Have you ever dreamt of flying without wings? If so, then indoor skydiving at iFLY Orlando is the ultimate experience for you! As Florida's only indoor skydiving location in Orlando, iFLY Orlando offers the thrill of skydiving without the fear of jumping out of a plane. Florida has several other wind tunnels, including a new tunnel in Miami, but iFLY Orlando stands out for its state-of-the-art facilities and exceptional service.
iFLY Orlando Location and Facilities
iFLY Orlando opened in May 2017 to replace its older brother, SkyVenture Orlando– the first ever iFLY Tunnel Systems (formerly, SkyVenture) tunnel to be built all the way back in 1999! Since those early days, wind tunnel technology has come a long way and with high demand for indoor skydiving in Orlando, iFLY decided it was time to open the new iFLY Orlando on International Drive, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Orlando.
Most modern tunnels feature 14-foot dual recirculating tunnels, but due to the high demand in the area, iFLY opted for installing two 12-foot (3.7 m) tunnels in the same facility. Due to the compact design, the tunnels at iFLY Orlando are slightly shorter than most tunnels, but still powerful enough to generate wind speeds of up to 163.5 mph (253 km/h).
Thanks to the 360-degree glass flight chamber, iFLY Orlando offers great viewing for family and friends to watch flyers in action from one of many comfortable sofas and stools in the viewing area.
The larger facility at the new iFLY Orlando also means that there's enough space for private-party and corporate rooms.
The Indoor Skydiving Experience
Indoor skydiving at iFLY Orland is an exhilarating experience that is hard to put into words. Before you even step into the wind tunnel, the qualified instructors give a thorough briefing, explaining important safety tips and correct body posture to maneuver your body through the column of air.
The flyers are then provided with all the necessary equipment, including a jumpsuit, helmet, and goggles. Once you are suited up in your special iFLY gear, it's time to step into the tunnel and experience the rush of wind hitting your entire body. Your instructor will be with you inside the tunnel throughout the whole experience.
Each standard session consists of two one-minute flights, which is the equivalent of two regular skydives!
