You will jump from 13,000 ft high, and reach speeds of 120 mph throughout an adrenaline-fueled minute of free-falling, after which your parachute is deployed, and you descend safely back down to Earth for a further 5-7 minutes! Always wanted to skydive? Well now is your chance!

Once fully kitted up, you're ready to take on the challenge! Climb on board, get buckled in and fly to 13,000 feet.
