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.

The crew was amazing! Made my first jump as comfortable as it could be for jumping out of a plane lol. I would recommend them to anyone and I will definitely be back for another jump.

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.
