Both my adult sons ages 25 and 39 skydived and had an exceptionally awesome time. We went on this trip so I could make some memories with my boys and we definitely did that. The first sky diving for them and I was there to watch. Everyone was very good in explaining everything and they had an awesome experience. I still see my son showing the video to people 3 months later.
N Zone does it the best. My husband wears glasses so for those who are wearing glasses, one recommendation, test the glasses you get to wear over your existing glasses and adjust them while on ground before taking flight. My husband found his very tight and was uncomfortable. Or just wear lenses!
