1 pointOctober 20th of 2020 was a very important milestone and birthday for a dear family friend of mine, who has wished for his 70th birthday to go skydive and as of yesterday, thanks to the incredible people here at Skydive Spaceland, not only did his wish come true - I achieved a dream that I had long forgotten about. The years are what you make of them, as the saying goes but especially in a hard year it can be easy to forget that celebrations are out there, good experencies and genuine people are out there that are energetic and want to share life with you too. The positivity here blows my mind still and I've waited since the jump to make sure I can review without this being an adrenaline-rushed review. Having said that, I'm still greatly impacted by the amount of professionalism, the absolute joy that came from everyone there and also - how everyone who was there yesterday was treated individually and was able to ask and share candidly so that however their own wishes and dreams for skydiving came about, that their needs were met in style. I cannot praise this place enough and the people who help not only educate past the general information, but really leave encouragement and an impact on you. Turning moments like these into a bliss that is indescribable. I realize this isn't listing specifics but everyone followed health codes for this year and were an absolute joy to be around. I left there feeling empowered for my personal experience and cannot wait to be in the air again. I'm certain my friend wants this to be a tradition and if anyone is reading this, is nervous or experienced, whatever your reasons are I really hope you will consider going here if you wish to skydive. Their ability to educate as well as encourage everyone was - well - still is really - quite inspiring! Two individuals who were so nervous beforehand came up to my friend and I afterwards and there was just this simply but pure joy and confidence radiating from them especially. I apologize for a long review but experiences that are worth your while, and the people who make them incredible, I feel it is important to share those experiences. Especially on the off chance someone is considering skydiving and found this location and page. I recommend Skydive Spaceland Dallas not only for location and experience and what you walk away with but I recommend them if you also want to meet some incredible people on your own adventure and journey.
1 pointOk so the first time I rocked up I was greeted by a girl on reception who was to be honest fairly nice. I was happy until the owner walked it and somehow all the morale in the room (including the staffs) was immediately sucked out, this set the tone for pretty much every visit since. The owner is probably the most arrogant, rude, and miserable person I've ever met. I really cannot see why anyone would return, especially as the prices are so stupidly high...... I think people only return because some of the staff there do just enough to sometimes make up for the managements incompetence and complete lack of customer service. Honestly if the owner had talked to me like I over heard her with others she'd have had a shot across the bows immediately, and unfortunately this attitude seems to have caught on with a couple of her staff. The cafe is crazy overpriced and to be honest an embarrassment, it also seeing pretty much zero customer service and effort. The aircraft aren't anything special, but honestly aren't bad either, no real variation but hey they work so can't complain too much. The manifest system is different, writing your name in pen on a board and then waiting to be added to a computer system (not too bad for me, but surely it would be easier to just check in at a manifest window?). The system that displays the manifest is only up in the cafe, and has no indication as to when your lift will be, you sort of just sit around checking the screen every 5 mins until you're on call. A few times I've overheard a member of staff (don't recall his name) briefing up jumpers like they were kids, not professional and if he'd done the same with me he'd have soon regretted it, but not my business and rather than cause waves, I bit my tongue on that one. Judging by the looks he got, a few people won't be jumping there again. The opening hours are stated but in my experience they are often late I could go on and on as I've seen some really terrible attitudes and bad service flying around there but I best just sum it up....... Expensive for what it is (much cheaper and better places available), customer service the worst I've seen (besides a few staff - sorry to you guys about this), Owner is obnoxious and arrogant (lowers the mood of the entire place), overpriced dz, overpriced cafe, no morale and flat atmosphere, not punctual and late to open On the plus side though, the wings bar next door is really good, cheap, nice ale, and run with a friendly service
