Extreme Sports - skydiving
Thanks Laurence for the feedback - the experienced & qualified instructors always maximise your skydiving freefall time without compromising safety, we're sorry if on this occasion this was a little too extreme for you. Skydiving sits proudly at the top end of extreme sports, I've done it, loved it and recommend everyone should take the jump!
In case anyone is getting a little confused, this experience page is for a parachuting course where the chute opens automatically. Laurence's review below is for a tandem skydiving experience.

Did not want to die
I did not like this experience. The instructor left it far too late to open the parachute and i thought i was going to die.
Apart from this it was fine.
