Packing a parachute is not unlike packing a bag lunch: it's a bummer when your mom puts old ham in either one. Taste clouds with today’s Groupon: for $219, you get a World’s Highest VIP Jump package from Skydive Space Center in Titusville (a $369 value). The VIP package includes:
- A 18,000-foot tandem jump
- An aerial tour of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center
- Priority boarding
- Two skydive shirts of your choice
- Framed first-jump certificate
Skydive Space Center harnesses gravity’s pull to thrill jumpers with freefalls reaching more than 120 mph. After basic safety training and instruction, divers board the Beech Craft Turbo King Air 200 to ascend to an 18,000-foot elevation in under eight minutes. While pilots seek an ideal drop spot and the cloud that stole their wallets, chute-strapped voyeurs can drink in exclusive aerial views of NASA airspace and the Kennedy Space Center’s shuttle-launch pad. At 18,000 feet, the worlds' highest tandem jump, jumpers emerge from the aircraft’s belly over Space Coast. First-time sky swimmers can relax and soak up the adrenaline rush while tandem-bound instructors—each laying claim to more than 11,800 lifetime jumps—handle the 90-second freefall, 6–8 minute parachute ride, and mid-air soda refills. Divers can celebrate their return to terra firma with a signed commemorative certificate and two Skydive shirts.
Skydive Space Center
At Skydive Space Center, instructors and their clients soar above the ocean. And yet they don't just take in views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River: every skydiving flight gives you a spectacular view of the Kennedy Space Center, the 52-story vehicle assembly, and the historic shuttle Atlantis, as well as the shuttle launch pads and runways.
Once they've reached the required altitude, instructor-student pairs launch from the plane and into thin air for a pulse-pounding free-fall. In addition to tandem jumps, the center offers an accelerated free-fall program, which includes one-on-one instruction and multiple jumps.
