Skydiving was on my bucket list for a long time and I finally found someone that would do it with me . It was a long drive and we had trouble finding the actual entrance. We walked in on I guess what was some students sleeping, so that should be a little more clear. Walt was my instructor and he... More

I went with my niece, something I've always wanted to do, she was the only brave soul that was willing to go with me. Brad was my tandem partner and Tim was my nieces. Both of them were THE BEST EVER!!!!! From start to finish they were friendly, funny and very clear with their instructions! I was so happy to... More

The guides were very supportive and were able to individualize the experience for each individual. They make you feel very safe jumping out of a plane with a stranger!

My husband gave me a lesson and jump for my birthday. the trainers were patient, knowladgeable and fun. You spend an hour or so going over rules, proceduress, etc. We went in a small group up and jumped tandem with an instructor. I paid for a video and picture, since I won't to it again- too many other things on... More

This was one of the best experiences of my life. I've never wanted to go skydiving but decided on a whim to go with my roommate to face a fear and prove that I could do it. From the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed by friendly staff who immediately calmed our nerves and answered any questions... More

This was an AMAZING experience! I bought the Groupon that they had because I like to save money - especially on something that I have never tried before! I was able to make a reservation online rather easily. We also were able to watch videos and sign all the waivers online as well. I wasn't nervous at all until I... More

I would go again and again and again. Their first priority is your safety. Second is your comfort. Third is your experience. Great staff. HIGHLY recommend.

If you're going skydiving for the first time for the tandem jump, be prepared to wait. Also the weather can mess you up big time. The day we went to jump we had to reschedule because the winds were too strong. We were given a rain check and we went the next day in the off chance we got to... More

Went skydiving but until you experience it yourself there's really no describing the experience. Just do it!!!!!
