My boyfriend and I met up with a few friends for a couples' weekend here and camped out. 7/10 of us jumped and we all loved it! The instructors are fun, helpful and reassuring. Because we camped only a short walk away we were able to kill time at the pond while we waited for the wind to die down which was really nice. We all had a blast and we will definitely be back.

Being a first time sky diver, I had a wonderful experience with my instructor Eric. Frankly, I was a little terrified at first but over time, Eric talked me through it and instructed me on how to have a safe and comfortable dive. It was a once in a lifetime experience and I would also like to give a great thanks to the photographer for taking the amazing pictures and videos on my amazing trip. I would definitely recommend anyone to try out this fabulous adventure! Thank you so much.

Skydive Chicago is the only place to jump. The professionalism, care, friendliness and energy is all top notch. Feel like you are in good hands and just go for it. You will feel like they have everything completely in control, they are committed to safety and want you to enjoy your day. My husband and I have several jumps over the last ten years. You won't regret going to Skydive Chicago, just go.

My daughter talked me and her brother into skydiving, so we came here to jump out of perfectly good plane for the first time in our lives. The people, the facilities, the experience...everything was awesome. It had been cloudy all morning and early afternoon so we had to sit around a few hours waiting for it to clear out. They offered rain checks that could be used anytime in the next 12 months, but we waited it out and we're glad we did. Chad, C Bass and Ryan were great tandem instructors; made us feel much less nervous and got us down to the ground safely. What a ride!

If you are looking for an adventure, this is the place to go! My group made reservations ahead of time . We arrived at the designated time and filled out our paperwork, sat through a short class. We had to wait about 30 minutes for our group to be called.
I am a 54 year old woman and was assigned a tandem master by the name of Gene. Gene was exactly what I needed to rise to this challenge. He was knowledgeable and kind. He went through all of the steps with me and got me all strapped into my harness.
The jump was amazing! Everything I imagined and more!
If you are thinking about doing this, stop thinking and DO IT!
