I had an amazing time here for my first jump. Some people reviewing complain about having to wait but they can't control the weather. My first jump got cancelled because it was to windy. I came back the next day and was able to get up fairly quick. The instructors were very good and made me feel very comfortable. The... More

Wow, check that off the bucket list. My daughter bought it for me as a birthday gift and I couldn't wait to do it. The experience is fantastic, the view is fantastic, the dive instructor {Kenny} was equally the same. I highly recommend it for the cost especially if you can get a groupon. My only issue is the wait... More

I surprised my boyfriend for his 29th birthday, and we could not have had a better experience. This was my first jump. Jennifer at the desk was amazing. I decided last minute (at the 5 minute warning) that I wanted to purchase the video package for my boyfriend, and Jennifer was more than accommodating and quickly asked the videographer (Jonathan)...

I purchased the groupon for my husband and I to do our first tandem skydive. It was a 30th bday present to my husband because skydiving has always been on his bucket list. The people there were great! They cracked joke with us to make us feel more comfortable and less nervous. My husband had Kenny and I had Pip.... More

First time sky diving and an experience that we will never forget. We arrived 20mins prior to our time slot, filled out all the paperwork, met our tandem jump partners, all fantastic friendly guys who totally put us at ease laughing and joking. Quick briefing as to what would happen, harnessed up and we were off. Words cannot describe how... More

This place is amazing! The facility is clean, and can accommodate small and large parties. I took my girlfriend skydiving for her birthday, and I will never forget this experience. Both of us were first timers, and the staff could have not been more welcoming, courteous and professional. All instructors have thousands and thousands of experienced jumps, and really know...
