If you've chosen to purchase a gift certificate to Chicagoland Skydiving Center, or want to know use to use a gift, please review this guide.
Selecting the right type of skydive
If your gift recipient is a first-time jumper, select one of our tandem skydive gift options. You may see several different altitude options listed. Everyone will deploy parachutes at the same height above the ground, so the higher altitude you choose, the more freefall your recipient gets to enjoy. If you're not sure which to choose, go for the 14,000' Skydive option. This is by far the most popular type of jump.
Is a media upgrade worth it?
Nine out of ten tandem skydivers at CSC choose to add a media package to their jump. If you think your recipient will want skydiving photos or video, you can gift it! Simply select a gift product with photos or video. Don't worry if you're not sure what to pick. All skydivers will have the chance to make changes to jump altitude or media packages when checking in for their reservation.
What to buy for an experienced skydiver
If your gift recipient is a student in our Freefall University training program, go for one of the SkyBucks options. This is a dollar amount the skydiving student will be able to apply to their training jumps or purchasing equipment.
If you are gifting for a licensed skydiver, SkyBucks is a great way to go as well. These gift certificates can be used for jumps, special events, snacks, merchandise, and more. Trust us - money on account at the dropzone is the best thing you can give to a regular jumper!
How will I get the gift certificate?
We don't mail out physical gift cards. Instead, our system will deliver the gift certificate digitally, in the form of an e-mailed PDF attachment. If you want to send the certificate right to the recipient, enter their email address for delivery. If you'd rather keep your gift a surprise, or would like to give a physical gift - enter your own email address for delivery. You can forward the certificate at a later date or print it out and gift it in person.
