Skydiving: The Ultimate Christmas Present

Skydiving: The Ultimate Christmas Present

Skydiving: The ultimate christmas present! 

Not sure what to get that person in your life who has everything? Why not give them the ultimate experience of a lifetime-a skydive! What’s better than the gift of flight? Gifting an experience in this day and age is the best way to help create lasting memories! Here are 3 reasons why everyone on your Christmas list over the age of 18 should have a tandem skydive experience: 

  1. The reaction and excitement: When they open your gift they are going to be shocked! I am going skydiving? We hope for huge smiles and a bit of nervous laughter! Gifting a skydive will not disappoint! I’m going to jump out of a perfectly good airplane on purpose!? You bet, and it’s going to be amazing! 

(Pro Tip: Book in multiple people for skydives and turn it into a family/friends event! Nothing like keeping that excitement going when you can share it with others!) 

       2. The skydive: That is pretty much self explanatory right? The moment has come! This person is actually going skydiving! After all that anticipation and excitement, the day is finally here! They will be experiencing all sorts of genuine feelings-nerves, excitement, anticipation, or a little bit of all three! The greatest part of this gift is allowing that person to step into the unknown and face their fears, all while having a blast doing it! There is nothing like jumping out of an aircraft and free falling at 120 mph! What a rush! It literally changes your life! We hear all about this when people land. 

Many say: 

“That was the greatest experience of my life!”

“I’m so glad I did this, I can’t wait to go again!” 

“I was so scared, but as soon as we left the plane, I was in the moment, it was bliss!” 

Check out our google reviews to see what other people are saying!

Don’t you want to gift this amazing experience to someone you know? Or yourself, we don’t judge! The thrill and accomplishment our students get from a skydive is unlike anything else. 

3. That after jump feeling: Skydiving changes you, in a good way! So many jumpers explain that it makes them think about life and how they live it. Are they living their best life? Are they living in the moment? It changes them for the better! It helps push them out of their comfort zone where they can truly grow, in all aspects of life! They will never forget this experience. 

(Pro Tip: Adding a media package to their skydiving gift will make sure they can relieve that amazing moment in their life again and again! Whether it’s pictures,  video, or both! They will cherish that snapshot in time for the rest of their life.) 

What are you waiting for? Gift a tandem skydive today, you won’t regret it!

Wind Knots?!

Wind Knots?!

Wind knots? Like knots in my hair? Nope! Wind knot is the speed of the wind on the ground. This can vary greatly to the wind speed at altitude! When you hear us talking about wind knots it’s really just fancy talk for how strong the wind is blowing! 

The term Knots actually dates back to 17th century sailors who used a device called a common log, this device has a long rope attached to it with evenly spaced knots. Aviation stole most of its terminology from the nautical world, similar to the navigation beacons on both ships and aircraft port (left) = red, starboard (right) = green, the more you know, right?

Why do you go back up when the parachute opens?

Why do you go back up when the parachute opens?

A common misconception in tandem skydiving is you seem to “go back up” when the parachute deploys. Because of such awesome video technology, more and more people are getting videos of their skydive. When the parachute opens in the video the tandem student and their instructor seem to go back up really fast! Students have often reported they felt they were going back up when the parachute opened. 

Sorry to burst anyone’s bubbles, but once you jump, there is no going back up! 

(Unless of course you want to jump again after you land!)

What students are experiencing is the slow down from terminal velocity as their parachute deploys. More on terminal velocity later, but just a quick note, once you are at terminal velocity you don’t feel like you are falling! When the parachute opens you decelerate from 120 mph, so when the chute opens it does feel like you are going back up because you don’t feel like you are falling in the first place! So while it may feel, and even look like you are going back up in the sky, in reality you’re just slowing down!

Skydiving On Vacation

 Important notes for booking while on vacation

We understand that the Wisconsin Dells is a very hot vacation destination for not only Wisconsinites, but also for those from out state, and even out of the country! 

Understanding this can help us make sure you book the best time possible! We recommend travelers who are only visiting the Dells for a limited time book a skydive with us early in your stay. This offers more flexibility to still get you jumped on a different day of your vacation if the weather isn’t cooperating the day of your jump.

We would love to be able to control the weather, but unfortunately we cannot, and skydiving is a weather dependent sport! Help us help you if the weather doesn’t go as planned; book your skydive early on in your trip so we can reschedule and jump with you before you head home!
