Tandem jumps are not aloud (allowed) due to safety issues of inexperienced skydivers jumping into BRC. You MUST be an experienced skydiver with 100 jumps under your skirt and you will be allowed to jump.
There are observer seats on the planes (see links above) and you will get a great view of BRC from the sky. After the divers jump, the nose dive towards earth is pretty extreme. It's a good thing I wasn't wearing underwear!
