Have you ever dreamed of skydiving, but without the risk? To experience the thrill of flying weightless through the air, zooming around with the wind on your face and not a care in the world? If this thrill is for you, consider indoor skydiving at iFLY Seattle.
A unique design with its wall-to-wall air column, iFLY Seattle offers the fastest vertical wind tunnel in the world. It’s also the largest re-circulating version, west of the Mississippi. It’s designed with a second airlock chamber that offers easy entry and exit without having to shut down the tunnel.
Safe, even for kids, this body flight experience is challenging for adults, exciting for teens and realistic for skydivers of all levels. And there is no experience necessary….Sign up, attend the training session, change into your flight gear and then step into the all glass 14 foot in diameter vertical wind tunnel for the flight of your life.
Each flight within the wind tunnel lasts about 60 seconds, which is similar to the freefall portion of most skydives. There are also packages for longer flights, which last double the time at a reduced cost.
The enthusiastic staff and the expertise of the certified instructors, allows you to safely enjoy your flight session where you simply float on a column of air. The beauty about it is that there is no sensation of falling or anything that would make you feel motion sickness. Also, your flight instructor is with you through your entire experience regardless of your level of experience. Should you ever need spotting, they simply grasp the handles of your flight suit and set things right. iFly Seattle works hard to make each flyer’s experience memorable, fun and safe!
