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 them...it'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!

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.
