FAQ Tandem jump
Frequently asked questions
Is there a restaurant at GoJump in Gransee?
Yes, and we are famous for it too! Our bistro offers warm and cold food while dives are taking place. You can watch the parachute jumpers landing from the modern inside room or from the terrace. You are also welcome to bring your family and friends.
What physical abilities do I have to meet for a tandem skydive?
A tandem skydive does not expose you to real physical stress, so nobody needs a medical check or certificate to qualify for jumping. All persons of a least 140 cm height and 40 to 95 kgs weight (including trousers, T-shirt/sweater, shoes) can jump.
For persons between 95 and 110 kg we are asking for a surcharge of € 25,- and we need some wind to safely land them. Fortunately, at our Gransee Drop Zone wind is more than sufficient most of the time.
Persons with medical issues such as recent disc prolapses might be advised to seek advice of their doctor prior to jumping.
Does GoJump have vouchers for a tandem skydive in Berlin?
A new year - a new office! We will move into our new office in Berlin probably beginning of April 2019. Until then, we are by phone (030 24534030), from Monday to Friday from 10h to 18h, reachable for you.
You can order GoJump vouchers conveniently online at any time, by phone (030 24534030) or by email (info@GoJump.de). All bookings will be processed promptly and the vouchers will be send out the same day.
Can I wear my glasses / contact lenses?
No problem. We have special "Over-glasses" for wearers of glasses so that they can see as much as possible.
Shall I make an appointment at GoJump?
Yes, please. We would appreciate it if you pre-book 1 to 2 weeks beforehand. Summer weekends are particularly busy and we wouldn't want you to have a long wait. For this reason, we would prefer for you to reserve your personal tandem dive in Gransee by telephone.
Our office is available from Monday to Friday from 10 am until 6 pm and the phone number is +49 30 245 34 030.
What does Skydive Berlin mean?
Skydive is a word from the USA and means jumping from a plane using a tandem parachute. Tourists therefore often ask about Skydive Berlin and then do a parachute jump at our Skydive Center in Berlin-Gransee.
What will happen with my tandem dive if the weather is bad in Gransee?
Bad weather for the tandem dive in Gransee means low cloud and rain. Low clouds mean that we cannot see the landing zone soon enough and rain can be unpleasant when doing a freefall. Try it out for yourself – put your head out of the window into the wind when driving down the motorway at 150 km/h ... the raindrops will be pretty sharp. Otherwise, there are no major problems with weather, unless the wind blows very fiercely and then we would temporarily suspend the jumps in Gransee for safety reasons. If your tandem dive cannot take place, we will arrange another appointment with you, free of charge.
What should I wear for the tandem dive?
Whatever you feel comfortable in and what you would normally wear for that time of year. So in summer you can just wear a T-shirt and shorts – and perhaps jeans and a loose sweatshirt in spring and autumn. Proper shoes without hooks – sports shoes are ideal. We will give you a parachute suit to wear on top that will protect you from the cold and particularly from getting grass stains when you land.
How old do you need to be for a tandem dive with GoJump?
There are very few legal restrictions. Our minimum age is 12 so that the candidate knows what the freefall involves and can prepare themselves adequately. But there is no upper age limit. We have already dived with pensioners over 90 years old. The golden rule is: if you feel fit enough, you can take on a tandem parachute jump. Please note that anyone under 18 years of age needs written consent from both legal guardians.
