Most of us in Chicago are familiar with Groupon these days; one great deal a day, usually 50% off or more, on a Chicago area business. Well, Groupon, in connection with Chicagoland Skydiving Center, is offering a pretty daring special.
A Tandem Jump for $120!!!
CKC, located in Hinckley, IL (and the closest Skydiving option to the city of Chicago) is offering a 48% discount on a tandem skydive with a trained instructor (up to a $229 value). A Tandem jump means the novice skydiver (that would be you!) is connected via a harness to an instructor that guides you through the whole jump, from exit through free fall to piloting the canopy and landing. And because they use a special aircraft you have the option to jump WITH YOUR FRIENDS!
So we thought, what a great idea for those daring brides and bridesmaids out there. Going to a bar with boas and shot glasses around your neck is so wimpy! You're taking the plunge with your man, why not take it with your girls.
(And if you're not the 'jump out of an airplane' kind of girl, this would also make a great gift for your future hubby and his best-men!).
