Nothing really feels the same as the moment you leave the plane and spin through the air. If you're afraid of heights, you won't be anymore. And if you get strapped to Ronny, you're in for a great time.

Hi there, we do not have a minimum age as such but we only have adult sized harness'. By age 11 children are normally big enough to do the activity. I hope this helps.
