Skydive Central New York - Cato: $149 for a Tandem Skydive at Skydive Central New York ($249 Value)

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 $149, you get a tandem skydive at Skydive Central New York at Whitford Airport in Weedsport (a $249 value).

The USPA-qualified instructors at Skydive Central New York turn their extensive jumping experience to easing first-timers into a full-on assault on gravity. Before the tandem dive, thrill seekers learn how to jump safely from the airplane, position their bodies during freefall, and pull the ripcord to release the parachute. Once the plane reaches as high as 10,000 feet, you and a human backpack leap from the airborne prison into a freedom more exhilarating than staying up late on a school night. After a face-flapping 120 mph freefall, parachutes lovingly lower gliders through a vertiginous skyscape, offering a bird's eye view of Lake Ontario and the Finger Lakes region.

The entire process takes anywhere from two to four hours. Each sky-savvy instructor has logged at least 4,000 jumps and more than 8,000 in-air double fist bumps, and aspiring cloud kickers can count their first tandem jump toward a future skydiving license.
