Having read Andrew Butler and other reviews from social media from the same day I’m afraid I have to agree. I witnessed Sharon’s behaviour throughout the day it was appalling. The t+c’s said you are allowed 3 MAXIMUM in the spectators area. Yet if she (checked her CCTV as she says she does. For (the safety of everyone) she will have seen multiple families with 7+ spectators. All of which didn’t have ANY temperature checks throughout the day. I know I never got my temperature checked. sorry but whether she has a hearing problem or not. She definitely is lying about her safety procedures. Not only for the safety of the public jumping. But also for the safety of the professional skydivers. Please, please don’t listen to her replies to comments. She clearly is just trying to distract from the appalling customer service she has. My poor wife of 60 was told she had to use the one way system for the cafe. Yet there were multiple families coming out the opposite way. (Again if Sharon checks her CCTV as much as she says she does she will have seen this) yet my wife was treated appallingly.

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Sharon was so helpful in finding me a short notice slot, and very friendly and accommodating on the day. It is a very organised and slick operation and the instructors are great with their guests. We purchased the video package which is expensive but absolutely worth every penny as the shots and film are so high quality. We even received a really short montage video with highlights which was perfect to share with friends and on social media. Thanks to Elliott the videographer who was wonderful and very charismatic. Great facilities for spectators and a good cafe. Covid measures throughout are very thorough which is appreciated. We’ll be back soon! Thank you!

Fantastic tandem skydive with my instructor Chris - great person who puts you at ease and is highly experienced. Alan made great photos and videos. Highly recommended experience!
I went on my first skydive today. The whole experience was amazing, the staff were wonderful and the atmosphere was friendly. Many thanks to Chris having me strapped to him for 10 minutes and Alan for the excellent videography

Unbelievable experience enjoyed everything about it good laugh with the instructor an camera man Ralph an eliot would happily do it all over again I can see why people get hooked on doing this can’t even describe the feeling it gives you , you literally have to do it to know
16:10 18 Jul 21
It was an awfully long wait due to short staff got there at 9am didn't jump till around 2 but the weather was amazing. Unai my instructor was amazing he made me feel safe and at ease. Defo recommended 👌
14:33 18 Jul 21
by far the best experience. my dive was for charity. from booking to landing was easy and hassle free. my instructor was awesome. Chris Occomore, legend!!!!! calmly spoke to me from the fit of my harness, the flight, the jump and landing. completely reassuring, a great personality who made you feel relaxed so you could enjoy the whole experience. if ever you were to pluck up the courage to do this these guys are the go to guys.

Review - Black Knights Parachute Centre*1 Star *Whilst the overall experience and the parachuting was great, unfortunately I have to give a one star review simply due to Sharon Beeson who works on reception. Her behaviour and customer service throughout the whole day was not only unprofessional but affected the experience of all customers on the day.For context, the weather was clear skies and sunny with temperatures of 28 degrees Celsius. The customers were waiting in the midday sun for 45 minutes with no shaded areas. Sharon decided to take the temperatures of the candidates checking in.A candidate had a high temperature due to the heat of the sun and then screamed in front of the whole waiting area,“ YOUR TEMPERATURE IS 40 DEGREES! PLEASE LEAVE THE PREMISES AND GO AND COOL DOWN IN YOUR CAR!”This happened to multiple customers in the queue due to the high temperatures on the day. Not only was this embarrassing for those customers, it is also not appropriate protocol to simply send someone to a car to cool down from COVID! There was no respect nor confidentiality. The customer service from Sharon is appalling. The way she behaved seemed obvious that she was full of self-importance and wanted to cause a scene.From reading similar reviews it seems that Sharon is a common cause of problems throughout the company.#GetANewReceptionist
The organisation as a whole is fantastic, the staff are great the instructors and camera guys are friendly have a good sense of humour making the experience the best.
I would certainly urge everyone to take up this experience don't delay!!!
What an amazing experience. Unai my tandem instructor is half bird I’m sure of it 😊 15,000ft jump and loved every second of it. Amazing people and I recommend it to everyone.I forgot the Irish lads name who filmed me jumping with all the excitement going on but he’s a top lad and very funny 🥳 10/10
Absolutely amazing. To anyone reading this and debating whether or not to do the jump - DO IT! I did a charity jump for Mind. I was tandem with Chris & Elliot captured the moments. Absolutely loved it. 15,000 feet. Go big or go home 🪂🛩
I made my first jump today and I can’t describe the feeling. The best action adventure experience I have ever had, the team was very professional and I will definitely recommend the service they provide. I will do my best to have another jump with BLACK KNIGHTS as soon as possible. Thank you for the great gift!!!
One word AMAZING!! Me and my son did the 15,000ft jump today and it was the best experience ever. Shout out to my instructor Unai who was the best, I was so nervous but he put my mind at ease and made me feel comfortable I’m even thinking of doing another. Cannot fault anything about the day from start to finish. Definitely worth doing.
20:32 15 Jul 21
What a breathtaking experience. Did a 15000ft jump as gift for my 40th :DStaff friendly and professional. You can sense once you are at the briefing and later on with instructor, that you are in safe hands. Clear instructions and then, well - unforgettable experience.Thanks again and I hopefully see you soon!
Amazing experience would recommend everyone to have a go xx
what a fantastic experience! I had the honour of doing a charity skydive for Papyrus at the wkd and loved every minute of it! Can't thank both Lee and Elliot enough for making the whole experience unforgettable, their professional and friendly manner put me at ease making the jump even more fun.
Did a tandem skydive here on Sunday, was my second visit and second jump and all I can say is my experience this time round was much better! Loved it. My instructor Chris was fab, (I think he deserves a pay rise) I would highly recommend the centre and the instructor. Top tip.. pay extra for it to be filmed.
A massive thank you to all the staff at the centre. From checking in to making the jump I felt well looked after. Each of the team had loads of patience and used humour to help me feel at ease. I was way out of my comfort zone and extremely nervous the whole day and you helped me achieve something remarkable. Special shout out to my instructor Tony who was incredible the whole way through, and also to my camera man who's name I forgot - absolutely stellar! Sky diving is probably not something I will be doing again, but what an absolutely amazing experience. Thanks so much x

Really friendly group of people... brilliant experience.... Cheers Ralph for talking me through everything.... Oh.... And getting me down safely 👍
16:43 10 Jul 21
Amazing. Thank you especially to instructor Tony, professional, warm, very kind 🙏
12:32 10 Jul 21
To be frank, the bloke who accosted me on a public footpath was beyond rude. The key word there was PUBLIC.
Wow….. what a day, I have never been so scared in my entire life to do something. Nick my instructor soon put me at ease, and can I just say I feel like you saved me for real today…. That mid air panic, and you were just so calm and reassuring. Seriously thank you, and thank you for checking back on me. Them up side down spins with the parachute though 😂 good job I had my eyes shut !!! And the lovely Irish cameraman ( I forgot your name sorry, hectic day) did a fantastic job of capturing every moment. Seriously thank you. Iv never felt prouder. A day I will never forget 🪂
An amazing experience made even more special by my tandem instructor Ralph, top man!!!
all staff are so friendly and welcoming, would highly recommend. Not much waiting around and very informative at all times .
An amazing day, Thank you .
for some this is a once in a lifetime experience,for me it was to raise money for Ronald McDonald House but after being greeted by that lovely fella Jack on reception to landing perfectly with my brilliant instructor Paul,I would do it again a million times over..in fact,I'm now hooked and that is down to the professional, personal and friendly service that only the Black Knights can offer.
faultless, five stars and I'll see you again in a few months.
Had an absolute blast with Unai! would definitely go back x
Absolutely brilliant really professional highly recommend
12:35 06 Jul 21

OMG I have just done my first tandem jump. Unai was my instructor, he made sure I felt safe and most of all had an amazing time. Everybody was fabulous and more importantly we raised money for Derian House.🥰
Such lovely staff. I had Lee looking after me on my charity dive, he set my mind at ease and looked after me. Was a great experience 😁
Friendliest staff ever! Really put you at ease and make sure you properly enjoy the whole experience with them 😁 Sam took my son up for his 18th Birthday and he made his first parachute jump amazing fun!!
15:29 02 Jul 21
Had the most amazing time completing my first 15,000ft tandem skydive today for charity with Ralph (my instructor) and Alan (my cameraman).My experienced team kept me well informed throughout, super lovely and made it easy to learn and ask questions if extra help is needed.Overall I've had a fantastic experience, lovely day, and I know I'll be back soon 🪂
Absolutely amazing first skydiving experience! The whole team at Black Knights are wonderful. But I cannot go without saying a big thank you to the legend instructor that is Unai! Unai completely put me at ease, as he was very informative, funny and just overall a lovely gentleman! I loved the experience so much that I've already booked again for August! Can't wait to do it all over again! Thank you so much Black Knights Parachute Centre! 😁
11:23 02 Jul 21

17:56 28 Jun 21
I did a 15000 ft tandem skydive and it was amazing!! Everyone was really friendly and was given clear instructions at all times which made the experience easy to enjoy as a first time jumping off a plane, not knowing what to expect and also being scared to do it. Glad I went through with it because it's an absolutely incredible experience. Thank you Tony for the fun skydive! Will definitely do this again now that I know how it feels and will be able to be more relaxed and enjoy it even more next time ^^
13:26 28 Jun 21
Loved my skydive & thank you to Ralph who made my experience so amazing. Can’t wait to come and do another !
I will give 5* went with a couple of friends and had the experience of a life time. my sky dive instructor Tony was a brilliant guy and helped me get over the fear of heights. never in a million years would I think I'd be jumping out of a plane but I will be doing it again with black Knights. absolutely amazing.
16:39 26 Jun 21
What can I say - Absolutely Amazing !!Thank you so much especially to my instructor Chris, but to the whole team for making our 1st Skydive the most fantastic experience.Loved it and will be booking tomorrow to come again.If you haven’t given it a go - DO IT !!
15:46 26 Jun 21
In the middle of nowhere but instructors are great everything is straight forward and provided you listen to what they say it all goes smoothly
Amazing amazing amazing!! Can’t recommend this place enough. Everyone was so up beat and friendly yet very very safe. Will be booking again ASAP 🪂🪂🙌🏻🙌🏻🤩🤩
Bit of a belated review, did a skydive on the 4th June, it was absolutely amazing, everything was so professional. Ralph my instructor was fantastic, and he has even managed to persuade my girlfriend who is terrified of flying, to give it a go on the 9th July 👍 can’t wait to see this. Hope your working that day for her Ralph haha
I did a tandem skydive for charity over the weekend and it was incredible! Right from arriving at the centre I automatically felt reassured and put at ease, the team there is amazing. I had Tony as my instructor, and he was brilliant, he put all my nerves to rest and made the whole experience so enjoyable. Also, special mention to my cameraman, Levi, too. He did an absolutely amazing job documenting my experience and the videos and photos he captured will stay with me forever. Thank you both and the rest of the team for one of the best experiences ever. I will certainly be back!
Had the most amazing day, thanks to James hodgson, and the black nights team.Every-time I watch my video I cry, so emotional.Didn’t think I could do it but I did so proud of myself ❤️
15:49 20 Jun 21
Just got back from doing a 15,000ft tandem skydrive and I have to say it was brilliant! All the staff really friendly, I changed my mind about having it recorded and they were so helpful helping me to choose which to go for. Ralph really looked after me and put me at ease, he was clear in his instruction all the way through. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Thanks again to all the team and especially Ralph!
I jumped today with Unai, he was great he reassured me and made me feel less nervous and he even let me steer lol. We landed bang on the X great experience would 100% do it again and recommend it too everyone to try it
Amazing day, amazing staff!
12:40 20 Jun 21
Huge thanks to Chris Occomore and the BKPC team for my tandem skydive experience yesterday. I raised over £500 for The Christie and had an awesome time. I felt reassured and very safe and my goodness what a buzz! You're all awesome and thanks to Alan my cameraman for a great video and photos I will treasure always. Stay safe and thanks again x
What an amazing day! Completed a tandem dive for Ronald MacDonald House and the whole experience was smooth, professional and just awesome! We upgraded to 15,000 feet, well worth it, and hit a top free fall speed of 161mph!!! My instructor Lee Rhodes was outstanding and I felt in very safe hands... what are you waiting for... book yourself in!!!
What an amazing experience. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the instructors are incredibly professional. Special mention to my tandem instructor Lee Rhodes who made things really clear and concise which went some way towards calming my nerves. I would highly recommend Black Knights Parachute Centre.
22:20 19 Jun 21
Honestly the best day. The only thing was I thought the price for the video was too much. £125 for a 60 second video? £2 a second? I know it's a big moment but that's silly money. Still a great day and the instructor was great so it's still top Marks for me
21:18 19 Jun 21
Brilliant..well organised.toilets and food and drink.no dogs allowed though.
Great bunch of instructors absolutely recommend you try these guys out
22:19 18 Jun 21
Absolutely stunning experience and warm treatment by all staff members.Special thanks to my instructor Unai who did fantastic job. Its once in a lifetime experience ... unless someone sponsor me to dive again 😂There is no Uber network at site so staff even helped us to book Taxi to train station ... all in all a day spent well 😀
14:31 18 Jun 21
Did a charity tandem jump today. As I have a neurological condition I was a little apprehensive but all those thoughts were soon dismissed by the actions of all the staff and especially Chris my tandem 'coach', he was superb and I felt very relaxed throughout the whole experience. A big thankyou to all and not forgetting Ashley my camera man, fantastic all of you. Thank you for a truly awesome experience 😃
17:22 15 Jun 21
All the Staff are helpful and friendly. The instructors are absolute professionals. It's a well oiled machine this place!

19:44 12 Jun 21
Most amazing skydive ever!!! Unai was super polite and gave me the best experience ever!!! This is a late review but wanted to highlight that I had a fab time and I was so well looked after!!! Loved it!
12:55 12 Jun 21
10:38 12 Jun 21
Amazing the tandem instructor Hodgson was a Legend 💪🛩
Staff are great and always ready to help make the experience a good one.
I got told on the day that I was going sky diving for my 30th birthday (it was a present- mixed emotions at the time 😅 but loved it in the end 🥰). I was so nervous as I didn’t feel prepared mentally to jump out of a plane at 15,000 feet. Unai was reassuring me the whole time which made it feel a tiny bit better and he just made everything look so easy which again is reassuring. When I first jumped out of the plane I was nervous and scared for about 3 seconds and then I absolutely loved it. I would recommend it to everyone and it really isn’t as bad and scary as it looks! Don’t let the nerves get the better of you and give it a go!
Brilliant experience and they look after you
10:36 10 Jun 21
Great skydiving venue, me and my friend jumped 15,000 ft from the sky for a total of 1 min freefall, was amazing and really ticked off something on our bucket list
08:55 10 Jun 21
I bought this for my girlfriends 30th as a surprise and whilst she was nervous at first ended up loving it! The staff were great and really accommodating, the whole experience was very professional and efficient. Highly recommend!
What an unbelievable experience, the instructors and office staff were superb from the off! My Jump instructor was Unai and he was top class! I will be back and have my sights set on the AFF course 👌 thanks again!
09:38 08 Jun 21
10 ouot of 10 would skydive again but I did die once and it was bad. But would reccomend
06:29 08 Jun 21
Great organisation. My husband loved it.
Absolutely incredible team! My sister and I did a skydive at the weekend and all the staff were brilliant, kind, calming and hilarious! My instructor Unai was absolutely ace, he made the whole thing so fun and I loved the whole experience! Thanks!
Had the most incredible few hours today , fantastic place and lovely friendly people special thanks to Tandem instructor Chris for making me feel safe and at ease x
16:21 06 Jun 21
Today I did my second skydive with my favorite instructor Unai and it was absolutely brilliant. Lovely staff, makes you feel so comfortable. I will definitely do it again
07:02 05 Jun 21
We had a great time and would recommend the following people for a skydive
09:16 04 Jun 21
What an absolutely fantastic experience, my wife bought this for me for my 50th and I love every minute of it, I first jump last Monday and enjoyed it that much I did it again yesterday, i must say that the whole set up and team are fantastic, Sharon on reception was very helpful and funny and my instructor Chris Davison was very reassuring and explained everything clearly, i cannot recommend the Black Knights enough and can't wait for my next visit.Thanks again guys
Thank you so much for the best experience ! I was absolutely petrified the whole day but everyone was so nice and super patient which put me at ease, especially my instructor Unai, who was so professional and talked me through everything which made me feel comfortable and made the experience so enjoyable! Thank you so much !! I loved it in end end and would definitely consider doing it again!
What an amazing experience. The whole set up is really well organised, the instructions are clear and safety is paramount. All the instructors are really friendly and put you at ease instantly. Lee, my tandem buddy is probably deaf from my screams on the way down, but he was fantastic from start to finish, making sure the experience was beyond brilliant! I would do it all again in a heartbeat!
I did a tandem skydive here with my brother and best friend on bank holiday Monday. The staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout. We arrived at 8:00AM and by 9:00AM we had completed our tandem! The weather was lovely.
I would also like to state that Ralph was great! I expected to be nervous when I was up in the plane about to jump but I did not feel nervous or scared, just excited. I would 100% do a skydive here again and for anyone considering such I would say go for it! They make you feel extremely safe and are incredibly helpful. Do not overthink, just enjoy the feeling as it is unlike any I have ever experienced before.
Thank you to all the staff who made our visit one to remember.

wow did sky dive today the team were brilliant chris the instructor put me at ease and was very patient elliot the photographer was polite and engaging ten out of ten and will defo recomend xx
absolutely amazing. you are well looked after. can't thank them enough for the best experience xxx
07:22 02 Jun 21
The dive was great, but beforehand I asked if there was any reason to wear the Buff head covering during the dive because I didn't want to cover my mouth, and was told there wasn't. It turns out there was, because I left with what I think is a perforated eardrum. They also gave me goggles with a hole very close to one eye, and 3 days later it is still injured. Wouldn't trust them again.
my 16 year old daughter did her 1st skydive yesterday and loved every second.
Huge thank you to Sharon for gently persuading her to upgrade to the 15,000ft she was so glad she did afterwards and huge shout out to her instructor Tony who made the whole experience amazing.
The fab photographer got the most fanrastic pics and videos which she will always cherish.
I'm sure this won't be her last skydive so we will hopefully see you guys again.
Wow wow amazing, first time and definitely won't be the last time jumped from 15,000ft what a experience, the staff were brilliant and my instructor unai was excellent he made the jump so memorable , well worth having it on video and pics, I will definitely be returning
12:28 01 Jun 21
My partner loved it! This was his second time 👌
First time doing a sky dive & it most definitely will not be my last.
Thankyou to Chris my instructor who made it so amazing!
I think the weather really made today.
I’m honestly still buzzing 🥰🪂🥰
15,000ft definitely recommend purchasing the DVD & photos.
If it’s your first time enjoy the jump and fall it go’s so fast. ✌🏻🪂
19:34 31 May 21
Just wanna thank Arran for the best experience of my life!! Definitely was a 100/10 because of you!☺️Made it so much fun and made me feel at ease, I was quite a-bit nervous before - I love height and love the adrenaline I get from going down zip wires, walking over ropes between trees but I’ve never been any higher than a standard tall tree height and have never not been clipped in to something secure so going from that to free falling out of a freaking plane at 15,000 feet was a massive difference! But he made me feel comfortable all the way throughout, apart from the few second of accepting that I was going to die - because I were facing the sky instead of the ground after throwing ourselves out of the plane, thinking about the guy showing us the educational video saying it was bad to fall backward - but after we righted ourselves and were on our fronts, I relaxed and had so much fun, and would definitely do it again and again if I could afford it! It is expensive but it’s definitely worth every penny for once in a lifetime opportunity!!
What a experience could not fault it I did the 15000 feet jump with a top speed of 182 mph I had Lee Rhodes as my instructor and he was great all I can say is I will be going back many thanks
Blissed out 💙 15000ft * 161 mph 🤩
A huge thank you to everyone at Black Knights who made this possible, especially to my instructor Lee - you're simply the best 🙌🏻🍻 I cannot wait to do it again! 😍
17:34 31 May 21

Awesome experience, super well organised and amazing crew throughout.
15:09 31 May 21
I did my Skydive this morning and had a wonderful experience. The instructors made me feel really comfortable and explained everything carefully. Lovely staff and a professional yet relaxing environment. Thank you!
Bought for my husband’s birthday - 15,000 ft tandem; absolutely brilliant instructors and staff generally, from start to finish. He loved the experience and it is definitely worth getting the video! Fantastic day!
09:32 31 May 21
I had engaged in a tandem skydive, where the staff were more than helpful and explained the details of the jump perfectly. I really enjoyed this experience and look forward to doing it again!!
09:31 31 May 21
Incredible experience! All staff are lovely! My instructor was Chris O & he was fab! Talked me through every step of the way and even gave me a tour of where we were flying over! 10000% recommend!
Did the 15000ft jump today and the whole experience start to finish was amazing. Everything was really well organised, woman on reception was lovely, hardly had to wait at all until it was my turn to jump (though the glorious weather we had probably helped) and my instructor Arran was awesome. I was a nervous wreck and he made me feel so at ease and calmed my nerves making me laugh, explained everything properly and made sure i was happy and knew what to expect at each stage. Thank you for an incredible experience!
22:09 30 May 21

From start to finish this was by far the best experience of my life,decided to upgrade to 15000ft for an additional £25, worth every penny,Tony was the tandem guy I jumped with and he was very chaty,thourough and professional and made me feel at ease and gave you all the instructions for a good skydive.cant wait to go and to it again which is a definite 👍😀,
I completed the 15,000ft Charity sky dive yesterday. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE !!! 170MPH !!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes when Lee showed me his watch at the end !!! the staff were amazing, it was busy so there was a little wait but from the minute you start the briefing the instructors are mega. My instructor Lee Was amazing, we had a laugh and he explained everything so clearly to make the experience 100%. Not at one point did I feel uncomfortable, thanks Lee & Team I’d definitely recommend! And if you can get Lee as your instructor, your in for a laugh at the same time! Thanks guys xx

What a rush top instructors would highly recommend black knight's parachute school thanks for helping me raise some much needed money for my scout group and paying a tribute to my uncle John
So, this is the second sly dive @ 15000 ft I've done from here & both experiences have been unreal. this last one in particular because Mark Collins was a fantastic instructor to jump with! he made me laugh through out joking about the straps etc... LEGEND!!.. & Lee Rhodes also was my mums instructor for her first jump... He made her Christmas present 🎁 perfect she was absolutely terrified but talking throughout calmed her & she is ready to go again!! fantastic operation... & would highly recommend!! 🤙🤙💃

The most unreal experience, the staff where amazing and helped make me feel so comfortable
got it as a Christmas present, and I have to be honest ,I was absolutely terrified, I put it to the back of my head untill my daughter said we're going up on Sunday, I did try to put it off ,but as people said to me it's an experience of a life time, so on with it I went, my instructor lee Rhodes was absolutely incredible, calmed me down perfectly, I was on the verge of crying, highly recommend for sure, my instructor made it an even better experience, what a guy.... thanks

If you are thinking about doing a skydive then stop the thinking and get yourself booked in at Black Knights Parachute center.This is by far the best DZ in the country, the staff looked after us so much and kept us fully updated throughout the day, a special mention to Sharon although she was obviously mad busy with so many people to process, she still took the time out to explain all the video and photo packages available.She clearly explained their excellent Covid process to help keep us and the staff staff in these different times,Thank Sharon and the team you helped make our amazing experience even more memorable 👍👍

I never been treated so badly in my life. Also customer service is horrible and rude - absolutely not worth the money. Very disappointed
I would not even give 1 star but there is no option for ZERO STARS!
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!!!

Absolutely amazing day, I did a charity skydive raising money for the NWAA on the 18th April. I'm scared of heights and flying and the team was amazing! Very helpful and calming advice, they talk you through everything and are really awesome. I can't recommend them highly enough

I was bought a tandem skydive for my 40th birthday and completed the jump on the 18th October. From the minute you arrive, the ladies on reception make you feel right at home, they are lovely. The cafe is excellent and well stocked and the rest of the facilities are great. My instructor Chris was absolutely brilliant and made the whole experience one I will never forget. Jumping from 15,000 feet is something everyone should try at least once. With Chris as my instructor and Levi doing an incredible job with the camera, I really couldn't have enjoyed the jump any more. Again, thanks for making the day one I will always remember....until the next time.
I did my first ever skydive yesterday and it was the most amazing experience ever... it was a tandem dive with Instructor Unai and he was absolutely fantastic!! I am truly hooked now and will be calling this week to book my first course - cant wait!! 🤩

I had a good day, it was a good experience the only down fall is I used my card to pay for the video and pictures and after that I got transactions out my out from amazon France they had spent £283, not sure if it had anything to do with this but I’ve never had anything like this happen before
I loved the experience of skydiving. Lee Rhodes my instructor was amazing.
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.
Best experience ever...indescribable. all i can say is just do it!!!
26th September 2020
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
What an amazing experience!!!
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!
The staff really look after you, we jumped during the pandemic and felt safe. Had a wonderful experience and would recommend this centre
12:01 05 Oct 20
My wife was booked for her 40th, what a great experience and a nice friendly set up too. Could not fault it ... We will be back again soon
11:25 04 Oct 20
Completed my first tandem jump Yesterday from 15,000ft and it was the best experience of my life! The staff were brilliant from start to finish. Thank you to my fab instructor Unai for making me feel so at ease, and camera man Radu for the amazing photos and videos! To anyone thinking of doing a jump, I cannot recommend this place enough! Fabulous day and loved every minute of it, will definitely be returning to do another jump!
Best birthday ever, thank you so much to everyone at Black Knights! 😁

Lovely instructors and photographer. Very helpful reception staff. Such a good experience, professional and thorough. Expensive, but to be expected.
10:42 28 Sep 20
BK is an awesome DZ. The staff are great, plane is quick and the DZ has a great culture, the view is unreal too. 10/10 would manifest again
23:35 27 Sep 20
Amazing experience. I had Ralph and Elliot, so welcoming and friendly. Safe Covid rules. I would highly recommend 🙂
19:03 26 Sep 20
First there’s the location - if you’re going to jump out of a plane then ensure you’ve got something lovely to look at😀
Then the instructors who make you completely at ease and confident.
And then the adrenaline!!
10:35 26 Sep 20
It was an amazing experience for me and my best friends aka work colleagues Liza Kristiansen and Dan Nickson will definitely skydive again xxxx
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED my parachute jump. something everyone should do if they have the chance.
Thank you to Black Knights, who were really nice and informative.
I completed a skydive gifted to me last year for my 50th, because of current situations I dived the day before my 51st. Wow what an amazing experience Unai was the instructor I dived with, he made it a really special memory. I'd recommend this for everyone, really top notch and professional, I got the dvd and stills package, thanks to Elliot, they were A1. No doubt gonna book again, think i'm hooked! Thanks again guys......see you soon I hope.
What an amazing jump today! The team are very professional and make you feel very safe!
Thanks for an amazing experience guys & thanks Elliot for getting me down in one piece
Omg Thankyou Ralph and Elliot (camera guy) and the other instructor Elliott too. for a fantastic experience. will hopefully see you all again for a bigger jump 😉 absolutely amazing from start to finish. Thankyou so much.
Rochelle and Elizabeth ❤❤❤
what an amazing experience 15000 feet skydive fantastic.do it if you get the chance the instructors are really proffessional and calming thanks to you all
Would highly recommend this everybody involved was really nice and made you feel very welcome and relaxed. We to 15,000 feet and topped out at 170mph with lee Rhodes strapped to my back in full control ( I did offer to be the back guy but lee insisted ) all for a great cause #NWAA I will definitely return soon. Everyone at Black knights thank u it was a great day 5***** 👌🏻👍🪂
Absolutely Amazing day loved every minute ....
Enjoyable afternoon! One way system, only 3 spectators, masks, temp check on arrival, social distancing in force and hand sanitizer galore. I felt my children and I were kept COVID safe. Don't know how safe my hubby felt at 15,000 ft, but he's keen to book again! Well done Black Knight's 👍🪂🪂
We completed a skydive in aid of the air ambulance today & honestly it was the most incredible experience. I was so lucky to have such a lovely instructor (Aaron) who made me feel so at ease, kept me laughing and made sure that I had the most amazing experience possible and also my lovely little camera man Elliot for making me feel like an absolute celebrity and putting up with my constant chatting 🤣 thank you all so so much, I would absolutely recommend to anyone! 🪂✨
