From start to finish this was one of the best days ever. We came in with a group of six. It was for my dad‘s bucket list. He’s turning 83 on Halloween I jumped my brother jumped, my nephew jumped. My son-in-law jumped, and our nieces husband jumped all had an amazing experience. Shout out to Ginger, she was awesome. In the beginning I said this is a one and done but after I did it, I might change my mind and if I do, I’ll be back. Thank you so much.

Absolutely amazing place. Go grab your balls and GO SKYDIVING!!! HERE!!! I came here in a group of 5. All of our first times ever. We went TWICE in one day. My tandem instructor was Ryan Reb, absolute champion!!! If you are coming here I highly recommend jumping with Ryan. This guy was a huge professional, knew how to explain everything, got me knowledgeable about all the hand signals. by my second jump I was getting everything down! They have a deal for $199 if you purchase your 2nd ticket within 1 week and you go within a year. I highly recommend you do this, if you went once and liked it, the second time is WAY BETTER. I got the pro video package so I was able to have a videographer out there with me, I got Baxter (I thought his name was Bastian so I kept calling him that, sorry Baxter.) Baxter is awesome, made me feel like a true VIP throughout the whole experience and working with Baxter and Ryan man it was a fantastic time. great vibes from everyone working, I watched as the instructors would walk out one by one calling our names, they were super friendly and really got you calm and excited towards jumping out of that plane!! Here are some pics with me and Ryan, thank you Baxter for the pics and awesome videos. Thank you chicago skydive.

I purchased 2 tickets for my boyfriend as a gift and an experience for both of us as neither of us have been skydiving. And let me just say.. wow! Best activity gift I think I have ever bought. It was around $550 for 2 people, I passed on the media package but I will definitely budget for it next time. We went at 1 PM on a Monday and only waited about 30 mins before we started gearing up. If you are going on the weekends, be prepared to wait a few hours because they try to get everyone up there in bigger groups, probably to minimize how many trips the pilot makes. The woman at the front desk was so helpful and gave us a really realistic timeline of when things would get started. We watched a short instructional video beforehand and the instructors went over the process about 3 more times before we got in the plane. They triple checked all the gear, made sure we felt safe, and hyped us up as we got up there. The jump was INCREDIBLE! I was excited but very anxious right before we jumped, and after I stopped screaming bloody murder during the free fall, I was able to relax and enjoy floating around and taking in all the views. My TI Sylvio was awesome - great sense of humor and made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. The landing was smooth, and we were on our way home about 15 mins after we landed. What an amazing experience. I can’t wait to do it again!!
