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.
- $109 to go skydiving with a Groupon employee ($249 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 San Diego'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 San Diego
To the uninitiated, the dusty, mountainous expanse just north of the Mexico border might sound like a war-torn battleground—it has borne the boots of soldiers in the US Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. However, the troops simply visited to practice plane evacuations at Skydive San Diego, whose private, skydiving-only airport is buffeted by steady winds and outfitted with state-of-the-art Cessna and DeHavilland jump planes.
Civilians can jump there too, drinking in views of the Pacific before leaping out of an aircraft for solo jumps or tandem dives, in which a USPA-certified instructor is securely attached to the jumper with professional harnesses and a powerful hug. With 8,000 square feet of padded packing area, the full-service facility not only houses an airport but also a deck for barbecuing post-jump feasts.
