11,000-foot Tandem Skydive in East Tennessee

A Tandem involves a certified instructor who has made a minimum of 500 jumps and is certified by the USPA. Our tandem instructors have perfected Freefall and have trained for emergency circumstances. Tandem skydiving is the EASIEST way to make that First Jump.

After a short training class you will suit up then you and your instructor will climb to over 11,000 feet. Wearing a tandem parachute system, you and your Tandem Instructor will jump together and accelerate to 120 MPH, freefalling for about 45 seconds. At 5500′, the parachute is deployed by the instructor.

During the 5-6 minute parachute ride back to earth, you will enjoy the beautiful views of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Douglas Lake and, if you like, try your hand at piloting the parachute.

The Day of Your Skydive

  • Wear soft-soled tennis shoes and comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather. Tight jeans are NOT recommended.
  • Drink plenty of water and eat normally.

You must be at least 18 yrs old and no heavier than 220 lbs. Due to the extra work on the instructor and equipment wear, there is a $35 upcharge for clients exceeding 220 pounds, 230 pounds is the maximum allowed. For the safety of our guests we wash jumpsuits after each use and no longer rent goggles. The goggles start at $12 and are included in tandem pricing.
