What if I'm afraid of heights?
Many people are hesitant to skydive due to their personal fear or discomfort of heights. A skydiving experience does not equate to being at the top of a ladder, bridge or building. You are simply too high up to have any height induced vertigo or dizziness.You will be over two miles up. An individual would no more encounter a fear of heights during skydiving than when flying in a jet airliner.
How fast will I be falling?
Free fall speeds are approximately 120 MPH. Please note that this can increase or decrease slightly depending on body size and position.
Can you breathe in freefall?
The free fall and parachute environments do not cause any difficulty in breathing, however, some students have commented that it was awkward to breathe during the first few seconds. This is not caused by lack of oxygen, but by the surge of adrenaline and excitement of first jumping out of the aircraft.

"My instructor (Matt) was very good at putting me at ease throughout the whole process. I have been more afraid driving on the highway than I was skydiving!"
"I went on a tandem skydive (my first jump) in New Jersey. Everyone there was absolutely great to be around and to work with. They made the whole experience so much better by being very welcoming and helpful. My jump went as smoothly as I expected it would, since it was clear that everyone there knew what they were doing and were very careful. For anyone that's never skydived before, I can't tell you how amazing an experience it. I've been fortunate enough to be able to do a few things I really love in recent years, but nothing can really touch this for sheer impact. It's definitely something you can never forget. My only "downers" were that I wish there were some way I could have arrived at the facility closer to my jump time, as my wait time was extremely long. It would have been helpful to have been given more information as to how I'd know which load I was assigned, and when I should be ready to go. Considering how incredible this experience is, these points didn't really take away from it for me, but I'm a really patient guy. :)"
"I used points from my bank card to get this experience for my husband. He has been wanting to jump out of a plane for a while. When I booked the experience and spoke with your representative Tanya, she was great and had an easy time. The day of my husband having his experience, we got there at 1pm as per his email from Cloud9., however, we had to wait because they could not find the payment information from your company. They had him in the line for 45 minutes trying to find out why there was no payment from Cloud9. They ( Skyfall Experience) tried to contact your company but you were closed. The young lady from the front almost did not allow him to jump, until her supervisor Chris, who says their company has worked with Cloud9 before, allowed my husband to jump. Booking was easy, but having to wait for the experience was difficult. Having to worry if he was even going to be able to jump was also hard. He had been waiting for the experience for 5 years. Overall, it was a great time, you guys just need to be able to be open on weekends if there is an issue."
