Online Waiver All Customers have to complete the digital waiver (and respond to verification email) at least 24 hours before their reservation time or be charged an extra $10 per person (for everyone completing a paper waiver onsite). A link for the online waiver will be sent upon completion of your booking, or you can follow this link: 2017 Tandem Skydiving Waiver If you have completed a waiver this calendar year, you do not need to do it again (i.e. once you completed one 2017 waiver, you are good for all of 2017). We have the lowest package prices in Chicagoland and this allows us to provide efficient customer service, and keeps your on-site time as low as possible.
Maximum weight for height: All jumpers must be under the maximum weight for their height according to our height/weight chart. If you are between 210 and 239 pounds (and under max weight for height), you will be charged an extra $30.00 for your skydive. If you are between 240 and 270 pounds (and under max weight for height), you will be charged an extra $50.00 for your skydive. We can skydive safely with many people between 210 and 270 pounds, but it is much more work for the instructor and creates more wear & tear on the skydiving equipment.
Why Skydive Here? The Chicago area provides a number of choices for skydiving, and no matter where you go, the skydive is roughly the same (amazing). What is different about each Skydiving Center is their location and proximity to you. We have the best location for views of Chicagoland, and are closest to the city of Chicago (especially if you are south of 290). We jump 2 miles from Lake Michigan in Michigan City, Indiana, are only an hour from the Loop. On your flight up and skydive, you can see from St. Joseph, Michigan all the way to Gurnee, IL (the whole south end of Lake Michigan), including the beautiful Chicago Skyline. There is not a more beautiful place to skydive in the entire Midwest! Wherever you choose to skydive, we hope you have a great time, but if you want the most out of it, Skydive Windy City Chicago should be your choice! Altitudes are approximate and may be affected by meteorological condtions or air-traffic control limitations.
Discount Vouchers From time-to-time we may offer discount skydiving vouchers through a 3rd party such as Groupon. You are free to purchase these vouchers when available, but note the fine print. They are limited in time-frame and package type. If you purchase a voucher you must book online following instructions provided after purchase. No extra discounts apply to voucher skydives (no birthday, group, weekday, etc…). You may add video and/or pictures at the prices noted above.
Price Matching Skydive Windy City of Chicago will match published prices of other skydiving centers in our market area. Skydive Windy City also matches groupon prices for offers from us and other centers in our market, just make the booking online as normal and let us know when you arrive with evidence of the price that we can verify.

Skydive Windy City Chicago
We are Chicago's closest and most convenient skydive center. We offer services for tandem and licensed jumpers.
We also have a view of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline that cannot be matched by any other sky dive center!
Experience the Thrill!
Tandem Parachuting is the most popular way to experience the thrill of skydiving. No experience is necessary and Tandem is statistically 4 times safer than solo skydiving. We have the fastest service times and best packages in the midwest. Book your skydive online and save money & time. See our 2017 altitude upgrade options.
Video & Pictures
Capture your Jump!
You can add Pictures , Video or both to your experience for very reasonable prices. The pictures and/or video are delivered to you in raw format on via internet link, usually before you leave (usually within 30 minutes of landing). You may have us edit your video and/or receive it on USB for a small extra charge.
Solo Training Program!
If you enjoyed your Tandem as much as most, you may wish to take it a step further. Our Solo Training Program (STP) is a comprehensive program of instruction that helps you earn your United States Parachute Association (USPA) "A" Skydiving license.
Jump with a view!
Unlike many small dropzones, we allow experienced (licensed) skydivers. With our Cessna 208-114A jumpship, there are almost always slots available for experienced skydivers and STP (Solo Training Program) students. See the Chicago Skyline and 3 states of Lake Michigan Shoreline during your skydives.
