More extreme than it looks - free-fall for 60m then swing out to 109m. I loved it so much that I 'pin-dropped' first, then immediately harnessed up for a second jump. 'Pin-drop' is supposed to be one of the scariest jumps you can do, but...More

In terms of adventure sports I've pretty much done them all; Bungy, Skydive but this was by far the most exhilarating. It was very scary and I almost didn't do it.. I would recommend everyone try it!!!

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!

Hi Jim We do allow you to bring you own Go Pro, which you can use on most jumpstyles (some jumpstyles you can't for your own safety), so long as it's securely fastened with a hands free mount. Chest, wrist and head mounts... More
