We checked in easily, on schedule and watched introductory videos. They will brief you, coach you and make you feel safe. There is plenty of free parking, and a small food kart to take care of your party. I strongly recommend to go all in: we selected the rockstar package since this would include 2 grips on the jump, capturing... More

We went skydiving yesterday and it was awesome! The whole experience went very smoothly and took away most (ha) of my fears! My Tandem jumper, Kyle, was very professional and fun! Brad was great too, who jumped with my husband! Would recommend them 100%! Try it! Its an experience you'll never forget!

First, let me say I was absolutely terrified to do this. My three sisters were doing it, and I didn't want to be left out. I was completely scared and had no real desire to do it. That being said, it was awesome. The staff was very friendly and professional. We got the $90 video and photos as well. Total... More

My wife wanted to celebrate her birthday and check off skydiving on her bucket list. Her tandem skydive was absolutely awesome. She got the video to relive the experience and to email to her friends.. Lets just say she definitely is a senior citizen that enjoyed the skydive. The airport is absolutely tremendous. The facility is extremely professional in appearance... More

We did our first tandem skydive & what an experience!! We had the best time ever. The instructors are awesome, explain everything & you feel totally safe & at ease! I recommend getting a video of yourself as it's fun to go back & look. Highly recommend, what a blast.

Lonnie was my tandem partner and made me feel very safe and wanted me to have as much fun as possible. Definitely get the video package because you get to see yourself be UHmazed! This was definitely a must do for all.

Yesterday myself, my two sons and my niece did our first tandem skydive. Words cannot describe this experience and properly do it justice. From the young ladies doing the paperwork until the end this was a great experience that I recommend to anyone. The staff are very professional and make this a serious and enjoyable experience. We can't wait to... More

An unorganized team took my boyfriend and I two hours later then our scheduled appointment because they "accidentally" took the next group first. Once our jump was completed we watched my video it was the most wasted $85 for them to get mine and the instructors feet falling out of the plane!! I'll NEVER have the picture and video capturing...
