3 of us bought Groupons and went for our first skydive in July 2014 with Skydive Midwest. Upon arrival, we checked in and were each handed a hefty packet to sign. This was probably the scariest part of our whole adventure. The staff was very professional and welcoming. Our classroom time was quick and answered all of our questions. We each then were assigned a tandem partner/instructor who got us all geared up and ready for our flight. I purchased the video package and so glad I did, it gave me an on-ground interview, in flight picks and awesome video and still shots at 14,000 feet up!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE VIDEO!! Once loaded in the place everyone was real nice, our instructors walked us through what to do, when to do it and so on. They double checked all of the gear and made sure we were 100% attached to them and off we went. It was absolutely awesome and I cannot wait to go again!!
