iFly Indoor Skydiving…doesn’t get much better than this. Well I’m sure the real thing may be but I’m not ready for that yet…or am I?
Unfortunately that’s not me or any of the people in my group in the above picture lol. These are experienced jumpers. There is a wall that tells you the levels needed to move up in the ranks. Just so you know, the jumpsuits are color coded and as beginners you get the blue suit. So the first thing before getting suited up is safety training. Of course I wanted to do flips but not yet. The picture below is the hand signals you must know while flying. It seems simple but for some reason when you get in the wind tunnel you forget everything lol.
In the true spirit of bloggers, we had to get a photo beforehand. I don’t know why I have a red stripe but if you are wondering it’s the same as beginner. When inside the wind tunnel there were about 10 of us in a group. We each did 2 1 minute flights. It feels so much longer while you are doing it. It also feels like you are going way higher than the pictures show. On our second flight, the instructor asks if you would like to go high. Umm duh…that’s what I came for haha. He grabs your hand and takes you up and down 3 times. Sooooooooooooooo fun!
At the end of the jumps, we turn in our jumpsuits, helmets and goggles and get a certificate. It has boxes checked off on what you did and tells you what else you need to do. Since Sheldon (my fiance) has done the real thing, he thinks I’m ready too. I don’t know about that haha…maybe.
If you want to go indoor skydiving I highly recommend it. We are planning to go with a group of friends next time. The best part, I think the youngest age to fly is 3!
Thanks for reading!
