I feel like I owe it to ifly to write a review..I had a great time and doubt I will ever forget it. I stumbled upon it after receiving a gift card for my birthday. Upon reading, "indoor skydiving" on the card, I imagined it to be an activity involving ropes and harnesses, something similar to bungee jumping. It is actually way more interesting than that. You fly in a fancy looking wind tunnel, on a column of air, sped up to the same 100+ mph speeds a person reaches at terminal velocity. I was amazed at the technology as did almost everyone else seeing it for the first time. The staff was friendly and our instructor was a great host--he was funny and seemed to really take pleasure in teaching us newbies. I was nervous at first as I did not know what to expect, but once I was in the wind, I was able to let go of my nerves and live in the moment. The instructions are simple and as long as you follow them, you will have fun. I recommend this place to anyone with a sense of adventure. At the very least, go there and watch other people fly. Your jaw will drop once you see an instructor fly and do a demonstration of their skills.
The scheduling process was a nightmare. I literally spent an hour and talked to maybe 10 people to schedule one visit for 3 people. We also lost one of the vouchers we purchased and they told us they had no way of looking it up by name which seems stupid at best and suspicious at worst. I asked if they could look it up by credit card and they finally found out vouchers. The actual experience is super fun and the whole staff is awesome. The flight instructors both times we went were friendly and enthusiastic and just seemed to love their job so Id give that piece 5 stars!
I bought a iFly package for my boyfriend and his brother as a birthday present. Despite the fact that they both did real skydiving, they still enjoyed the event. As an observer, I also enjoyed watching the program (seating areas around the flying area) and especially trainers doing their special (spider-man inspired) bit. iFly is kid and adults friendly. Not advised for people with back issues. Featured videos are staff (pro level), not what youll do as part of the package.
Great staff, everyone is so friendly, helpful and courteous. The experience was awesome and weve purchased a handful of return flyer packages (at a very generous discount) because we plan to return with more friends! Simply cannot wait to return! P.S. It is not scary!! It simply feels like sticking your head out the window of a car (except you arent looking into the wind), or falling onto a pillow of air.
We had a big group that attended the I -Fly experience. So with a big group you should be a bit more organized and be able to communicate effectively and that did not happen. In the end it all got worked out. The instructors were very nice and helpful! Made the experience lots of fun...would go back because its alot of fun!
My kids went and had a GREAT time.....the down side, we checked our bank and our credit card was charged double. Turns out, everyone that went to ifly that Saturday was charged double...according to the manager. 11 days later...STILL have not been reimbursed. This also happened to my Daughters account! Very frustrating
Amazing place, I wasnt imho it but my wife really wanted to give it a try... O boy Im happy I listened this time! Amazing staff, there was a little girl on our season and the instructor couldnt be any more amazing and accommodating to her and us. We will definitely be coming back... Soon!
Long wait for no reason. Web site says come an hour early. We sat in a lobby for 40 minutes before anyone came to get us!!! My 6 year old daughter loved it and once we began it was an exciting experience. Nothing like jumping out of a plane so just relax and have fun!!!!
Disclaimer: Ive never actually flown inside of here. HOWEVER, I have stopped here late at night for the entertainment of watching people fly in here. When youve had a few rounds at an establishment nearby and need something interesting to watch, stop in here.
To put it simply, this place is super fun. Its pretty expensive, but you get to basically fly in a giant glass tube. I highly recommend it for people seeking just a little bit of thrill or those who are looking to get more into this sort of thing.
Absolute blast! I decided to take my 6 year old daughter for her birthday and she loved it! Our instructor, Garet, was great about getting her in the correct body position and making the experience very smooth. We are definitely coming back!
Garet Bloodworth is amazing! My husband is a skydiver and I am a wanna be skydiver. Garet worked with my husband on some of his movements and he was amazing with me. He taught me so much in a short period of time. We will be back!
Lot of fun and worth the cost for flying. Recommend the high fly and 2 minutes. Dont worry it feels longer than that while you are in the tunnel. Really fun time, just remember to relax and there is a weight limit of 300lbs.
I did this experience and have to say Matt (the instructor) was AWESOME!! He took great care of each flyer, respectful and fun! I want to do this again or maybe the real thing! Thanks Matt for a great experience.
Very fun place to take the family. Rides might seem short when signing up, but are plenty when you take the plunge. Staff is great , but place can get very busy/crowded. Watch for specials or get tickets at costco!
Staff was great, what an experience wow. I had so much fun even though I was a little nervous. Great for adults and young teens. I am definitely coming back seeing as its safer than jumping out of an air plane !
Staff was extremely rude!!! No emergency plan. My granddaughter panicked after the first flight and they stood around with dumb looks on their faces and moved like snails to let her out. ###holes!!!
Its a great deal of fun and the staff make the experience both memorable and enjoyable. Its a little steep, cost wise, for what the amount of time you get, but Id still recommend going.
A super fun experience for the whole family. Girls with long hair: wear your hair in braids or a bun instead of wearing ponytails while flying to avoid really tangled hair.
Had a blast over the weekend. Patient trainer with great experience. My 5 year old, who was reluctant to do fly, had great time. We ended buying Return 4 package for her.
Even if you arent trying to learn how to skydive this is fun all by itself. A nice way to experience bodyflight for those who dont want to jump out of an airplane.
We had a group of 2 adults and 3 teens. Everyone had a great time. Worth the money spent. Ryan was our teacher. He was awesome. Bought another package to go back.
very cool and worth trying but its an expensive hobby. My nieces had a great time and now want to actually fly in a plane and do the real thing!
