Details

If you love the extreme sport of indoor skydiving, crave adrenaline-inducing activities, or simply want to try something epic, come for an experience of the thrilling sensation of indoor skydiving.  Without a parachute or airplane, a vertical tunnel with high speed wind keeps you floating and soaring through the air, it is one of the most exciting and fastest growing sports in the world.

NOTE:
  • Minimum 6 scouts required to keep the reservation
  • Participants must weigh less than 260lbs.  If you have recent back, neck and heart problems should check with a doctor before flying.  Prior shoulder dislocations DO NOT FLY!  You won’t get any feeling of motion sickness, nausea, or dropping feeling in your stomach.
  • Individuals with heart conditions cannot fly Virtual Reality.  Parents, please check out recommendations for use of VR here: https://www.iflyworld.com/discover/virtual-reality/

  1. TRAINING: Your flight instructor is trained and certified by the IBA (International Bodyflight Association) – he or she is happy to address any questions or concerns about flying or the sport of body flight!  You will learn proper body positioning and hand signals used by our instructors to guide your flight. Remember: Relax and have fun!
  2. GEAR UP - Includes flight suit, helmet, goggles, ear plugs and helmet
  3. FLYING: Your instructor will lead you into the Flight Chamber and assist you while entering, flying, and exiting. Remember what you learned during training to help achieve proper technique. Once you nail the basics, the wind tunnel can become your playground.
