    The Experience

    The entire first time flight experiences take roughly 1-2 hours. After arriving and checking in, you take part in a personalized training session before gearing up to fly. During your flights your instructor teaches you to fly your body. You take turns flying one at a time with other first time flyers.


    First Time Flyers:
    2 Minutes: $64
    3 Minutes: $109
    10 Minutes: $247

    Group Rates:
    Buddy Plan - Two People, 3 Minutes Each: $178
    Family Plan - 2 to 5 People, 10 Minutes Total: $295

    For first time flights we recommend between 2 and 6 minutes of flight time per person. This gives you enough time to understand the basics of flying your body and is plenty of time for a great experience. For more pricing information, read our pricing article.

    I took my 19-year-old son to see what it would feel like flying indoors compared to skydiving from a plane, which I loved. I also wanted my son to be able to do this in a safe environment to make his nervous dad happy. It's been on our bucket lists for years.
    This place is the real deal. Teams of professionals were practicing formats in between first flyers (me being one of them). Our instructor (David) was professional, friendly, made us feel comfortable, made sure we were safe and that we had a great experience. The wind tunnel is wider than other places and is 50 ft high so you have more room to play and to settle into the feel of the wind. It was a 4-hour total drive, so I hoped it would be worth it. It was. I highly recommend choosing this location. It's not about the money for's about the passion of sharing an experience outside our daily so-called boxes with others in a safe and fun environment. Thanks everyone! I can finally cross this one off of my bucket list with a smile on my face!
    With Gratitude,
    Christine and son Evan.

    I flew several hours at XP and loved the tunnel! The staff was great, the tunnel is run very well and the building has lots of space to hang out and debreif. The only complaint was the wind got choppy at high wind speeds.
