    So here is the scoop. If you ever wanted to go sky diving here is your chance.
    first things first. You took a class that was about a half hour long. It was mostly a video followed by simple instructions.
    Next they suited you up. Lastly you jumped out of a plane!
    The jump was a tandem jump meaning you are hooked to the instructor so there are no accidents.

    On the way down i was able to see niagara falls. They also said that i might be able to see Toronto, but it's hard to look when your falling from 12,000 feet!

    PRICES
    Tandem Prices
    Group Size Price
    1 $220 each
    5-9 $210 each
    10-19 $200 each
    20-24 $190 each
    25+ $180 each
    10+ $220 each (and organizer jumps free!)

    Check out the website it will give you all the info you need. Good luck and have fun!

    IF YOU LIKE MY POST PLEASE GIVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK, THANKS.

    Watch out for that treeee!

    The atmosphere is American pub (with cafeteria decor). It is definitely casual dress.
    The restaurant has an attached bar and an outdoor patio (with umbrella tables) that overlooks the golf course.

    The staff is great, friendly, talkative and ready to serve. The food is cooked quickly and to your order. The meal was delicious. We tried the Black-n-Bleu hamburger (with bacon and bleu cheese) and a green salad and a cold beer. They have a great Friday night Fish Fry that is locally popular also.
    (see the website for the full menu).

    Most weekend nights there is a party of one kind or another going on at the bar half of the restaurant and everyone is welcome to join in.

Newfane Warnings and Dangers

    by davecallahan Updated Apr 26, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Newfane area and its local communities rate a "below average risk" for the crime statistics. There are no major crime threats to tourists. The population is mostly people in the agriculture or fishing businesses and they tend to be up early and to bed early which doesn't leave much time for criminal activities. There are no sex offenders registered in Newfane.

    You can feel safe when you visit here. Just use common sense in your activities and your stay will be a pleassant one.

Newfane Sports & Outdoors

    This is a challenging par-3 course. It is basically a farmer's field nicely landscaped with trees placed at inconvenient positions and five holes have water hazards. Duffer's like me must have at least 3 extra balls to finish the course (you can buy them at the pro-shop). The nine holes can be played in under an hour so you'll have plenty of time to go to the snack bar (or the pub) afterwards.

    Reservations are not required but you might want to call ahead (see the website) to be sure you can get the tee time you want. They have lighting on every hole so you can play until 11pm.
    Greens fees are $15.
