Perris Indoor Skydiving
Perris Indoor Skydiving Overview
Perris Indoor Skydiving (also known as Indoor Skydiving Perris) is a 12-foot (3.7 m) eight-sided wall-to-wall wind tunnel located in Perris, California, just south of Riverside. Open since 2003, Perris Indoor Skydiving is the oldest wind tunnel in California (which is now home to seven tunnels!) and one of the oldest tunnels in the United States. It is also the only non-iFLY tunnel currently operating in California.
Similar to SkyVenture Arizona, this tunnel is located on a popular skydiving dropzone, Skydive Perris, and is the only wind tunnel located at a dropzone in California. As a result, it attracts a high level of skydiver traffic and is perhaps the best indoor skydiving California location for flyers who wish to train for outdoor flight, but it remains a suitable tunnel for all ages and skill levels.
The facilities also house a restaurant and bar, The Bombshelter, an in-ground swimming pool, bunkhouse, RV hookups, and camping sites. There is also a pro-shop, Gold State Gear, and an on-site house (with 24 beds) that large groups can rent out, dubbed the “International House Of Parachutists.”
Due to its proximity to Los Angeles, many Hollywood celebrities, including Tom Hanks, Miley Cyrus, Kendall Jenner, Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, James Corden, and Cameron Diaz have used the Skydive Perris / Perris Indoor Skydiving facility at one time or another. Scenes from films including Transformers, Godzilla, Shoot ‘Em Up, Iron Man, and Charlie’s Angels have also been shot at this facility.
Experience at Perris Indoor Skydiving
The wind tunnel at Perris Indoor Skydiving simulates the experience of outdoor skydiving in a controlled environment. Before the session begins, visitors go through a safety briefing and are fitted with a flight suit, helmet, and goggles. The tunnel's 12-foot diameter creates winds of up to 160 miles per hour, allowing you to float mid-air and experience the sensation of skydiving.
Indoor skydiving is an excellent way to practice skydiving skills or try it out for the first time. The controlled environment allows beginners to learn the basics of flying without worrying about complications such as wind, weather, or altitude. For experienced skydivers, indoor skydiving provides a unique opportunity to hone their skills and try complex aerial maneuvers.
Who Can Fly?
Indoor Skydiving Perris is so safe and easy that almost anyone can try! Indoor skydiving can even be a great activity for people with disabilities, so just reach out to the team to explain your situation and they'll look to find the best way to accommodate your needs.
As long as you're in general good shape, you should be good to fly but there are some general rules to bear in mind before booking:
- Minimum age is 3 years old or 36" tall
- Maximum weight is 250 lbs for people under 6 ft and 260 lbs for people over 6 ft
- Indoor skydiving is not recommended if you have had any previous back, neck, or shoulder problems
- If you have a heart condition you should consult with a doctor before booking
Perris Indoor Skydiving is one of the only wind tunnels located at a dropzone, providing a unique opportunity to experience both activities. If you're up to the challenge, you should definitely check out the Adrenal-IN experience, here you'll get comfortable flying inside the wind tunnel before heading outside to do a tandem jump from 14,000 ft.
This is probably the best deal available at Skydive Perris with prices starting at just $314!
Military Training at Perris Indoor Skydive
The vertical wind tunnel at Skydive Perris (VWT) provides military personnel with the ability to conduct freefall training in a safe and controlled environment. Freefall programs are designed to train military personnel in various types of freefall techniques that may occur during high-altitude jumps. The VWT offers the ability to train without the need for dual jumpmaster-assisted freefall (AFF) instruction, reducing the cost and overall risk associated with traditional methods.
The VWT enables military personnel to be trained to a high level of proficiency before they ever jump out of an airplane for training.
