Visitor Book Comments

N. Sinn  –  Juileue!
Jacob Sinn – Adrian is awesome.  Mint.
Rebecca Gray – Unreal! Amazin’ instructors!!
Cynthia Hickson – Totally  awesome – would do again.

Most amazing experience. Staff are all professional, very safety oriented but make the entire time you are there so much fun. First time jumper and we did it at night during their equinox boogie and the atmosphere was brilliant. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience an amazing jump.
