What You'll Get
- $139 for a tandem skydive jump (up to a $229 value)
The session begins with a brief training that lasts 20–30 minutes. During a tandem jump, you are attached to your instructor the entire time. You and the instructor free-fall for about 70 seconds, and then float down to earth for another seven–nine minutes. During this time, you can help steer the parachute, and can also ask to flips. The entire experience takes two–four hours, as there may be weather delays.

About Great Lakes Skydiving
The plane at Great Lakes Skydiving is something of a celebrity—in the '90s, 20th Century Fox used it to shoot the skydiving scenes in Point Break. This was no stroke of luck. The center's dives are truly cinematic, taking place at a breathtaking elevation of up to 14,000 feet. The spacious facility is also stocked with state-of-the-art equipment, and staffed by a team of certified instructors who helm tandem dives for newbies.
