About 30 minutes outside of Houston is a place where you can open your wings, and, quite literally, soar through the skies. For an experience that you’ll always remember, here’s what you should know about Skydive Spaceland:
If You’re a First-Time Jumper
If this is your first time strapping a parachute to your back and jumping out of a plane, it’s likely that your nerves are high. However, while skydiving can seem a bit terrifying, it’s an adrenaline pumping activity that will leave you with a rush you’ll be dying to get back. For first timers, your jump will be tandem with a trained professional, so you have nothing to worry about in terms of technical know-how. However, you do get to pull your own ripcord, which is a exhilarating experience. Not only that, but you’ll also get a professionally made video. Oh, and did we mention that the jump includes a 120 MPH free fall??
Why Spaceland is the Place to Fly
There are a lot of skydiving companies in the world. However, skydiving isn’t a sport with which you want to take a lot of risks, or just go for the cheapest option. At Spaceland, they have all the perks, ranging from training to comfort and beauty. The skydiving takes place in a private 134-acre facility, large groups are always welcome, they’re open seven days a week, there’s a covered spectator area, showers and laundry facilities are available, lockers for safe gear storage are up for use, all skydiving equipment is state-of-the-art, instructors come from around the world to train at Spaceland, and the instructors are all kind, friendly, and patient.
Prices and Group Rates
Skydiving is an expensive activity, but totally worth it (take it from someone who’s done it). At Skydive Spaceland, weekend rates are $219, and weekday rates are $199. If you want to do a second tandem jump, the rate is reduced to only $99. If you pay online or on the phone ahead of time, you’ll save $20 bucks per person. Or, if you make your reservation with a $50 deposit to guarantee you’ll show up, then you’ll get $10 off your reservation cost.
If you’ve already gone skydiving and know that you love it and want to do it again and again, you can sign up for a solo skydiver training program. For this program, the cost is $60 for the initial training, $150 for each jump (16 are required), $95 for a jump at lower altitude, and free for your Graduation Jump.
