Let’s face it: real skydiving can be a pain in the neck. It’s expensive, you have to sit through a long and boring instructional class on safety, you have to jump with some “professional” (someone) strapped to your back. The result is only the limited excitement of throwing yourself from a plane with your Bachelor pal. Instead, save time and cash and go to Universal Studios and simulate the experience of skydiving indoors without the possibility of going splat (or a dad named Hal opening the chute just when you’re brave enough to open your eyes). A gigantic fan blasts you into the air as you float about the room, helmet and pads protecting you, without the slightest possibility of Hal attempting to yank your cord.

Venue Tip: 

Do not stay to see Universal Studios. You’ve got better things to do with your buddies than see the facade of the house from Psycho (again).

The Good: 
Indoor skydiving, where there is no chance the Bachelor will get hurt and have a wildly enraged bride-to-be stalk every member of the party. The worst that can happen is you lose your lunch and permanently look like the guy from the Maxell commercial.
The Bad: 
Does this really count as “sowing the Bachelor’s wild oats”? Probably not. There’s a bit of a wussie factor with indoor skydiving. But, hey, you have the rest of the day to go drag racing or pop a few off at the shooting range.

Best way to get there: Rental car.

Time of day to go: Around lunch time when the crowds at Universal Studios are busy consuming large amounts of fried food.
