I'am hooked! Words can hardly describe the feeling of jumping out of a plane and free falling through the sky. The facility was very well kept and everyone that worked there made you feel like family. My instructor was Fly easy (Eric) he was very clear on instructions and made sure I had the best time possible. After my first jump I purchased the discounted second jump and was back in the sky 40mins later. I highly recommend Skydive Chicago. I'am already looking into getting my A-license. Stop procrastinating and get to Skydive Chicago!!

My son and I had a great time today! Perfect weather, great instruction, no wait! I recommend completing the waivers online before you go, and getting the earliest possible time to jump. Everything here is first rate! My tandem guide, Vince was really wonderful, and Charles, the videographer did a super job, too! I'm 64, and this was on my "wish list" - It was just fantastic!!!

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.
