Your Tandem Skydive begins with an orientation video, hosted by our knowledgeable manifest staff. The video will introduce you to the equipment that you will be using, as well as demonstrate the key positions that you will practice with your tandem master. After the video, you’ll be introduced to your tandem master, who will get you prepared for your jump. Your instructor will practice the key positions, as well as gear you up in a harness system. Preparation takes about 30-45 minutes. The instructor wears special equipment designed to take 2 people skydiving, and you wear a harness that attaches to the instructor's equipment at 4 points: (2 shoulder connectors & 2 hip connectors). You are very secure! The airplane ride to 10,500 ft or 12,500 ft is 25 minutes (depending on airplane used), circling Niagara Falls (weather permitting) on the way up. Once at altitude, you will then freefall for an amazing 35 - 50 seconds before the instructor opens the main parachute. To finish your skydive experience, you help fly the parachute back to the landing area. The Tandem Skydive requires a time commitment of 3-4 hours on a weekend. There is a video option available for Tandem skydives.
