Start Skydiving - Middletown: $119 Tandem Jump with Start Skydiving (Up to $259 Value)

The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's deal: for $119, you get to go on a tandem jump with one of the trained instructors from Start Skydiving (a $259 value on weekends and holidays and a $239 value on weekdays), which is based at the Middletown Regional Airport, about a 105-minute drive from Columbus. Start Skydiving is currently open six days a week (every day except Tuesday) and will remain open on Saturdays and Sundays through the winter, weather permitting. Plan on spending up to six hours at Start Skydiving on the day of your jump.

Tandem skydiving is a great way for amateur thrill-seekers to get their inexperienced feet wet with something other than nervous sweat. Today's Groupon grants you the exciting skydiving experience with the security of having a trained instructor strapped to your back. And the experts at Start Skydiving are trained up to their nose-holes; certified by the United States Parachute Association, they also train year-round for formation skydiving with Team Fastrax. Before you actually take the plunge, your rendezvous with Start Skydiving will begin with up to 45 minutes of basic tandem-jumping instruction. The jump itself happens from a height of about 10,500 feet, after which you free fall for 50 seconds. Alight on the soft, springy earth below after four minutes of falling under the protective canopy of an oversized parachute built for two humans or one fortunate pachyderm.

Start Skydiving's commitment to safety helps anxious divers ease into the loving embrace of the harness. People who skydive say the feeling of pure freedom is unparalleled, the adrenaline rush is addictive, and facing their fears is a satisfying way to prove themselves to high-school bullies, old flames, and former accountants.

Start Skydiving

Start Skydiving owes its ranking as the number-one skydiving location on dropzone.com to its staff of master skydivers, pilots, and instructors. The team navigates its aircraft thousands of feet in the air for tandem or AFF solo skydives, and the jumpers help novices in obtaining their own USPA B, C, or D licenses. Newly inducted divers can gear up with Start Skydiving’s online store, which carries everything from altimeters and flight-specific shirts to tickets for rides on hot-air balloons or twin-engine pterodactyls.

It was soooo much fun. I would absolutely do it again.

I got this for my son - and he LOVED it! While far out and a challenge to find, it was a great experience from the people to the instruction to the experience itself.
