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

Lake Wales is the BEST DZ IN FLORIDA!!! Why....? Because, it has the most friendly, inviting, welcoming, caring, organized, instructional, safety conscious, family oriented staff and fun jumpers I've ever met. And NO....no one paid me to say that. Lol. Seriously, that's how I truly left feeling!

These guys take customer care to a whole new level. Our flight was delayed which resulted in the cancellation of our skydiving booked with a far more expensive company out of Orlando and then we called lake Wales and they booked us right away and as soon as we got there in an hour seven of us had the time...

Whenever I go on holiday I always look for a experience that I can always say 'I did that'. Now Florida is filled with exciting things to do in the way of theme parks etc but doing a skydive was absolutely amazing. I have never done a skydive in my life before, so at the age of 36, what better... More

Really great experience, never jumped before but these guys were really passionate about their sport. I jumped with Brian he was so professional and explained the whole thing before we got in the plane, kept me up to speed all the way up to 2 miles above the ground. The free fall was the most incredible experience and even let... More

I came here to celebrate my 23rd birthday with my best friend and wow, what an experience! She was a little scared to go last minute. So I dived alone. Everyone there was so friendly. They made us both feel so welcome. I came last minute without a reservation and they took great care of me. Paperwork was a little... More

Felt safe at all times ... Along with Husband this was our 1st Tandem Skydive.. And WOW what an experience. I had Brian as my instructor and he was brilliant I was extremely nervous. He spoke to me all the way up to 14000 feet in the plane going through what safety checks he was doing and telling me to... More

GREAT TEAM!! That's what they are there, a team, not staff! A few of the team asked me who my instructor was. I said exactly that.. I had a team, Dennis Bracco was my instructor/my confidence booster, the voice on the inside letting me know I was going to be just fine, Johnathon was my motivator, Taylor was my "skydive... More
