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 $159, you get one tandem skydiving session from Sportations (up to a $299.99 value). Because this Groupon may be used at any Sportations location, the value of this Groupon reflects pricing at all locations.
Sportations, one of the largest adventure-sports providers in the United States, gives air-ready revelers a new way to view Pittsburgh with tandem skydiving. Altitude seekers will be briefed on jump safety for approximately 30 minutes before flying to a dizzying altitude. With a certified professional skydiving instructor and state-of-the-art 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 Sportations location in Pittsburgh schedules dives on Saturdays and Sundays from March through October. Reservations are required in advance.
The staff at Sportations prides itself 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 earth-bound journey while you contemplate why ants look so much like humans when viewed from above.
Although Sportations sometimes offers online discounts, this Groupon is valid for 12 months after the feature date and at any Sportations location across the country, therefore making it a better deal.
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.
