What You'll Get


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 $115, you get a tandem skydive at The Jumping Place in St. Marys, Georgia, a $195 value. Flirt with perceived danger by strapping up to an expert skydiver who’ll stay with you all the way down like a friendly security blanket made of parachutes, experience, and candy-orange slices.

Your heart-pumping journey begins next to St. Marys Airport, where you’ll meet with The Jumping Place’s friendly and experienced instructors and take in two brief training videos plus a tandem-skydiving rundown. You’ll strap a strong tandem harness to your back and ascend to 9,000 feet with the aid of an airplane before you leap into the open air with an instructor handily attached to you. You’ll free fall at 120 miles per hour with the wind flapping at your face and the earth rushing toward you like a giant bear hungry for a hug. After about a minute of unadulterated adrenaline, your parachute will be released and you’ll float for an additional four to six minutes over the spectacular Georgia and Florida coastline, taking in panoramic views of the land, sky, and ocean.

People who are scared of heights expect to be scared stiff by jumping out of an airplane and hurtling through the air, but many of them are surprised to find they're totally comfortable. People who skydive say the feeling of pure freedom is unparalleled, the adrenaline rush is addictive, facing one's fears is satisfying, and falling out of the sky is pretty good. Plus, it isn't likely you'll wet your pants. Gift this Groupon to that pent-up parolee in your life, or make the most of a weekend free of the cubicle cage. Call ahead for a reservation.

Jumpers must sign a release waiver and provide a valid form of identification at the time of their jump.
