Some scientists theorize that human beings evolved to spend time near water, citing our hairlessness, our ability to hold our breath, and our continual invention of newer and better water wings. Show how evolved you are with this Groupon.
$99 for a 25-Minute Rocketman Experience ($200 Value)
Literal rocket packs, propelled by jets of water, send their passengers soaring in controlled flights over the calm surface of rivers and bays. Guests get 25 minutes to enjoy the ride, and can control the force of the jets to scoot along under water or burst forth and soar above the ripples.
As it turns out, the futuristic vision of flying men conceived of in the pages of comic books is possible thanks to a simple 250-horsepower engine and some water. Those specs describe the clever, gravity-defying contraptions that give the company Rocketman its name. Trainers strap adventurers into self-stabilizing packs that are propelled by two jet streams of water. They then teach their charges the basics of controlling the packs, and unleash them to play and fly over the waters of the ocean, river, or bay. The packs can easily lift passengers up to 30 feet above the surface of the water, providing stunning views, an unparalleled sense of freedom, and a great way to retrieve your stolen sunglasses from a seagull.
