Vegas Indoor Skydiving is a 12-foot (3.7 m) privately-owned wind tunnel located in Sin City, and the only indoor skydiving Las Vegas offers (that’s right, there’s no iFLY Vegas!). Powered by a 1,000-hp electric motor attached to the propeller of a DC-3 aircraft, this wild wind tunnel is the oldest commercial tunnel in the United States. It’s been open for 40 years, since 1982!
Built on the site of a bank (the tunnel is inside the bank vault), Vegas Indoor Skydiving is also the only wind tunnel in the state of Nevada, and the oldest “attraction” in all of Las Vegas, according to a certificate from the city council. It was the second wind tunnel in history designed for human flight, after Jean St-Germain’s AERODIUM tunnel near Montreal, Canada. While this tunnel can only reach about 120 mph (193 kph), it’s an excellent location for beginner flyers. Unlike most modern wind tunnels, which feature “wall-to-wall” columns of air, there is a small padded ring around the edge of the tunnel (outside the column of air), where participants and instructors can stand while not flying, but still be right next to the action!
The facility offers a wide range of flying experiences to suit every skill level, so whether you're just starting out or you're already an experienced skydiver, there's something for everyone. With competitive rates and passionate staff, Vegas Indoor Skydiving is perfect for thrill seekers and families alike, offering an unforgettable take on Vegas entertainment that can't be missed. So what are you waiting for?
