I recently went for skydiving at zoo skydive. It was my first time and it was a wonderful experience, beautiful dropzone!! Very friendly and helpful people. They even came to pick us from the station. the scenery was beautiful. Though was bit scared before but I really enjoyed the dive. I would definitely like to come back to do AFF course there

Visited the Zoo on a Friday afternoon whilst on holiday in Rome. Dz staff were super friendly and the document check was completed with ease.

DZ brief was concise and before I knew it I was on the first lift of the day with nearly new rental gear.

Landing area is sandwiched between the hanger and runway but it did not prove to be an issue.

All in all a great experience which I would recommend, it certainly satisfied my need to get a few in whilst on holiday.

Grazie Mille lo Zoo!

Checked out the place last Sunday as I had a day to spare in Rome, and i can safely say that it was a great experience.

I got in contact with the DZ through e-mail before visiting and they were very helpful throughout - outlining prices, directions, procedures, etc...

I spent some fun hours in great company, right from when I got picked up at the station in the morning, till when I was dropped back off in the late afternoon. Students, staff and instructors add to the great environment.

- Prices are reasonable
- It's easy to get on loads
- Scenery is nice
- Instructors & staff are very helpful (& speak English well)
- Quick access from central Rome

The DZ is situated just 45 minutes (Ä6 by train) from the main Termini station at Rome.

A definite must if you're in the area during the weekend, or if you're planning a holiday in Rome and have a free day for skydiving on Saturday or Sunday. I will surely visit again.

P.S - This is the second DZ I've visited, since my AFF course in Ocana, Madrid.

I went in vacation to Italy with my girlfriend and decided to skydive ( always bring my rig with me Just in case).

Well this time was the case, look up dz.com and found The Zoo skydive 1.5 hrs From where I was in Rome, rented a car and went there...
Manifest woman does not understand about skydive and don't speak good English.

Dropzone is located right at the intersection of 2 highways west and south, if you go south is swamp if you go west there is houses, so you have to stay in your pattern all the time, North of the DZ is a big mountain, as a result the airplane (no seatbelts by the way) only flies East to West with the exit point right on top of the highways. DZ has a left hand pattern and right at the cross wind pattern has a huge power line which makes it very scary taking in consideration you are very low at that point and the landing area is not very grassy and with some rocks. I don't have a lot of jumps so itís very difficult to find somebody to jump with me cuz most people there think they are skygods.
Not going back there ever.

Skydive The Zoo has an excellent staff and very welcoming people except manifest woman which is very rude and wants your money. The other one is BRIAN BERO who told the other staff member in Italian that all Americans should clean our asses with our USPA license once in Italy( he did not know that we speak Italian). The only thing I wanted as a tandem inst. is jump with my brother for the first time and it was not possible at that DZ.
