- Stunning views of Pocono Mountains and New York skyline
- Incredible freefalls speeds up to 200km/hour
It doesn’t matter if it’s your first jump, or your hundredth, a tandem skydive in the Pocono Mountains will lay on the thrills big time. Nothing beats the rush that comes from stepping out of the plane into thin air, and then freefalling for up to a minute at speeds of around 220km/hour. The adrenaline surge is incredible, and then once the instructor pulls the cord, you can relax and take in spectacular views of the beautiful Poconos, the Delaware Gap and all the way to that iconic New York City skyline.
The beauty of taking a tandem skydive is that you only need to do two things: take that first step outside, and tuck in for landing. It takes just 10 minutes of training and you’re ready to go, because the instructor takes care of all the rest. The plane carries over 20 people too, so if you want to jump as part of a group of friends, you can all jump at the same time! Plus - for a small supplement, you can have a videographer flying opposite you during freefall, so your feat of daring will be captured for you to watch over and over again. So try not to look scared.
