The need to feel the wind in your hair is best fulfilled by skydiving, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Get your daily dose of drafts with this Groupon.
$169 for a Tandem Skydive with a Photo Slideshow ($339 Value)
One hour of instruction precedes a 45- to 60-second freefall as students descend toward terra firma while strapped to their instructor in a tandem-parachute system. Personnel subsequently assemble photographs snapped throughout training and landing into a DVD slideshow.
Cleveland Skydiving Center
Securely fastened into a tandem-parachute system, an instructor and a pupil tumble from a Skylane Cessna 182, a floating sensation running through their bodies for the 45- to 60-second plummet. Back on solid ground, a 25-acre drop zone reunites divers post-free-fall, and in the distance, Cleveland Skydiving Center's pilots shuttle other divers skyward in a fleet of aircrafts that includes a King Air, which can ascend 13,500 feet in 15 minutes. The on-ground personnel photograph all tandem and instruction-assisted-free-fall dives, converting their footage into professionally edited DVDs of stills and screensavers for skydiving-prone laptops.
