How long does it take?
For weekend reservations allow yourself to spend the entire day. We encourage jumping on weekdays. Tandem classes last less than one hour. After the class, the time it takes for you to jump has a few variables such as weather, if we are busy that day, and when you signed in. Ideally a tandem jump can be completed in half a day. Please remember though, be prepared to spend the entire day.

Can I get a video/pictures?
Absolutely! Our media packages include high resolution digital stills and edited high definition video of your jump, on DVD.  As jumpers always say, “If it’s not on video, it never happend!”.

Can I jump by myself the first time?
No. At Tandem Base Jump, your jump must be tandem, in which you’re harnessed to the front of a highly experienced instructor. If you would like to continue to learn how to base jump on your own, special programs are available.  This program would include Several Tandem Base Jumps and then taking the Base Progression course at Skydive Idaho.  This course would consist of canopy skills training and practice, free fall training, and BASE specific canopy training, etc…  You must be prepared to do at least 100 skydives before attempting to BASE jump on your own.  When our instructors feel that you have reached all the requirements you will be able to take a First Jump Course with TandemBASE.  The FJC is four days long and is held at the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, ID.  Email TandemBASE for more info.

What’s the landing like?
Most landings are quite soft, with many people doing stand-up landings. Sometimes, especially on calm days, the forward speed of the parachute will provide you with a smooth sit-down sliding landing. To achieve a safe landing, the student MUST follow their instructors commands.

Can I jump again the same day if I like it?
Yes. We have a special offer for your second tandem. If you pay for it the same day that you make your first jump, it’ll only cost you $250.00

What if I come out and take the class and decide not to jump?
As discussed in the purchase agreements, there are no refunds. We will reschedule your jump at no cost if it is necessary due to weather. Should you decide not to jump you can pay a reschedule fee of $100.00.

Do you jump all year long?
Yes, weather permitting the jumping season never ends. Winter jumps are some of the most beautiful. Wind comes and goes and we can make jumps on most days year round.

Is it safe, can I get hurt?
BASE Jumping is not safe, but it can be done safely. BASE jumping is like any other extreme sport: there are inherent risks that require careful training and execution. Failure to follow that training can lead to serious injury or death. The equipment has improved considerably over the old-style round parachute and is so reliable that, when used properly, BASE jumping can be as safe or safer than any other extreme sport. . That being said, there is no perfect parachute, no perfect instructor, no perfect weather condition, and for that matter no perfect student.

Will I be a BASE jumper afterwards/Can I jump by myself afterwards?
You will have entered the world of base with your first base jump. Just as in skydiving, a single tandem does not prepare you for solo jumping, but is a start to whatever path you decide to take in jumping.  Special BASE progression programs are available and do include at least 100 skydives before BASE jumping solo.  Email for more info on BASE progression.

Can I jump a Building, Antenna, or Cliff too?
All tandem base jumps are made at the Perrine Bridge. Tandem base jump students are strongly advised against pursuing base jumping without additional solo base jumping training.  If you would like to Jump all Four objects in BASE (Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth) Contact us for details.

What type of payment do you accept?
