When it’s time for another birthday, how will you celebrate? You’ve probably already had plenty of parties and get-togethers with friends. Maybe you’ve even taken a trip to spend your big day on vacation. This year, why not try something new and go skydiving?
5 Reasons to Try Skydiving for Your Birthday
1. Meet New People
Skydiving crews are like family. The pilots and instructors will make you feel right at home as they tell you what to expect and set you up for the best birthday jump ever. You’ll love meeting the team as well as the other people you’ll be jumping with—it takes a certain kind of person to jump out of an airplane, so chances are you’ll make a few friends while you’re up there!
2. Do Something Different
Skip the usual party invitations or last-minute restaurant reservations on the night of your birthday. Your friends will be stoked to go skydiving with you or watch from the ground and cheer you on.
3. Experience an Adrenaline Rush
No feeling compares to leaping out of a plane and free-falling at 120 miles per hour. Even after your tandem partner taps your altimeter and pulls the shoot, you’ll be high on adrenaline as you soar through the air with incredible 360-degree views.
4. Overcome Your Fear
“But I’m afraid of heights!” you tell yourself. Guess what? Plenty of people who skydive were afraid too. But when you’re 14,000 feet above the ground, you won’t even register the height. And when you land, you’ll be so excited to have overcome your fear that you might sign up for another jump right then and there.
5. Create Lasting Memories
You’ll never forget your first skydiving adventure, so do it on your birthday with loved ones at your side. If you jump with a videographer who captures the whole venture on film, you can share clips and photos on social media and relive the moment.
