Skydiving is a thrill our ancient ancestors weren’t able to enjoy, mostly because the pterodactyl would rarely let go. Soar safely amongst the clouds with this Groupon.
- $135 to go skydiving with a Groupon employee ($458 Value)
You and a mystery Groupon companion will board a plane and ascend high above the earth in preparation for your respective plummets back down to the ground—secured, of course, to the expert bodies of Skydive Midwest’s trained skydiving instructors to ensure your safety. Before you jump out of the plane, everyone will have the option to high-five each other and yell “Groupon’s fifth birthday!” As you hurtle through the wild blue yonder, take a moment to ponder the fun things you’ve done in the preceding five years thanks to Groupon’s amazing local deals before turning your attention to all the fun things that lie ahead of you now that Groupon has 1,000s of deals you can search every day. Once you land safely back on earth, you and the Groupon employee will embrace in celebration of terra firma, and you will be presented with a green Groupon tracksuit to commemorate your time as an up-high high-fiver.
Skydive Midwest's U.S. Parachute Association–certified instructors have completed an average of more than 4,000 skydives each. The instructors' ample explorations of gravity and comprehensive training sessions, which are held onsite, help them to securely guide thrill-seekers during tandem jumps, solo jumps, and bouts of spontaneous levitation. Skydivers leap from a sleek and speedy DeHavilland Twin Otter jump ship, which boasts a glitzy new paint job, lightweight bench seating for 23 people, and the ability to climb to 14,500 feet in only 18 minutes.
