The staff are very professional! The owner has been there working every time I've jumped which tells me that he really cares about his business. I won't jump with anyone else.

What You'll Get


For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a tandem skydive jump from Westside Skydivers in Winsted (up to a $230 value).

Westside Skydivers' USPA instructors strap themselves to visitors before they take a thrilling plummet over Minnesota's charming lake scenery. Prospective parachuters learn the ropes of skydiving in a 30-minute orientation, during which expert cloud surfers guide students in skills such as how to pull the ripcord, steer the parachute, and effortlessly land on passing speedboats captained by supermodel spies. Planes then ascend into the clouds while students and instructors strap in to tandem parachutes, hopping into the wide blue yonder when vessels reach 10,000 feet. Jumper and instructor duos then freefall for 45 adrenaline-filled seconds, speeding up to 120 mph as the conjoined twosome gracefully flips and flies. With a pull of the ripcord at 5,500 feet, tandem pairs begin a leisurely five- to seven-minute descent back to the ground, where patrons are presented with a certified logbook and a nondisclosure agreement covering clouds' trade secrets.

About Westside Skydivers


After 13 years as a skydiver, Joseph Johnson leapt into a new mission: to become the first franchised skydiving operation in the country. With two locations in two states under his belt so far, he aims to rise above his competitors by offering distinctive features such as a choice of altitudes (13,000, 18,000, or 24,000 feet) and pre-jump training that equips skydivers with the ability to deploy, steer, and land their own chute, even when they’re flying tandem with a licensed instructor. Planes can carry as many as 17 people in one trip, making it ideal for group outings and airborne performances by jazz orchestras, and helmet cams capture the audio and visuals of the entire flight.
