Thank you for a awesome day!
I bought a sky dive for my partners birthday he had been looking forward to it for months. We drove up from Liverpool on the morning of the sky dive excited for the day. We arrived and headed to the reception. Upon walking in we were told by a woman to put our face coverings on, as we are exempt for personal reasons (which we do not have to disclose) we explained this but we’re told no masks no entry and to ‘get out’. I had my exemption card with me, my partner had forgotten his as I was not doing the sky dive I gave my exemption card to my partner to show and was told by a very abrupt woman on the reception we can not share cards and once again for me to get out. I had to stand at the door like a child waiting for my partner. The woman then went on to question my partner as to why he was exempt challenging him weather he was asthmatic as he will not be able to do the sky dive he persistently told her his reasons where personal and he did not want to disclose. She continued to challenge and argue with him I felt awkward watching the situation from the door as I could see how uncomfortable it was making my partner. I have never in my life been spoken to so badly by anyone as that woman spoke to us that day. I had to go and sit on the bench by the cafe as I was absolutely disgusted we were getting spoken to by a woman who works for a company who we had just given £365 to!
While we were both waiting for my partner to be called he went and asked how long the waiting time normally is we were told 3 hours as he had been put to the bottom of the list which was absolutely fine we continued to wait just chatting on the bench, ordered ourselves some chips!
I brought my tea cup Maltese dog which sits in my handbag the next minute the same woman from the reception came running over to us shouting ‘no dogs allowed’ telling us we had went past 3 signs. We explained we didn’t think it would of been a problem as he sits inside my handbag and the whole venue is outside she said that he had to go. My partner was at the end of his tether with this woman and the way she was speaking to us we had driven up from Liverpool looking forward to the day and handed a lot of money over to be spoken to like we were children. My partner told the woman in question how he did not know what her problem was and how she was acting like a jobsworth. She said she was giving us our money back and we had to go! NO ONE deserves to be spoken to how she spoke to us! It costs nothing to be nice to people!
A dog which must of been one of the staff members was sitting by the reception we commented on how there was a dog already on the premises and she told us ‘rules are rules’. Upon arriving at the venue we were sent an email stating how only 3 spectators were allowed on the premises, there were families there of about 6 and lots of children running round so obviously that rule was overlooked as well as the dogs on the premises as there was a big one by the reception door.
I then went to the door of the reception and said to my partner to make sure she refunds the £100 deposit I had paid months previously too. She then shouted to me ‘yes love I’m doing it now’ patronising and sarcastic in a mocking voice!
After being spoken to like that she actually did not even refund the deposit and we then had to go back and speak to someone else to get that refunded to.
On the way out another staff member on site came up to us and also commented on how we had been treated and spoken to by this particular woman!
I will NEVER step foot in that place again!! That women needs to learn how to communicate with people nicely as she is working with the public as I literally have never been spoken to so bad by a company in my life and my partner has said the same!
She ruined our day and a birthday present!!!
Thank you everyone sure I will be back soon
My mate booked 24hrs before jumping (15.000ft) and we had a blast!!!
Thank you to Black Knights parachute center to take care of us from the start to the end -
Thank you again !!
I had every confidence in him and felt so safe. Everything was well organised.
Adhering to strict COVID 19 restrictions. I would recommend the experience to anyone.
If you feel nervous don’t be it’s fantastic.
Thanks for our day.
Skydive with my 16 year old daughter for her birthday 🙄
What an amazing morning, we both had a great time apart from I threw up after the parachute opened 😂
The Sky Dive was brilliant, I wasn’t scared about falling out. My instructor Dave 😂 kept saying it was his first time 😂, he missed one of the clips too just to wind me up and asked me if I felt strapped in enough!!! I said this straps loose and he just said sorry and laughed. The other instructors kept saying they didn’t know him and thought he was starting in the cafe that day.
The journey up on the plane to 15,000 feet seem to take forever. My instructor kept showing me the thing on his phone to say how high we were and he showed me at 7500 feet and I thought we were nearly there but we weren’t.
He was very funny and Katie’s guy was too, he kept doing her pony tail and complaining about her hair and telling me he didn’t know the guy I was with ? But when were up they were both reassuring and made us feel at ease.
They opened plane door and it felt very cold and windy. I was at the back so I watched Katie go first which was scary and we waved at each other and she was gone in the blink of an eye.
I didn’t really have any time to think and the next thing I know I was there sat about to fall out of the plane in the door way, I had to hold my legs under the plane body so I could feel it and put my head back into into Dave the instructors neck and then he manoeuvred us out and I open my eyes and just saw the countryside and it was very cold and I got brain freeze. The funny thing is I didn’t feel scared. Dropping to the earth was amazing.
Dave then tapped my shoulders and told me to hold my arms out and relax and I was falling very fast but I felt safe and okay and I could see the Earth before me but it was a very long way away and I didn’t feel like I was going to hit it any time soon￼. It was amazing.
The parachute deployed after 60 seconds and I felt sick quite soon afterwards. It was like being on a rollercoaster ride when you drop suddenly and your stomach just like leaves your body.
It really wasn’t me because I’m never sick and it really annoyed me.
I tried breathing a lot and looked at the scenery over the sea and everything but it didn’t go away and I was going to hurl so inevitable happened and I managed to get it over our shoulders so I didn’t go on anyone and then we landed and I was okay￼￼￼..
So im good to skydive but not good with a parachute 😂😂😂
I want to do it again without being sick it’s really annoyed because I wasnt scared at all.
We have raised over £800 for Parkinson’s so far.
If your thinking about doing it then do it
It’s amazing...and very safe xxx
Literally the best feeling in the world and my good I never thought I’d say that🤭😂
Thank you for giving me the experience of a life time... I’ll be back!
Best birthday ever, thank you so much to everyone at Black Knights! 😁
Then the instructors who make you completely at ease and confident.
And then the adrenaline!!
Thank you to Black Knights, who were really nice and informative.
Thanks for an amazing experience guys & thanks Elliot for getting me down in one piece
Rochelle and Elizabeth ❤❤❤
I added the photography package and 15000ft upgrade and wow - it was worth every penny!! If you're asked if you want to, I recommend you do because the videos and photos I have since seen are incredible, and the freefall felt like it was over in a second (it was actually 60secs at 15000ft!)
On an added note, they were excellent in following guidelines for the current covid situation.
So many thanks to the whole team at Black Knights, I'll be coming again one day - that's for sure!
Big thank you to both. Highly recommend this full experience.
The team here were so good, the weather gods were kind and it really was the most memorable day... thanks to all.
What an amazing experience though!!
My instructor Unai was absolutely amazing and made me feel so safe as did my cameraman Elliott. I would definitely recommend having your jump filmed 👍🏻
All staff there were friendly and encouraging and overall had a great day 😊
Thank you 😊
we did the 15,000ft tandem.
They made the perfect gifts!
Definitely upgrade to 15,000 package well worth it, and a big thank you to Lee Rhodes the instructor for putting me at ease and helping me fulfill a bucket list dream.
First ever sky dive what lovely friendly people there all are, made you feel relaxed
Special thanks to Unai for looking after me
And returning me safety to the ground x
Top day and definitely recommend to anyone!
Until the next one...😁
Was amazing would definitely go with these guys again if you always wanted to do this I would definitely recommend black nights roll on next one
And a special thank you to Chris and my photographer for the experience, something I’m definitely never going to forget! 🪂
I got paired with Ralph for my jump who was lovely and friendly, he helped ease my mind and was there to answer all questions I had throughout the duration of my time with him. He was a joker aswell which was nice as it lightened the mood for what felt like an anticipating journey going up in the plane to 15,000 feet where we would eventually jump out and fly through the sky! I felt completely comfortable and safe the whole time and he said from the start if there was any issues to let him know straight away so he could help sort them out. I’d genuinely recommend 100% doing a jump and give Ralph 20000/100 for how good he was with me!
I also want to say a big shoutout to Elliot who filmed my jump! I looked over the videos and all of the pictures, they are just completely spectacular 😁 it really leaves me with a great keepsake from an all round fantastic day! - Except when I got motion sickness but silly me was a little naive thinking there’d be no issues when I have been travel sick in the past! Hahaha!
If you are thinking of doing something completely out of the ordinary and fancy being a little dare devil, go to this place!
For everyone at Black Knights Parachute Centre.. thank you so much! X
Thanks to you all
Already want to do it again!
