Just do it! I was hesitant due to being scared of heights, but the staff made the whole process run smooth. Definitely will do it again.

Everything about this experience was easy and enjoyable. I jumped tandem - it was my first jump! - and the training was straightforward and brief enough so I could remember the few things I had to do. My instructor, Kirk, was friendly, excited for me and put me at ease. I would recommend this experience with this organization to anyone and everyone. One thing to keep in mind - they are located in Central Time so if you're coming from Michigan or Ohio, keep that in mind!

About Skydive Windy City

When it comes to appreciating Chicago's skyline, few experiences can stack up against Skydive Windy City. Just an hour south of the Loop, (the closest jump site to Chicago) jumpers freefall toward breathtaking scenery from over a mile up. On their way down they'll have a clear shot from Chicago to Lake Michigan's south shore, and much of northwest Indiana. Tandem jumpers can enjoy the exhilaration without any worries thanks to professional, experienced instructors who are strapped in behind them for the ride. And though making it to the ground takes just a few minutes, jumpers can relive and share the adventure thanks to available photo and video packages.
