What if I decide that I do not want to jump?
What is the cancellation policy?
What happens if the weather is bad?
What should I wear for my tandem skydive?
Skydiving is a sport so athletic wear usually works best. With that being said we just ask that you wear tennis shoes or similar that you can tighten on your feet. You are welcome to wear shorts or pants, but keep in mind when you land you may slide in on your bottom. It is Colorado so we recommend you bring layers, you can always leave extra jackets in your car or at the front desk if you decide to not wear them in the plane.
What should I bring with me?
Your ID, payment for your jump, cash if you would like to tip your instructor. Otherwise, bring whatever you may need to be at our facility for 3 hours. For you that could be snacks, water, sunglasses, binoculars, etc…
We ask you to not bring alcohol, drugs, or dogs and other pets (service animals allowed).
Can I bring my family to watch?
How fast do you fall?
How long is a skydive?
How long will my experience take?
There are several variables that can speed up or slow down the process. How busy we are that day, weather, and what time you arrive all effect how quickly we can get you on your jump. The safety breifing, gear up process, and safety check will take 30 minutes. The plane ride to our jump altitude will take approximately 15 minutes as well. Commonly, your whole experience will take approximately 3 hours. However, you should be prepared to stay the whole day to complete your skydive.
