Experience the thrill of a free-fall skydive without the need for intensive training

Buy now
 
Travelling at 200 metres per second, you'll hurtle earthward from the skies, strapped to a fully qualified skydiving instructor who will deploy your parachute and ensure you land safely on solid ground. You'll feel the rush of adrenaline as you surge through the air for seven thousand feet, before your instructor guides you in for a smooth landing. This thrill-seeking experience is a truly unforgettable taste of life on the wild side!
Following a short pre-jump briefing you will be provided with a skydivers jump suit to go over your clothes (you should wear comfortable clothing such as a track suit and trainers). Then after fitting a tandem parachute harness (and appropriate headgear and goggles) the jump plane will take 20-25 minutes to reach the required altitude - then it's out in to the blue!

This experience is available at Northamptonshire:

  • Northamptonshire (Midlands) - Brackley

I bought 2 tickets to do a tandem skydive, it was amazing, the arenaline rush was excellent, and me and my girlfriend both really enjoyed it!
It was very expensive, especially the price for the DVD, I would love to do it again, but wont be for a while as it's so expensive!

I bought this for myself and my friend as its something i've always wanted to do and im so glad that I did. There just isn't enough words to explain how amazing this experience is and I would recommend it to everyone! Jumping out of the plane was much easier than I thought aswell as the professional does all the work leaving you to just enjoy yourself and take in the beautiful view. The cost on buyagift was very good compared to others that I have seen aswell. I will definately do this again, I would do it evey day if I could!!!
