About Skydive Windy City
Chicago's safest, closest, and most scenic skydiving experience. No experience is necessary (18 and over only) to enjoy the 120MPH free-fall and scenic parachute flight next to Lake Michigan with an awesome view of the Chicago skyline. Tandem Skydiving, Solo Skydiving, Experience (licensed) Skydiving, Team Skydiving, Group Skydiving, we do it all. We are the closest skydiving center to Chicago, less than 1 hour drive away from the loop, or you can take the South Shore Line to Michigan City. Incredible (unmatched in the Midwest) views of Lake Michigan (we are often flying right over the lake) and the Chicago skyline. Lots of other stuff to do in Michigan City as well (shopping, casinos, the beach, great restaurants ), so make a day of it! Reservations are encouraged and get you the best prices Book online or just come out and watch us jump from perfectly-good airplanes (spectators free).

Overview
Go skydiving in Indiana at a location situated only a 1-hour train ride from Chicago, making it easy to reach without a car. Your instructor provides all necessary equipment and training for your jump, then accompanies you on the tandem skydiving experience from 14,000 feet (4,267 meters). See Lake Michigan and perhaps the Chicago skyline from the air, and purchase video and photos of your jump if you wish.

I think I was good experience to view the city from above and instructors they play a big role to take your attention and not to fear because it was my first time and I was so scared but the instructor was very good person . Only my point view just delaying of videos and photos for 24 -48 hours

Skydiving has been on my bucket list for a long time! Thanks to my being bored, and Groupon, I decided to just go for it! I had so much fun! It's definitely an experience I think everyone should try at least once! Tom was my instructor, and he was so nice, knowledgeable, and made me feel so comfortable about being pushed out of an airplane! Lol! I would definitely do this again, in a heartbeat! Everyone was so nice and professional, the facility was clean and welcomed spectators, and I felt safe and comfortable the entire time! I had to reschedule a couple of times, due to weather, but they made that very easy to do as well, and they were great at communicating the night before (and day of) of any issues going on, saving me making the 2 hour drive for nothing. I will definitely be back to jump again, and again!

This experience is AMAZING! The staff is super savvy so they will make the feat go away as soon as you talk with them. They have a lot of safety precautions and are super flexible and friendly. I loved my video and my pictures. Kirk was my instructor and he was amazing at keeping me calm and excited! Definitely jump with friends, it makes the whole experience more fun!
