Slidell is a city in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, USA. It is at 3mi/5km in the north of Lake Pontchartrain and 30 min away from the city of New Orleans.
When in Slidell, don’t miss visiting Old Town, the historic downtown district to enjoy great architecture, art galleries and museums and also flea market type shops, good food and nightlife. If you are looking for adventure, don’t hesitate to try skydiving even if you have no prior experience.
Tandem skydiving requires minimum amount of training, as you are safely strapped to the instructor. There are also courses to attend, if you are more experienced and you want to try a solo jump.
Either way, when diving, you find yourself racing through the sky at speeds of approximately 120 mph/193 kph for about 60 sec free fall and a 5 to 7 parachute ride, with a breathtaking view of Lake Pontchartrain and New Orleans. All you have to do is dare it and give it a shot.
