GREAT TEAM!! That's what they are there, a team, not staff! A few of the team asked me who my instructor was. I said exactly that.. I had a team, Dennis Bracco was my instructor/my confidence booster, the voice on the inside letting me know I was going to be just fine, Johnathon was my motivator, Taylor was my "skydive... More

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.
