About
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).

I went with a friend who was fulfilling one of the items on their Bucket List. It was a lot of fun watching how they are tethered and instructed on the process. I am glad that at least 5 people are in the plane.

Edu was the greatest!

They kept me updated on the status of the jump before I left for my 1.5 hour trip to Michigan City. All I came in contact with were professional. I had an excellent experience diving with Justin. He made the dive even more fun.

I went a few days before my birthday and skydiving was a great birthday gift and one of the best experiences of my life! My instructor John was professional, amicable, and made everyone comfortable. Skydive Windy City ensures everyone's complete safety while still letting you enjoy a thrilling experience. I highly recommend this experience and highly recommend getting the gold package (photos and videos) - you will cherish those memories for a lifetime!

It was a thrill like never before. We all felt safe with the instructors and the pilot. We went as a group my daughter, my son, his girlfriend, and my brother.

This was my eighth jump and one of the best! John was great and the view of Lake Michigan spectacular. Very professional all the way around from the facility to the plane to the instructors. Loved every minute!

Customer service, scheduling & safety were spot on. I have skydived in the past at a different facility & I think Skydive Windy City provides a better view.
