Got to figure out what to do for hubby for his birthday and although it is 3 months away i like to be prepared. I am thinking that this would be fun and i am able to do it as i fall within the weight guidelines and i am still losing so i think this is what i want to do :)
No Plane, No Parachute, No Problem! With Indoor Skydiving, you'll use a state of the art vertical wind tunnel to experience the freedom of flight - indoors!
Indoor skydiving is your chance to feel the amazing sensation of skydiving without jumping out of a plane! There is no falling sensation; you just float above the trampoline floor with ease.
You'll start out with a training class where you'll learn about flying in the wind tunnel and the use of your flight gear. Next, enjoy your flight rotations in the tunnel with one-on-one attention from your instructor and a flight certificate.
Indoor Skydiving is a safe and fun activity, and a great way for you to taste the thrill of skydiving without an airplane or parachute. No experience is necessary and just about anyone of any age can participate.
Earn Your Wings: 1 participant receives 2 one-minute flights in the vertical wind tunnel, the equivalent flight time of three tandem skydives. You also get your training session, use of all the flight gear, hands on personal assistance from an instructor and a personalized flight certificate.
Spread Your Wings: 1 participant receives 4 one-minute flights or 2 two-minute flights in the wind tunnel. An exciting experience for everyone! You also get your training session, use of all the flight gear, hands on personal assistance from an instructor, a DVD of your flight and a personalized flight certificate.
Spread Your Wings for Two: 2 participants share 4 one-minute flights (2 minutes per participant). You also get your training session, use of all the flight gear, hands on personal assistance from an instructor, a DVD of your flight and a personalized flight certificate.
Year Round: Sunday - Thursday 11:00am - 9:00pm
Friday and Saturday 11:00am - 11:00pm
(You'll need to arrive 45 minutes before your actual flight time)
For your safety, participants under 6'0" must weigh no more than 230 lbs, and participants over 6'0" must weigh no more than 250 lbs.
Participants must not have a medical history of heart, neck or back problems; no history of shoulder dislocations; and must not be pregnant.
Participants must be at least 3 years of age and those under 18 must have parent or guardian sign a consent waiver.
The entire flight experience lasts about an hour. Each flight is approximately 1 minute, which is equivalent to 1-2 real skydives. Many flyers find that each minute feels much longer, due to the adrenaline involved with flying in a 120 mph wind stream. Most people find two flight rotations to be an ideal amount for beginners.
One person flies at a time. 12 - 15 participants per class.
If your guest chooses to watch, they are welcome to accompany you through your experience and can watch from the complimentary observation area.
This experience is not weather dependent.
