Visitors ages 3 and older can turn the dream of flying into reality at iFLY, where they can take flight in a vertical wind tunnel. While it may sound difficult, it’s actually quite easy. The facility provides all the equipment you need, and an instructor walks you through the process before you go into the wind tunnel. If you follow the instructor’s directions, you’ll have a great time.
The wind tunnel is clear so parents can snap photos and videos of their kids inside the tunnel. Essentially, there is a big fan that blows from the ground up, pushing you into the air. As first-time “flyers,” you will not “fly” or “freefall” like with skydiving. In fact, as a family with actual skydiving experience, it’s not really the same at all, so don’t let any skydiving-related fears hold you back.
Sunday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Packages start at $69.95.
