Don't use this place


Skydive Phoenix Rated 1 by: robbyj78 on 2014-07-29

Pros: Cheap
Cons: Horrible service

The customer service is horrible. I purchased a groupon because I am new to the area and wasn't sure which skydiving place to try. Well, they were impossible to get a hold of and when I did finally got through they told me they were booked until after the groupon expired. I contacted groupon and they told me that as long as I made the appt before it expired it was all good. So I called back 2 days before it expired and made the appt but wanted to confirm with the managers that they knew of groupon's policy. They never called back (surprise, surprise when you have a bunch of incompetent people managing this place. Lets be honest, when they are constantly on groupon and living social its a huge indication that the business is in trouble). I called again and finally got through. They said they will not honor groupon's policy and that I had 90 days to make the appt and I shouldn't have waited until the last minute. I told them I didn't, I just couldn't ever make an appt. Then the lady on the phone proceeded to tell me then that's my problem with my schedule. If I could have gone anytime this wouldn't have been a problem (yeah, some people work for a living and it was a group of several people. Its kinda hard to get everyone's schedules in sync) Anyway, I told her I couldn't believe she wasn't honoring groupon's policy, she then proceeded to get snippy with me telling me I shouldn't have tried to schedule it two days before. I told her again, that that wasn't the first time I tried to contact them but it was my last ditch effort to use the groupon. So, needless to say I do not recommend this two bit operation. I would read the other reviews carefully. Many people have had this same experience or they made the appt but didn't actually get to jump until 4 hours later. BUYER BEWARE!!!

Amazing, Absolutely incredible experience! First time ever in an airplane, first time jumping out of one, also afraid of heights, not the best combination for skydiving. I went with a few friends from work. The well train professional staff made things easy and really fun. I've never been to any other sky diving place and I never will be SKYDIVE PHOENIX was incredible. I was there as a first time jumper but there were others who were regulars who had nothing but good things to say about them as they were able to compare Skydive Phoenix to other places. All in all, I'm Sooo very glad I decided to go through them rather then some of the other choices. I did a tandem Jump and was attached to Mike who kept me calm and joked around as we were taking off, making things better. I definitely recommend him. THANK YOU MIKE!! Also Thank you Skydive Phoenix for an amazing memory.

Great DropZone with friendly people, comfortable packing area, and amazing scenery (see Phoenix, sunsets, mountains, and more! Get away from looking at farms...). Everyone from tandems to experienced jumpers feel like part of the family. Caravan has arrived and loads turn quickly. Staff is helpful and available. If you come to the area and want to get away from the chaos of a large DZ, but still have confidence in the safety and staff, this is the place to go!

I moved to Maricopa and found Skydive Phoenix in Maricopa. I couldn't be any happier, great staff and rental gear for people above 230lb. The only thing that could be better is if they had a 2nd or bigger plane and I just heard the other day when I was there that they should be getting a 2nd plane this year.
