Awesome Thrill

Everything about this jump was awesome! They keep it exciting and make sure you stay pumped about it. Once you’re up on the platform, they keep things moving well so you don’t have much time to think, get nervous, and back out. This was a great first jump with an incredible view and I look forward to more jumps in my future!

I didn't actually jump due to neck issues but my boyfriend and dad (who is 70+) did. They had an awesome experience! They have a great gift shop and the check in was really simple and fast! I would definitely recommend this for anyone seeking adventure!
