Anyone SkyJump from the Strat??

The 40mph speed is kind of a drag, especially after having gone skydiving. Seems like it would still be pretty fun, as it is as close to base jumping as I will ever get.

So, anyone try it yet?

Well, I guess no one has...until now!


That was just before the jump. My wife also jumped. the initial sensation is not unlike what you feel when you exit the plane on a skydive. There's no "roller coaster" feel in your gut at all.

Seems to be pretty popular, there was a constant flow of people making the jump.

I jumped twice back in August. It was absolutely awesome, and quite worth the $160.

Just saw a video online, that looks pretty intense.

My sister did it when they first opened, and she said it was pretty cool.. But having bungee jumped in the past, this seemed to slow for me.

Instead, I went ziplining in Bootleg Canyon at BC Flightlines (http://bcflightlines.com/), which is INSANE!

I did it, and I loved it even though I hate rollercoasters.
