Overview

Chicago's safest, closest, and most scenic skydiving experience. No experience is necessary to enjoy the 120MPH freefall 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).

As someone who was probably as terrified of jumping out of a plane as one could be, the crew made it as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Would recommend if this is something on your mind.

we all loved it. would do it again in a heart beat. We did this because it was on the top of my nieces bucket list before she had back surgery and unable to do it. Plus I have always wanted to do it also.

Jess, I thought I responded to this, but apparently TA won't let me put a link in for you. We offer jumps with either pictures, video, or both, and all of those prices are on our website (just click from our TA page).

Just go to their website. It's $219 to jump from 10,000 feet, $259 to jump from 14,000 feet, but there are discounts for two or more jumpers in a party.
