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 $125, you get a tandem skydive from Skydive Midwest (up to a $209 value). Divers must be 18 or older and weigh 250 pounds or less to plunge from the Sturtevant drop zone, a 30-minute drive south of Milwaukee. Jumps are available seven days a week. Though Skydive Midwest can accommodate up to 50 jumpers per day, reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance.

Skydive Midwest's staff is full of adrenaline addicts. Each staff fall pro has completed an average of 4,000 jumps and is licensed by the United States Parachute Association. Prior to soaring above the private, closed airspace, you'll receive a half-hour briefing on the jump process and landing technique. Then, you and your fellow skynauts will take to the 14,500-foot-high skies in the King Air turboprop. When the door opens, it's nothing but sky.

Depending on the day's viscosity of the air and the presence of cottony clouds, you'll free fall for up to a minute, whooping like a fool the entire way, snugly secured to your instructor. The gentle tug of the chute switches you from rush to awe as you drift slowly down to earth while admiring the magisterial flatness and the skyline of Milwaukee. A tandem jump is an easy way to experience skydiving for the first, second, or 204th time. Removed from the pressure of pulling your shoot and managing your falling form, you'll be able to simply enjoy the thrill of being strapped to a shirtless skydiving surfer with lust for life and tendency to spout opaque, zen-like platitudes.

Skydive Midwest

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.
