“I Am Acrophobic!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

I did try and I mean really tried! My friends took me to visit the Acampo Para Center which is just 20 mins. drive from where I live. This was their advanced birhtday present to me. They know that I am very very scared of heights but they said I can overcome and conquer this by parachuting (to my death(I always have that in my mind)). They told me that I need to face my fear of heights by falling (to my death) from a small airplane (looks more like a coffin to me). So I was given the lecture on the hows and whats then when they strapped me and I heard the first CLICK of the saftey harness, I just felt my knees start to buckle. I just could not do it!! But the Para Staff were very nice and friendly and they make very good tuna sandwiches:)

“30th Birthday Jump”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

My first jump was to get over my extreme fear of heights! I told myself I would do it before my 30th birthday, but instead it was ON my 30th.
Thank goodness I got the instructor that I did. He was great! I went again with a friend for her birthday and at least SHE got a good instructor that time. I rate my first experience as very good, 2nd not so much. I guess it all depends on the instructor.

Bad customer service and worse FAA compliance. Don't go here if you want to have fun.

“Really Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

I will tell you I did my jump here and they were great. I have the photos and video to prove it. IT is the best in northern california and the cheapest. If you can go here then go here to skydive.
