Congratulations to Riva, Tommy, Marcela and Brett for getting their crests completed, and also Emma, Savannah and Shane who all got successful jumps signed off!

Reviews & Visitor Book Comments

 Michelle: “Amazing!! Booking the next one!!”

 Ethan: “Had a great time. Robin was awesome, keen to get my License.  Thanks to the professionalism form this place.”

 Clive (via email): “No one word could explain my/our experiences we (Michelle and I) had over the weekend at Ramblers, we saw the best shooting star EVER!!! on the Friday night after arriving, I had a life changing experience on the Saturday morning with my 1st skydive jump so much so I had to do another to enjoy the experience I missed out on the 1st jump to which we were given the most spectacular sunset in the world, no one could ever describe that view, you have to see it to appreciate it. However that was not the only memory I will forever keep, it was when I/we offered to buy ‘a’ drink that we realized what a beautiful bunch of people you skydivers are at Ramblers and that alone was worth every cent spent over the weekend. I ‘may’ not ever come back to Toogoolawah to skydive because I want to now skydive everywhere I go but I would definitely love to come back and buy you all another case of beer. Thank you Ramblers and of course especially Grego, Ty and Robin for making the experiences so so much more exciting but ‘maintenance’ on the chute while we were under the canopy at whatever altitude Ty I had 110% belief you were going to get me to the ground safely so that did not bother me the slightest.”

Went with them today for my first ever skydiving. It was amazing, exhilarating and exciting. Don't be scared, there's nothing terrifying about it. Once you are out of the plane, it feels like you're flying.
