Packing a parachute is not unlike packing a bag lunch—it's a bummer when your mom puts old ham in either one. Leave packing to the experts with today's Groupon: for $149, you get one tandem skydiving session from Sportations (up to a $259 value on-site or up to a $279.99 value online). Jumps will take place at Skydive Philadelphia.

Sportations, one of the largest adventure-sports providers in the United States, gives air-ready revelers a new way to view Connecticut with tandem skydiving. Altitude seekers will be briefed on jump safety for approximately 30 minutes before flying to a dizzying altitude. With a professional skydiving instructor and equipment strapped to your back for the duration of the gravitational ride, you'll be free to wave to passing birds, take in the view, and grab onto drops of light making their way back home to the sun.

The staff members at Sportations pride themselves on customer service and on amassing extreme-sports providers from all over the country in one place. Allow them to take care of the details of your earthbound journey while you contemplate why ants look so much like humans when viewed from above.

Sportations

Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.

Customer Reviews

Best deal out there!
Russell M. · July 17, 2015
The sky diving experience was phenomenal! The instructors were friendly, informational, very experienced, and fun. The plane was comfortable - padded benches - compared to others I had heard about with only hard metal benches or none at all. I felt completely safe with my instructor...would definitely do it again!

They were very helpful and friendly. They also explained risks and cautions of our hit air ballon ride. Thanks.
