Indoor Skydiving Lands in Seattle
Last month, my grandson celebrated his 13th birthday with four of his friends, by skydiving indoors at the new I Fly facility located near Southcenter.
This experience rated better than any of those video games he usually asks for and gets tired of within a few weeks. Elias and his friends still talk about the I Fly experience and what a great time they had. And when they will return and get more skills checked off on their certificates.
I Fly uses a vertical wind tunnel that moves air up, creating an actual flying experience, not a simulation. Multiple fans located at the top of a large plastic tube produce and air flow that makes flying smooth and fun.
Professional instructors help you get your bearings because once you enter the tube you’re flying and to many that’s quite a surprise. What’s really fun for spectators is that after an instructor finishes helping his assigned group of “flyers” he or she then does tricks that only a skilled flyer is capable of.
For birthday parties, all the guests get a certificate of accomplishments and the guest of honor receives a video of their experience flying.
Children as young as 3 years of age may participate and there’s no upper age limit. Everyone looks like they are having the time of their life.
I would love to try this. The fun seemed contagious.
Reservations are recommended.
