Fast Attraction: Skydiving
Where: Start Skydiving – Middletown, Ohio
Daredevils take the ultimate leap of faith at Start Skydiving. A tandem jump has you exiting the plane at about 13,000 feet. When the plane door opens your heart will start pounding and adrenaline is pumping. Before you know it you’ve jumped out of a plane. After the initial shock of cold air, you survey the land below and realize just how far you are from solid ground. You’ll free-fall, which feels like floating, for roughly a minute before your tandem master pulls the parachute. Once the chute is deployed you have 5 exhilarating minutes of gliding in 5,500 feet. Start Skydiving is the #1 Drop Zone in the world rated by dropzone.com, so it’s the perfect place to take the plunge.
