Skydive with Chicago Skyline Views
- Closest skydive to Chicago, a one-hour drive from downtown
- Accessible via South Shore Line!
What to Bring
- Bring a government-issued picture ID (passport, driver’s license, military ID, or state ID); you may not be permitted to skydive without it.
- Wear (or bring) lace-up sneakers (tennis or running shoes).
- YOU CANNOT JUMP IN BOOTS, HARD-SOLED SHOES, SANDALS, OR BAREFOOT!
- Wear comfortable clothes for the day (as if you’re going on a picnic). You may jump in shorts (mid-thigh or longer suggested) and a t-shirt if you wish. We will provide the harness and goggles . At jump altitudes, temperatures are generally a bit colder than on the ground, so if you get cold easily, dress somewhat warmer than you normally would. You should wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, as it is common to get grass stains on landing.

Skydive Windy City Chicago uses specialty multi-lens 360º cameras on every tandem skydive so you can manipulate (from almost any device) your perspective and “look around” inside the videos. No other skydiving center we know of has this capability. Silver, Gold, and Platinum packages offer the jump and media at a significant discount. Voucher-holders may add media a-la-carte at non-discounted rates.
All Jumpers have to complete the digital waiver and respond to verification email at least 24 hours before their reservation time. Those who do not complete the waiver 24 hours in advance will be charged an extra $10 quick-check fee at check-in and may have to complete their waiver onsite.
A link for the waiver will be sent upon completion of your booking, or you can follow this link: 2022 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 2021 waiver, you are good for all of 2021). We have the lowest jump package prices in Chicago, the lowest deposits, and deposits are refundable with minimum 24 hours cancellation or if weather prevents your skydive. We pride ourselves on efficient, friendly customer service, and keeping your on-site time as low as possible.
All jumpers (regardless of weight) must be under the maximum weight for their height according to our height/weight chart.
Your safety is always our primary concern, and ALL JUMPERS must be under 250lbs, and be under the maximum weight for their height according to our Maximum Weight for Height Chart. If you are under the maximum weight for your height and weigh between 210lbs and 250lbs, there is an extra charge of $40. We can skydive safely with some people over 250lbs, and if you want a personal assessment for exception to the 250lbs maximum weight, email us directly at [email protected].
The Chicago area provides a number of choices for skydiving, and no matter where you go, the skydive is going to be amazing. The difference is location/proximity to you. We have the best location for views of Chicagoland and are closest to the city of Chicago. We jump two miles from Lake Michigan and are only an hour drive 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 know you will have a great time, but if you want an amazing view during your skydive, Skydive Windy City Chicago should be your choice! Altitudes are approximate and may be affected by meteorological conditions or air-traffic control limitations.
