Epic! The people from start to finish are outstanding! The instructor that did the dive with me was fun, reassuring, and extremely professional. I highly suggest getting the video/photography package you have a separate diver as your own personal paparazzi at 13,000 feet! Both me and my friend are overly pleased with the entire experience!

Well worth the drive. The staff is awesome and they will make you love the experience. Did my first tandem jump, Loved it. Get the video but skip on the ground photography. Definitely an unreal experience.

On holiday from the UK for a Wedding in Florida and got surprise-gifted a 14,000ft tandem jump along with the other wedding party! What an experience!!!! 6 of us jumped, no one had jumped before so had varying degrees of nerves! The whole team made the day memorable, fun, exciting and more importantly, everything felt very safe. I was paired... More

My aunt and I went for our first time and couldn't have asked for a better time! They are very fun and intelligent. I felt safe and secure during my whole experience. My instructor was Brain and my video guide was Donnie! I would go back and do it again! Thanks for the great time!!

I asked if there was any time the day of and they asked when I'd like to come in. I said that I was volunteering in Kissimmee until 12pm... More

Went for my son's birthday, I had always wanted to try skydiving. My instructor was Pip and he was awesome....I was really anxious, and kindof freaking out, but the free fall was incredible, I could have stayed that way for a lot longer, and I'm glad I did it. Everyone there was great, we had a little bit of a... More

Saw a Groupon for this place and decided to do it for my girlfriend's birthday and I'm very happy I chose this place over other ones in the area. The process was quick (probably because we were the 1st ones there for the day). We arrived at 8am and were in the plane headed up by 820! I was over... More
