Until the bird dominion surrenders its feather technology, ambulatory humans will have to repurpose water vessels for airborne thrills. Soar above the sea sans foolish wax wings with today's Groupon: for $125, you get the Deluxe Parasailing Flight & Photo package from Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre (a $232 value, including tax), located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort (you do not need to be a resort guest to use this deal). Fliers must be at least 6 years old. The combined weight of the riders must be at least 130 lbs and no more than 330 lbs. This Groupon is not valid on September 4–6.
Parasailing at Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre offers the opportunity to serenely hover in the sky and enjoy a sensational bird's-eye view of Orlando and the Walt Disney World Resort. You and a friend will be securely harnessed to your parachute and then towed into the air by a CWS boat, lifting you up to 600 feet above the marina for a 10–12 minute sky-jaunt (a $195 value, plus tax). Each boat is checked daily, and Sammy Duvall's Coast Guard-certified captains will ensure a safe yet adrenaline-packed experience. While you swim with the birds, the crew will snap about 20 digital pictures that you'll receive in a memory card ($25), giving you a solid excuse for missing jury duty.
Waterskiing world champion Sammy Duvall has handpicked the instructors and supplied reliable, high-quality watercraft equipment. The Centre has perfected its parasailing service to the point that guests likely won't even get wet, unless bratty seagulls spray parasailors with their Super Soakers. Call to schedule your reservation.
This Groupon is not valid with any other offers. Fliers under 18 must have an adult present to sign a waiver.

Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre
Six-time world champion. Number one in the world. Dishwasher safe. All of these phrases have been used to describe prolific water-skier Sammy Duvall. At his self-titled watersports center, Mr. Duvall helps visitors discover the aquatic activities that have defined his life. Piloting speedboats, his staff pulls tubers, wakeboarders, and water-skiers across Bay Lake. A parasail, emblazoned with a smiley-face design, elevates tandem riders over views of Florida's natural terrain and nearby theme parks. The water sport experts also lead jet-ski tours through Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon.
