How it works:
Upon arrival, you will check in and begin a short class, paperwork and watch a video explaining your skydive. This process generally only takes about 20 minutes and upon completion, you will be paired with your instructor to go over the entire skydive.
The Ground Prep
Next, you will be geared up and fitted with a state of the art harness system designed specifically for tandem skydiving and will then board a customized aircraft with your instructor. On the climb to altitude (up to 14,500ft!!!), you will enjoy captivating views of the NYC skyline, High Point monument, the rolling countryside, and all the beauty Northern New Jersey has to offer.
In freefall, have fun with your videographer! This is your experience and we're here to make it as memorable as we can. You have approximately 60 seconds to geek the camera so get your smiles ready!
The Parachute Ride
When it’s time to deploy your parachute, the next part of the skydive begins. During a scenic 5-7 minute canopy ride back to the landing zone you will literally feel on top of the world as your instructor guides you to the ground. You can wave to your family and friends waiting in the spectator area as your instructor lands the parachute system. Before your feet even touch the ground, you'll be anticipating your next jump.
