Experience Indoor Skydiving at iFly

Just minutes from The Retreat at Park Meadows you’ll find an exciting form of in indoor entertainment.

If jumping from an airplane at 12,000 feet sounds exciting but a little scary, you can experience the indoor version at iFly. For nearly 20 years, iFly has been using wind tunnel technology to create heart-pounding yet safe experiences. They’re on a mission to bring the dream of flight to everyone!

What is Indoor Skydiving?

The indoor skydiving experience simulates a real free fall inside a vertical wind tunnel. These modern wind tunnels provide a place to practice skydiving techniques before jumping from a plane. Since they’ve become more widely available, a whole new sport called bodyflight has been created.

The Technology of Indoor Skydiving

iFly uses powerful fans at the top of the chamber to draw up air and then push it back down the sides. These are called Return Air Towers (RATs). The air is pushed from the RATs into the bottom of the tunnel and back into the flight chamber via an inlet contractor. This reduces the space the air can travel in which it compresses and speeds it up. What you then have is a smooth column of air to fly in.

The iFly Experience

There is no rush quite like free falling. Whether you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate your birthday or impress your date, iFly is here to accommodate. They provide space and catering if it’s a party you want. Birthdays, holidays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, you name it, they do it.

Suit up in the gear provided and get ready to take the leap. But first, there are lessons. You even get one-on-one flight instruction.
