Refused a refund for their mistake, hung up on us


Triangle Skydiving Center Rated 1 by: katisrad on 2017-09-08

Pros: none at all

Worst customer service in the history of the entire universe. My friends and I were hoping to go skydiving over Labor Day, which is a Monday. TSC's website says they are closed Monday-Thursday, but their calendar had slots for several different jump times on Labor Day. We figured "Hey! Awesome. They are taking advantage of the Holiday." We booked the three of us to jump, paid $230+, signed our waivers, got our confirmation, and were set. We drove an hour out to TSC that Monday and discovered they were actually closed. Upon calling the facility, we were told that it was not their fault that their system showed that they were 1) open and 2) gave us a confirmation email and took our money and booked us.

The person on the phone (we'll call her Melanie, because that is her name), told us that in order to get a refund we would need to pay an additional $25 service fee that they would not waive (because this was a system problem, not theirs).

After my friend spoke with the owner (who hung up on her) we are left with the same story. The system failure is not their fault so they owe us nothing, and we cannot get a full refund for their mistake. We should have known better, I suppose. The three confirmation emails that claimed we were booked were also a fluke I assume.

Despite them not giving a sh** that the system showed they were open on Labor Day, they have since changed the calendar to show they were closed. Covering their tracks, of course.

This place is sh**. If you want to throw yourself out of a plane, I suggest looking elsewhere. They wasted a full day of ours and took money from us for a mistake that they made.

Thanksgiving Boogie...What A Way To Celebrate!

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

Be careful who you jump with if your female

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.
