$149 Tandem Jump from Skydive Dallas (Up to $229 Value) in Whitewright, Texas

The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a tandem jump from Skydive Dallas in Whitewright, Texas, about 190 miles south of downtown Oklahoma City (up to a $229 value).

Your bulging basic tandem package includes classroom instruction, gear rental, and a shiny first-jump Certificate of Extremeatude, Cum Laude. From the private, closed drop zone in Whitewright, the sky is clear for unbelievable views of impossible flatness. As you plunge from up to 13,500 feet in the air, safely tethered to an expert instructor, you'll experience during the one minute of freefall what Wilber Wright called a "perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost, bra." People who skydive say the feeling of pure freedom is unparalleled, the adrenaline rush is addictive, and facing one's fears is satisfying. For frequently asked questions, see here.

Owners Lee and Carol Schlichtemeier fell head over heels for the sport after taking their first jumps in 1989. Their fleet includes a Super Caravan, a Cessna Skylane 182, and the world’s most beloved twin-engine skydiving aircraft, the Millennium Falcon. Skydiving is the most thrilling way to celebrate a birthday, to sweat out premarital terror for a bachelor or bachelorette party, or to take a glorious leap into retirement. Buy a few Groupons as gifts and learn to skydive with people you trust; buy a few more and learn to dive with some people you're highly suspicious of while some friends you trust watch them. Either way, you only live once.

Though Skydive Dallas sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

    Heather: Terrible class. Don't waste your hard-earned money. You have no one-on-one time and the teacher goes on for most of the class about unrelated stories, lots are family anecdotes and wastes of time.

    Wendy: I bought this deal 6 months ago. I loved the earrings and had many complements on them. I recently lost one and I've been trying to get this deal again! Next time I will buy 3 pair just to have as a back up!

    Rac: WARNING I have done yoga for 5 years and decided to try this new place and never had a such unprofessional yoga teacher. Where do I start? Let's just say besides sexually harassing students while "correcting them," he also made derogatory homosexual comments, used foul language, and criticized students. He made comments like "What? Wer'e you abused as a child?!" And other comments so inappropriate...

    Jb: This is a scam. I registered my 5 year old for winter futsal last season. The company cancelled the class due to low volume, and despite promises to return the money, they have refused to do so. It's been 4 months now, and all it's been is one excuse (and bounced check!) after another. Buyer beware!
