As your altitude increases, so does your excitement! When you reach 15,000ft, you'll be ready to exit the plane and experience the unforgettable exhilaration of free-falling at over 200 kilometres per hour! 

After one minute of complete free-fall, catch your breath and take in the beautiful views as the parachute opens and you enjoy a 6-minute ride back down to Earth.

You will need to seek medical advice from your doctor before jumping. We’re not able to give you medical advice. We can tell you what to expect but ultimately the decision will be up to you.

You will be provided with a jumpsuit, goggles, hat and buff for your skydive, so just wear warm comfortable clothes to wear underneath and closed-toe shoes. If you wear glasses it’s no problem, we’ll give you skydiving goggles that fit over them.
