Choose Between Two Options
$157 for a tandem skydiving package for one (a $322 total value)
$312 for a tandem skydiving package for two (a $644 total value)
Each package includes:
- Tandem skydive with an instructor (a $297 value/person)
- $25 per person toward a video of their experience ($99) or toward one item of shop apparel or accessories such as a T-shirt ($20) or thermal travel coffee mug ($15)<p>
At the designated dive altitude, participants strap into a tandem-parachute rig with an instructor and duos plunge into a 120 mph free fall. During the descent, participants can take in panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by lakes and forests, see the Capitol skyline in the distance, and challenge passing birds to do-si-do. Once instructors deploy the parachute, pairs drift to ground in a five- to nine-minute canopy ride, during which participants can steer the parachute upon request. Each plane accommodates two divers, and all parachutes are outfitted with an automatic deployment system for added safety.<p>

The adventure-seeking staff members of ThrillZOWN organize outdoors adventures at more than 100 locations nationwide, letting customers experience the waters, air, and land of America’s diverse regions. Seasoned guides lead adventurers on whitewater-rafting trips on inland rivers, and instructors conduct lessons in surfing and filling out life guards' paperwork at coastal beaches. Other guides help guests plunge to earth safely in tandem-skydiving and tandem-paragliding flights, while aeronauts sweep them through scenic country vistas during hot-air-balloon flights. On dry land, equestrians teach customers to think like a centaur on horseback trail rides, and professional stock-car drivers guide them in laps around a racetrack.
