Established: 2010 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 4+ hours Brands Used: Performance Designs Pro Tip: Being dependent on the weather sometimes we have to be flexible with the schedule. Handicap Accessible: Yes Parking: Parking lot Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Solo Static-Line Jump (IAD) Recommended Age Group: Adults Q&A with Nick, Dropzone Owner And Skydiving Instructor I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience? There is a four hour ground school training session followed by the solo jump on the same day. The training is a mix of in classroom power point and hands on learning. In the training, we explain everything the jumpers need to know in order to do a solo skydive. For the hands on learning, we have a training harness for jumpers to practice on. We basically go through the whole skydive on the ground before the actual jump. What?s your favorite part of your job? There is the excitement and thrill of skydiving. It's also a very interesting group of friends. Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about? There is a restaurant on premise open on Saturdays. First time jumpers and others observers that come out to watch always enjoy watching our regular jumpers float down. It's very pretty to see canopies in the air floating to the ground.

A tiger sits beneath the setting sun, her tail beating the ground as her gaze locks onto a man passing by. Luckily, the two aren’t deep in the jungle, but at Wild Animal Safari outside Atlanta, where guests view these majestic animals from the safety of slow-moving vehicles. During tours, personal cars and guided buses wind through 3.5 miles of the park’s territory, passing the habitats of 650 animals such as camels, zebras, and american bison. After the driving tour, safari groups set out on foot to spy smaller animals, including lemurs and peacocks, with opportunities to feed and pet some species. Afterward, pizza and burgers await the hungry at the safari café, and the Wild Animal gift shop offers mementos such as T-shirts and stuffed safari guides.
