Save Money When you Choose Flex-Time Tandem Skydiving Closest to Chicago
When you choose the flex-time option for $30 per person discount (can be combined with group and other discounts), you simply pick the day you want to jump (reservations close 24hrs prior) and we’ll contact you the night before your skydive to let you know which timeslot you’ve been assigned.
Flex-time jumpers allow us to operate more efficiently, and we pass the savings on to you! Come take a leap of faith at the closest skydive center to Chicago, just a one-hour drive from downtown, easily accessible via the South Shore Line.
We suggest you make a deposit only (instead of the pay-in-full option) since the prices listed during the booking will not include discounts you may receive at check-in. All discounts (flex-time, group, student, birthday, public servant) are applied when you arrive and pay your remaining balance before skydiving.
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 MAY NOT SKYDIVE IN BOOTS, HARD-SOLED SHOES, SANDALS, OR BAREFOOT.
- Wear comfortable clothes for your day. You may jump in shorts (mid-thigh or longer suggested) and a t-shirt if you wish. We provide everything else you need, including goggles (and a full-body jumpsuit and gloves/hat if necessary). At jump altitudes, temperatures are usually a bit cooler than on the ground, so if you chill easily, dress a bit 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.
Discount and Pricing Notes
Our Gold skydive package is the complete skydive with videos AND photos included at significant discount.
Our Silver skydive package is also the complete skydive, but with videos OR photos (jumper chooses at check-in).
The Bronze skydive is primarily for those who have jumped before. It is the complete skydive, but no videos or photos.

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 during check-in and may have to complete their waiver onsite. A link for the online waiver will be sent upon completion of your booking, or you can follow this link: 2020 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 2019 waiver, you are good for all of 2019). We have the lowest package prices in Chicago, have the lowest deposits, and our 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. If you are under the maximum weight for your height according to our chart, and you weigh over 210lbs, there will be an extra charge (over 210-239lbs= $30, 240-270lbs=$50, 270-300lbs=$80. We can skydive safely with many people up to 300 pounds, but it is much more difficult for the instructor and creates more wear and possible damage to the skydiving equipment. If you weigh over 300lbs (on our scale, in your clothing), we cannot skydive with you under any circumstances.
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.
