Point of Interest
“ iFLY Indoor Skydiving This has to be one of the most awesome family attractions ever. From 3 years and up, enjoy this amazing indoor skydiving experience which is the simulation of real freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. The tunnel has fans at the top that draws air through the flight chamber which then push it back down the sides through Return Air Towers, turning the air into the bottom of the tunnel and back up toward the flight chamber through an inlet contractor which then lowers the space that the air can travel in. This speeds up and compresses the air before it reenters the flight chamber giving you a smooth column of air, allowing you to fly. The venue provides all the gear & instruction required, and if you would rather watch than participate, there are plenty of seats for everyone. ”
