What You'll Get
Before adrenaline junkies discovered skydiving, falling from the sky was reserved for raindrops, meteors, and one hapless, immortal coyote. Take a fun plunge with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a tandem skydive from Plymouth Sky Sports in Plymouth (up to $195 value).
Plymouth Sky Sports staffers coach newbies through every step of the tandem-skydiving process, from prelaunch to postlanding. Before embarking on a skyward voyage, parachuting novices attend a half-hour instructional class going through the fundamentals of skydiving, including which direction to fall and which birds are jerks. Certified diving buddies fit each cadet with a safety harness and a full set of jumping gear before ascending two miles skyward, attaching themselves to their students, and launching both bodies into the blue. After a one-minute freefall, the parachute deploys, and students can use their newfound skills to help steer toward the landing target or nearby half-time show.
Newly minted skydiving vets receive a logbook and certificate to commemorate the experience. For an additional charge, a videographer will accompany you on your jump, recording the entire process in HD video.
Although Plymouth Sky Sports is offering a Grand Opening discounted rate online through March and April, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
