The facilities are beautiful. This is what you picture a dropzone to look like before you ever went to a drop zone. I was hoping the place would be more busy on weekdays.

I was on leave and drove here to make some jumps. The aircraft is awesome. I almost got to make night jumps but the rain screwed that up. Tried to jump the next day and got rained out again! It was still worth the trip. As expected in the south, the people are very friendly and talk funny. Great DZ.

I went to the Bear Lake Boogie on leave. I didn't know anybody there. I got to jump with other people every jump. Even got in a ten way. The hospitality was remarkable. I'm glad I made the 13 hour drive.

I took the canopy course, water training, and license exam all in one day. If you got the money, they got the fix!

I'm a fun jumper and didn't have to pay for rental gear and it was very affordable. The King Air has a fucking radio playing while we went to altitude! Holy shit, awesome place!

Great place to learn, but not to stay


Sin City Skydiving Rated 4 by: Bealio on 2010-06-03

Pros: No tandems required to start AFF
Cons: Not a place for fun jumpers

I did my AFF there and they didn't require any tandem jumps. The landing area is miles wide. After I graduated, I could only jump when tandems were scheduled and it was only solo jumps with no coach jumps provided to me. If I would have stayed there, I would probably never have gotten licensed. They also would jump tandems at only 8,000 feet and I would have to jump at that altitude as well and pay full price, $25. I recommend this place for anyone wanting to learn, but once you graduate AFF, go somewhere else.

I am a licensed skydiver and wanted to jump in my home town while I was on leave. They made me feel very welcome and other fun jumpers came up to me to ask if I wanted to jump with them. I had my first reserve ride there and were very supportive about it and encouraged me to keep jumping. It's very cheap to jump there as well and gear rental is cheap too with a lot of variety.
