Unlike competitive diving, synchronized eating, and sky wrestling, skydiving is not an Olympic sport. Enjoy unjudged thrills with this Groupon: for $119, you get a tandem skydiving jump with a professional from Start Skydiving in Middletown (up to a $259 value).

Tandem jumps pair thrill-seekers with veteran skydiving instructors, who lend expertise and a sense of security to exhilarating free falls and scenic parachute rides down to earth. After an aircraft lifts diving duos to 10,500 feet above the tallest caterpillars, jumpers—who are thoroughly harnessed to a parachute-equipped professional—leap out into the blue. Divers experience the earth's unbridled gravitational power while ripping through the troposphere, an experience that lasts about 50 seconds, or the time it takes a science teacher to rip apart an inaccurate drawing of the troposphere. The dive master then pulls the parachute cord, slowing the fall to a leisurely four-minute glide over the area.

Start Skydiving

Start Skydiving owes its ranking as the number-one skydiving location on 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.
