- $139 for one tandem skydive ($229 value)
Skydivers undergo a 20-30 minute training session with an experienced instructor, who guides them through the jumping and landing process. Once in the air, skydivers (who are harnessed to their instructors) leap from up to 14,500 feet for up to 50 seconds of free-fall.
Lone Star Parachute Center
Lone Star Parachute Center's U.S. Parachute Association–certified instructors really know their jumps—each has completed an average of more than 4,000 skydives apiece. The instructors' ample experience helps them to securely guide thrill-seekers during tandem jumps, solo skydives, and bouts of spontaneous levitation. Skydivers leap from a sleek and speedy N203SF Super Otter jump ship, which can sail to 14,500 feet in only 18 minutes, even with 23 jumpers in tow. While awaiting take-off, patrons can picnic in the observation area as they watch other jumpers land, gearing up for their own leaps or adding to their collection of candid cloud photos.
