About This Experience

General Information hide

Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Feel the rush of skydiving with a tandem jump over beautiful Western Pennsylvania. Leap from a plane approximately 2 miles above the ground and freefall for 45 seconds! 

After a briefing on training and safety, you will completely understand the equipment and the sequence of events. You and your jumpmaster will board the aircraft wearing a dual harness assembly. Once you reach your jump altitude you will exit the aircraft securely harnessed to your instructor for an unbelievable freefall at 120 MPH!

After your parachute opens you will have a scenic 4 to 6 minute ride. Because your instructor is with you all the way to landing, there is no need for you to worry about anything during your jump except to remember to relax and have fun. Your instructor will take care of everything which will allow you to completely enjoy yourself.
