The place gets a reputation for not being fun jumper friendly. This is not entirely true.
While you can turn up and jump, you probably wont have anyone to jump with and there wont be lots of fun jumpers dirt diving and shooting the breeze between loads. It is a tandem mill plain and simple (one of the most efficient I have ever seen BTW). If you turn up with some friends (2-3 max) and do your own organizing and make yourselves unobtrusive you could probably do two or three in a day.

If more fun jumpers (especially local ones) were turning up regularly they wouldnt be turned away and that "scene" perhaps could be created.

Today was my first time jumping in Vegas. I came to Extreme Skydiving based on recommendations and word of mouth. They did not disappoint! The owner showed me the ropes and checked my gear and the pilot and staff were fun to talk to and genuinely love the sport. I got tons of great advice and the facilities are extremely comfortable and nice. Indoor packing area with a lot of room. They use modern technology, electronic load schedules and video equipment. Very professional staff, these guys know their business well and it shows. Within 15min of showing up I was in the plane and ready to go. Plane is modern and comfortable, and super fast to get up to 13k. Landing area was clearly marked and well spaced, they were right there to pick us up and keep the show rolling. This is definitely my new dz home, I can't wait for next week. Fun jumpers come join me, you won't be disappointed!

Great Place for a Skydive in Vegas

I visited Skydive Vegas Extreme to make a few fun jumps while in town with some friends. I was told on the phone that their priority and focus is mainly on tandem jumpers, I should come out to the DZ to do waivers, check in, etc and that they would accommodate me if they could. Sure enough they had 4 tandem loads go up and I was able to make two of them.

I've seen a lot of reviews mentioning rude and angry staff but they were all great fun and easy to get along with, I just had to work with their schedule. The staff sets the example on the interaction with their tandem customers, hands down from their arrival to departure they are all well taken care of.

I'll would certainty recommended Skydive Vegas Extreme for folks interested in tandem skydives and fun jumps too.

I had to go to Vegas from Germany from one day to the next and therefore had no own equipment with me.
There I checked with the different DZs if they do fun jumpers and rent equipment.
All others told me on the phone that they are only doing tandems.
I drove to Jean and checked with them for the gear and the schedule. As a result they only had big student rigs (240 or bigger) as regular rental gear available. As I am a short and light guy and with the wind speed they had this wound have blown me backwards.
I thought that would have been the end of my wish to jump there but one of the instructors - thanks again Brian - offered to bring his wifes rig (190) the next day and he did.

About the jump everything went well. The landing area is a little bit away in the desert but there was already a van waiting for us to bring us back.

The only -in my opinion - really stupid thing is that all Vegas DZs propose to have "Highest Skydive in Las Vegas - 15,000 Feet!". Somehow it is true but misleading as the DZ is at 3,000ft and they go up 12,000 feet which really brings you up to 15,000 feet but pretty much everybody would expect a 15,000 feet jump not jumping from 15,000 when reading the headline.

Nevertheless I would come back anytime as of their friendlyness and I can recommand this place to everybody who wants to make a fun jump in Vegas.

Fun Jumper: Had an excellent experience, keep going back for more

I made the easy 25 minute drive, went to VES looking to make some fun jumps, though I'd heard it was mainly a tandem operation. I was immediately made to feel right at home by the friendly staff in spite of how organized/busy they seemed with students, they got me in the air right away. Made a few the first day, came back for more. Definitely "fun jump" friendly.

No little Cessna to wrangle out of, I love the PAC 750XL aircraft!

Have recommended 3 family and friends so far to make their first jumps in the last month, all have had a very positive experience.

Perhaps the negative reviews are written by back biting competitors disguised as customers? Vegas Extreme is a great place to make your tandem, is fun jumper friendly and super close to Las Vegas.
