellular infrastructure: for $60, you get a 15-minute super-deluxe parasail ride, including a T-shirt and a disposable camera, at North Coast Parasail (a $130 value). Chutes and ships set sail from the docks at Cedar Point Beach, directly behind Cedar Point's Hotel Breakers. This Groupon is good for parasailing and boat transport for one person; observers can ride along for an additional $15 each.
The 15-minute super-deluxe parasail ride, the top ride that North Coast offers, lets the reel run liberally with 800 feet of towline separating riders from the sparkling waters below. From this lofty vantage point, you'll feel the wind tickling your toes and the sun styling your hair while your eyes soak up the views of the surrounding shorelines. Shout decorous swears such as "Whip-pooooor-willlll!" or "Seabiscuit!" at nearby gulls, wave gracefully at beachgoers below, or simply lounge about loosely, enjoying the boat's gentle tow. After you delicately descend to sea level, you'll depart with a slick T-shirt that can easily be repurposed as a smaller, less successful parachute.
Because the laws of physics probably apply to parasailing, riders who weigh less than 100 pounds cannot ride alone and must be accompanied by another person. And, because North Coast Parasail is located within the bounds of Cedar Point, drivers are subject to the $10 parking fee.
