What You'll Get
Unlike competitive diving, synchronized eating, and sky wrestling, skydiving is not an Olympic sport. Enjoy un-judged thrills with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a tandem skydiving jump from Start Skydiving (a $259 value). This Groupon is valid at Start Skydiving's location in Middletown, Ohio.
Start Skydiving's tandem jumps pair thrill seekers with veteran skydiving instructors, who guide them through an exhilarating free fall and scenic parachute ride down to earth. After a roomy twin-turbine aircraft lifts diving duos to an altitude of 10,500 feet, jumpers who are thoroughly harnessed to a parachute-equipped professional leap out into the blue. For about 50 seconds, divers reach speeds of up to 130 miles per hour and experience the earth's unbridled gravitational power, ripping through the troposphere like a science teacher ripping apart an inaccurate drawing of the troposphere. The divemaster then pulls the parachute cord, slowing the fall to a leisurely four-minute glide over the area, complete with a breathtaking bird's-eye view.

About 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.
