Tandem Skydiving in Swindon
We really like this Experience available in Swindon, Wiltshire.
Experience the ultimate in aerial thrills with a tandem skydive from a whopping 10,000 feet. Begin with around an hour of instruction on skydiving and landing techniques, before going up in the plane. Get securely strapped to a seasoned instructor, who takes control of the jump from the plane. Enjoy about 30 mind-blowing seconds of freefall, which is so completely incredible there’s no point in us trying to describe it! Then the instructor opens up the parachute and begins the descent, so you can relax and enjoy the view. This amazing adrenaline challenge is the best way to celebrate special events such as the end of exams and birthdays.
Weekends and some weekdays, they also operate on bank holidays. The venue is closed from mid December to the first week of March annually. We recommend booking several weeks in advance, even earlier for summer weekend dates.
