Tour description provided by Viator

Are you up for it? Complete your visit to Las Vegas with a tandem skydive! You'll experience the adrenaline rush of a 60-second free fall, followed by a peaceful parachute descent. There's nothing like it, and you have the option of capturing your skydive on DVD.

When you arrive at the drop zone you will be equipped with a jumpsuit, soft helmet, goggles and harness. After being double-checked, it's onto the airplane to get ready for take off.

As the plane rolls down the runway and lifts off, you'll be embarking on one of life's truly special experiences. While you enjoy the beautiful views of Mount Charleston, Red Rock Canyon and the Las Vegas Strip, your pilot will be guiding the plane to the jump altitude, over two miles above the earth. As jump time approaches, your instructor will give you one final check and then, via four attachment points, he will secure you to his own equipment (each upper attachment is capable of holding 5000 lbs/2250 kg).

When the door opens and you exit the aircraft, most people say their fears stay in the plane. For over 45 seconds, falling at speeds in excess of 120 mph/193 kph, you will finally understand why the birds sing!

All too quickly, you will find the parachute opening and your adrenaline-charged free fall transforms into a peaceful parachute descent.
