America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with this Groupon.
$140 for Tandem Skydiving ($289 Value)
After about one hour of training, skydivers of all experience levels get ready to soar through the air. Certified instructors latch themselves to jumpers in a parachute built for two, which is outfitted with an automatic-deployment safety feature that ensures that each chute opens on time and that no pack is filled with a cartoon anvil. Once the pair step off the plane, they free fall for as long as 60 seconds before comfortably wafting beneath the open parachute for the five- to nine-minute flight back to earth.
In more than 100 locations around the country, ThrillZown's staff facilitates adrenaline-filled excursions full of extreme water, air, and land adventures. Under the supervision of experts, brave souls defy gravity as they skydive, hang-glide, bungee jump, or play films of apples falling off trees in reverse. On land, crews harness the power of horses, stock cars, and snowmobiles; in the water, groups navigate whitewater rapids or explore aquatic depths as they scuba dive or surf.
