I just recently did a jump where another skydiver and I docked, and each "fruitlooped" each other. Basically after you grab hands and dock, one of you goes into a sit or stand and flings the other person over top of you. It went great, was a lot of fun, and we did it fast enough to get two docks, two fruitfloops, and some back flying before 5 grand. It was one of the best dives I've done, and I'm wondering if there any other really cool things two or three skydivers can try on their belly for some fun!

Lot's of stuff. Keep in mind that all the flipping and back flying adds up to a ton of fall rate changes. If you do that with 3 people, you might not be able to keep an eye on both of the other jumpers at all times. Loss of eye contact combined with flipping and fall rate changes can add up to some wicked mid-air collisions.
Two-ways are a snap. Look at the other person, and don't run into them. Adding one more person makes it exponentially harder to keep track of 'everyone' else on the jump. Just something to think about when you get another jumper looking to get in on your 2-way.
Around the world dive--turn 90 (dock), turn back to center (dock), turn 180 dock, back to center dock, 270 dock, center dock, 360. This works best w/ one person just laying base but you can alternate turns if you want to.
Things me and some buddies did at a boogie the other day:
Hybrid: 3way flat, and one goes into sit/stand, holding onto chest straps. Variables of this.
Cartwheel out the door.
Horny Gorilla: Go out 2/3way flat, all together swing in and hook feet. You can now let your hands go, and start a spin.
One thing that I have not tried yet, but seriously going to do: Build a tracking train. It is gonna be nose into bum type of thing, but we wanna be at least 3people in a track position, in a straight line, holding on to each other.
