Win a Gyrocopter flight this Halloween at Skydive Dubai

Calling all ghosts, goblins, and superheroes to a spooky day of skydiving and Gyrocopter flights on Tuesday, October 31, at Skydive Dubai. And those who dare to wear a Halloween costume at our business locations on Halloween can enter to win one of three Gyrocopter flights!

For those who wish to skydive while in your costume on Halloween, you are welcome to do so as long as your costume doesn’t interfere with the harness that you wear during the skydive. Sorry, no capes or masks are allowed. You are welcome to come either location prior to October 31 for a quick safety check of your costume with the harness.

    • How to Win One of the Three Gyrocopter Flights

There are two easy ways to enter to win a gyrocopter flight on Halloween from Skydive Dubai.

The first way will be to enter your name physically at our either of our two DZ locations while wearing your Halloween costume. At the close of business on October 31, our store staff will draw one name at random from the prize bowl from each of our DZ locations. The lucky name that is drawn will win!

The second way to enter to win a gyrocopter flight will be to upload a photo of you in your Halloween costume on October 31 here. Voting will begin the morning of November 1 and will continue until 12 pm, November 1. The one person who receives the most public votes will win!
