So I had bought my boyfriend and I jumps for our anniversary. I did not know what to expect exactly since I had never jumped from an airplane before but I figured that we would be in good hands with the pros.
Day of, we drove to Cedartown from Atlanta which was about an hour and half. We get to the facility which is almost like a huge garage, outfitted with all the equipment and has a porch attached at the rear where spectators can watch the divers fall and float back to the ground.
After signing the waivers and watching a safety video, we were put in queue. We waited for a couple hours until it was our load's turn which gave us time to watch the divers set up their equipment and watch a couple loads jump and float down. There was even a bbq going on for those of us that were hungry while waiting.
When it was our turn, our tandem instructors suited us up and took us to the plane. My boyfriend's instructor was Cody who is kind of a rad daredevil with a lot of energy and who wants to have fun with his students on the jumps. My instructor was JJ who was a calm, knowledgeable guy whose presence helped relax me during the whole ordeal.
Jumping was very exciting and exhilarating but my favorite part was the calm floating back to earth. It was peaceful and soothing after your nerves go a little crazy just before the jump.
My boyfriend and I have already decided to go again soon. It was definitely worth it.
If you are thinking of jumping for the first time, I can definitely say that this is the place to go. The staff was knowledgeable and experienced; our instructors specifically matched our needs perfectly.
Thank you Skydive Georgia for a great way to celebrate our anniversary!!
