Went to the Thanksgiving Boogie. Triangle is not my home DZ. The wonderful ladies in Manifest had all the paperwork ready and our gear was checked in minimal time. The DZO greeted us and it was a pleasure to make his acquaintance. During the Boogie, student and tandem jumpers got their jumps in along with the fun jumpers. Videographers and photographers were always available to take videos/pictures. Ops tempo was great as jumpers had sufficient time to pack and manifest for the next load. Jump organizers were engaged organizing formation jumps. The Thanksgiving Dinner was a real treat and of all the Thanksgivings I've enjoyed, a Thanksgiving Boogie is its own chapter. This is an outstanding DZ! I hope to be back very soon!

I went with a group of friends to Triangle's Thanksgiving Boogie. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. We were given a tour of the entire place as well as the aircraft. Were told about landing patterns and shown the aerial photo of the area and made to feel comfortable before we jumped. Everyone was extremely helpful. The packers even took time to show us various packing techniques. When a few of us needed a packer they literally RAN to help with a huge smile. Manifest who was extremely busy ran everything with a smile as well and extreme professionalism. This is a well run, clean, friendly, no cliques drop zone. They have plenty of seating a really nice shaded wooden deck and outside picnic tables a indoor viewing area and very clean bathrooms. Will return

We went here to do our first skydives and almost everything was great from most of the staff to the plane to the skydive to the video guy, even the two hour wait wasn't bad.

We only had two problems, one on the telephone, the man was so rude that we almost didn't go. The other was my tandem instructor who was hitting on me badly from start to finish (incl. finding me on facebook and trying to friend me) and telling sexist and racist jokes which were so offensive that one of the other instructors apologized for him.

After I jumped I was talking to two other people who jumped last year and had the same problem so this isn't a one off.

If you are male I recommend Triangle Skydiving, if you are female just be careful who you friend on facebook and what you say to your instructor.

Went to NC to visit a friend and to do some funjumps at Triangle. The moment I walked into their office (spotlessly clean and AC'd considering it was 102 outside) the friendliness smacks you in the face. Easy time signing in.

Hangar is small but very comfortable: couches, fans, GREAT packing mats (no sore knees from packing). Atmosphere in the hanger was relaxed and not cliquey. There were two teams there practicing and other fun jumpers but even so, no tension nor fuss.

Loads were steady and Greg, the DZO/TM was energetic, welcoming and in between tandem jumps was organizing jumps.

There are student jumpers there and instructor (Randy) was just great in handing out advice and suggestions without sounding heavy handed.

My friend and I had a wonderful time at this dropzone. Id definitely jump again there and would highly recommend this place if you are in NC.

Buyer Beware

I bought a Groupon last September to sky dive. After waiting a few hours and watching 3 groups jump before our turn the skies opened up and we were told we would be unable to go. We were given a rain check. Since the Groupon had an expiration date I made sure to ask before we left, “does this rain check expire?” I was told “no.” Because of work, my wife being in nursing school and the cold of the winter we did not make it back to Triangle Skydiving Center until last week. After we turned in our rain check and were waiting for our group to be called we were called up to the counter and told that our rain check had expired. The rain check had no expiration printed on it. When I asked about the lack of expiration date on the rain check they said that our Groupon had an expiration date and that was the date the rain check also expired. They then told us that we could only go if we paid the difference between the Groupon price and the normal price. Since my choices were to let them keep all my money or pay them an extra $180 I told them that I would pay their price but I would contact Groupon and let them know what happened. That is when the real fun began. When it was my turn to go I got no ground school, yet my daughter did. My instructor told me that I did not need a jump suit or a helmet, yet my daughter did. My instructor only talked to me while we were on the ground to say “Is your harness tight enough?” On the plane we got up to 13,000 ft. and it was our time to go and he gave me brief instructions on what to do when we jumped and that we would talk about landing while in the air. Moving from the front of the plane to the back to jump my instructor pushed and pushed while my legs got caught under the bench and bent all over till we got to the door.

The jump was great but we never talked about the landing. After we were under the canopy he kept spinning and spinning never being told what to do about landing. I had seen others throws their legs up and land on their butts. Right before we landed I put up my legs but then my instructor took hold of my harness, flipped me over, bouncing me onto the ground and landing right on top of me until we came to a stop. I ended up walking away with two bloodied knees and a bruised rib. They either really suck as teachers or they did it on purpose because I was upset that they extorted more money out of me. Either way they are very unprofessional so I would go somewhere else.

Groupon gave me back my full purchase price so high marks to Groupon.
