Decided to brave the freezing temperatures and do my first ever skydive! 16,500ft at 8:30am on a clear winters day is just what the doctor ordered! Ridiculously reasonably priced, amazing views and the instructors make you feel 100% safe. Would do it all again! Thanks...More

Response from Skydive-Fox G | Property representative |
Hi Lesley, Due to certification limits on the equipment, we have to have a maximum passenger weight of 120KG. We do require that anyone over 100KG be assessed by one of our senior staff to ensure that they can safely jump.
