The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to slow his fall. Emulate his airborne ingenuity with today's Groupon: for $899, you get a 24,000-foot tandem-skydive jump (a $1,799 value) from Westside Skydivers in Winsted, Minnesota.

The capable tutelage of Westside Skydivers assuages the worries of nervous nose-divers as they take a scenic leap over Winsted Lake with sterling views of Lake Minnetonka whistling past their ears. In a tandem jump, a must for first-timers, the novice skydiver is connected via a harness to an instructor for a safe and thrilling diving debut. Before the flight commences, rookies partake in a preflight class where amateur aeronauts are guided through the jump. Free fall, pulling the ripcord, piloting the canopy, and navigating a comfy landing are all well rehearsed before flight. More than doubling the altitude of a regular skydive, the extreme high-altitude tandem skydive lifts sky swans up to 24,000 feet in the air before jovially hurling them from the plane to free fall for up to two minutes, giving them just enough time to speed-sing "Free Fallin'."

After a decade as safety and training advisor of Skydive Twin Cities, Jumpin' Joe Johnson created Westside Skydivers to share his gravity addiction with like-minded free spirits. High-altitude jumps take place daily, but appointments must be made in advance, as a limited number of slots are available.

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.
