About iFLY Minneapolis
iFLY Minneapolis (also known as iFLY Ridgedale) is a 5000 ft indoor skydiving facility and was the first 12-foot dual recirculating wind tunnel from iFLY, known as the Generation 8 model. The development of this model greatly reduced construction costs for franchisees, without compromising on quality. This combination turned out to be a massive success, and iFLY has since built many other Generation 8 wind tunnels all around the world in places such as Indonesia, Australia, and Canada.
The wide flight chamber provides the opportunity to really explore the space inside the tunnel, while the 360-degree glass wall is great for spectators to join along for the ride. There are four powerful fans above the tunnel which draw the air up through the flight chamber, producing air speeds of up to 163.5 mph (263.1 km/h).
You might imagine that four fans cutting through the air could produce quite a lot of heat. You'd be right! That's why the system includes state-of-the air conditioning to make sure for a smooth and unforgettable experience.
