Preparing for a skydive is like going into labor—it’s a little scary, requires the supervision of a professional, and usually ends with one big push. Give birth to courage with this Groupon.
- $100 for a tandem-skydive jump (up to a $229 value)
After a 20-minute training session that helps jumpers learn how to deploy, steer, and land their own parachute, they board a plane that ascends to heights of up to 14,000 feet. Once strapped in with a licensed instructor, jumpers begin a 120-mile-per-hour free fall that lasts for up to two minutes. When the time comes, they pull the ripcord to release the parachute and drift for another five to seven minutes until settling safely down to land. Upon landing, customers receive a logbook that certifies their jump; any jump with Bayou City Skydivers counts toward their AFP certification program.
