This was such a fun experience. The staff were all wonderful! I was really nervous at first but ended up having a blast and coming back later that day! Caleb was my instructor and he was super helpful and gave great feedback to make each flight more fun! The instruction alone was part of the reason for returning again! I hope I am able to come back sometime in the near future and I hope Caleb is still there instructing!

I went with three other people and was excited about skydiving as shown on their website and in the video we had to watch. The employee who went in with us held me tight the whole time except for when he tossed me on to the padding against the wall - the second time he actually dropped me on to the floor in front of the padding. One of the people in my group bought the video so I saw that I had the form that was shown in the video yet he held me close the entire time and I never got to fly up. I ended up just paying full price for him to hold me with strong air blasting in my face and on me. When I asked him after why he did that he claimed I was tense and needed to relax more. Additionally, the suites that we had to wear were raggedy and the ceiling was a bit so even if he had let go I wouldn’t have gone that high. What a disappointment and waste of money and time!

Disappointed, they let the trainee to be trained and learn in our turn and ruin the whole experience.

I've looked at a lot of websites and been to several places. I learned how to fly in Pigeon Forge and I love it! It teaches you better skills, because you can fall off the wind column, and the prices are soooooooo much better than anywhere else.
