  • Sportations
    Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.

  • Minneapolis Skydive
    Safety and excitement go hand-in-hand at Minneapolis Skydive, where experienced instructors guide thrill-seekers on adrenaline-filled leaps through the sky. First-timers are paired with one of these professionals for a tandem jump. After an instructional video and a Q&A session, guests board the plane, get strapped to their instructor's four-point harness, and leap into the sky. They'll move at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour during a 40–60-second free fall; then, once the parachute hatches from its cocoon, skydivers enjoy a 5–7-minute float to the ground. Videographers are available to capture the entire flight on camera, and the video can be delivered digitally. Minneapolis Skydiving Adventures also offers programs for advanced skydivers to become licensed and participate in solo jumps.

    Cross Country Soaring owner Don Ingraham brings more than 4,000 airborne hours of experience to his sailplanes' controls, maneuvering the engineless crafts through the air with bird-like agility. Tow planes loft each passenger flight airborne, sending planes thousands of feet up into the sky before leaving pilots and their guests gliding through the atmosphere without the noisy distraction of a typical flight. Each flight is different—sailplanes may gain altitude in thermal updrafts before bottoming out stomachs with daring dives. Picnic tables and couches cluster around the hangar, giving friends and family a comfortable place to watch soaring flights. Students eager to earn their own glider rating and fly solo can take advantage of Cross Country Soaring's experienced instructors, learning the ropes under the hawk-like eyes of seasoned pros.
