Came to the dz with a number of friends. Staff made us feel right at home and part of their family. Weather came in so we joined the locals for some night life and had a blast. Owner is a old school skydiver that knows skydiving should be fun. Winds came up and he shut the tandems down for safety. Over all a great place to have fun. Give them a try you will not be sorry

As an early Christmas present, my fiance's dad bought both of us tandem jumps on groupon. We brought 2 other friends with us up from Atlanta. We had planned on spending the day there, doing our jump, grilling burgers, and having some drinks since it was a 2 hour drive. When we arrived we were told it was a 10k jump and 2 of us forked out another $120 to upgrade to 14k. After about 30 mins we geared up and did our little class. The ride to altitude was ok the instructors were pretty fun and John pretty much convinced me that becoming an instuctor is what I wanted to do for a living. The jump went well, the video's weren't very good. We didn't get a chill vibe from the staff, they were too busy churning out tandems, so we packed up and drove home. I'm quite happy we chose to do our AFF/A-license jumps at a much more friendly and fun DZ closer to ATL that had way better reviews.

First off let me say that the last 2 reviews on CSC are from the SAME person and the other doesn't speak english well enough to have an understandable conversation. I was sitting right in front of the people who brought in the expired groupon. If they were smart enough to hit every website they could find about skydiving and write bad reviews I imagine they are smart enough to read an expiration date. I am a regular at CSC and enjoy my experience EVERY time. Go to the grocery store and try to use an expired coupon....see what they say. All in all don't be an idiot and don't expect people to give you special treatment due to an inability to follow guidelines. Want to jump out of a plane? There is no better place around. Just look at the reviews that don't include groupon in them and see what you get =) Blue skies.

Long story short: DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY.

Longer story: I WISH I would've read the reviews before I went. The first problem was that we could NEVER get a person on the phone to make a reservation. And when we finally did, and book the date, we were treated HORRIBLY by the owner when we arrived on location. He is very degrading when talking to customers. He wanted a $100 upcharge when we arrived on location on top of what we've paid on groupon, because he said it was "groupon's policy" not "his policy" for any expired groupons. When I made the appointment (well before the expiration date), the female receptionist told us that even though the jump date is 3 days after the expiration date, it shouldn't be a problem since they are running the "in-house special" of $149 per person price, which is the same price on groupon.

When we arrived after driving for 2 hours, the owner told us a different story and was belligerent and insistent that we pay the $100 upcharge. This policy is NOT listed anywhere on Groupon or on their page. They must honor the price that's been paid. So if anything, the most they could have charged us is $50 per person because the normal price for jump at that location is $199. Then, he told us that we could purchase the jumps for $149 a person (the in-house price) and then take it up with groupon to get a refund. There was NO WAY we would even consider jumping with him at this point because he was SO RUDE and belligerent.

Since we decided not to make the jump, we asked for the signed papers back (which was the agreement we signed to say that we wouldn't sue the company in the case of injury or death during the jump). We wanted this back because we weren't going to do any business with them, and we didn't want him to have any papers containing our personal information such as our date of birth and address but he said "no. My building, my papers" and told us to get off his property.
There are far better companies around Atlanta (one near Macon, one in North Georgia) who will treat their customers with respect and outstanding customer service. This place is not one of them.

DON"T DO BUSINESS WITH THESE GUYS!!!!

I have ordered my jump from Amazon and was pretty excited about it.
I came all the way from Atlanta for my bucket list check mark.
The facility is not impressive it is small hangar with few small planes.

They told me that the jump that is included in my deal is from 10000ft and that I can upgrade to 12000 for $30 or $14000 for $60. I decided to do 12000 and paid $30.

After couple of hours spending in the hangar and signing TONS of paperwork that there is no way you can read unless you come there for couple of days.

When I was all ready to go they said the weather is not good, we are not gonna jump. This is OK. Weather is not in our control.

The instructor told me to talk to the lady on the desk and she will explain me everything. I asked her what are my options. She said that I can reschedule anytime I want. I asked her what if I want to cancel she said to cancel through Amazon and then call her to cancel the extra $30 I paid. My wife and my kids were standing next to me and heard that clear.

Today I canceled it with Amazon with no problem and called Chattanooga Skydiving Company for my $30 cancellation. The owner answered and said, we don't do refund. The lady works for me and you are mistaken, she never said that. At some point he just hang up on me!!!

Do you really want to deal with this kind of customer service? The owner has no idea what his employees do. The owner of the business acts like this?!

Can you imagine what else is broken in that company? Do you want to check it with your life?
