Those of us who live in Frisco, Texas often say we have it all, and we clearly do. Frisco has an outstanding reputation for attracting intriguing retail service providers who can offer memorable experiences, fun and excitement for individuals and group of all ages.
For example, have you ever thought about skydiving……without leaving the ground? I’m referring to the sensation of soaring like an eagle through the wild blue yonder without a worry in the world! Without taking flight!
The iFLY Dallas Indoor Skydiving facility at 8380 State Highway 121 (on the north side between Preston Road and Parkwood Blvd.) offers this opportunity as a safe and invigorating experience for “kids” of all ages — from three to 103 — by providing the thrill and sensation of skydiving without having to leap from an aircraft.
Best of all, no experience is required to participate at one of the most advanced wind tunnels in the world. The iFLY Dallas wind tunnel is safe for young children, offers excitement for teenagers, a challenge for adults, and more than enough realism for those who have actually jumped from a plane at 1,000 feet with a parachute.
This indoor skydiving experience is a simulation of true free-fall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel, enabling the dream of flight to become your reality.
The iFLY Dallas vertical wind tunnel’s fans atop the facility draw air through the flight chamber, then push it back down the sids through Return Air Towers (RATs). The RATs turn the air into the bottom of the tunnel and back up toward the flight chamber through an inlet contractor.
The inlet contractor then reduces the space in which the air can travel, compressing and speeding up the air before it reenters the flight chamber. The result is a smooth, safe column of air that enables you to fly.
The total experience will last at least 90 minutes. Each wind tunnel flight lasts 60 seconds, but total length depends on the package that is selected. For example, the free fall when jumping from an airplane lasts about 45 seconds. Some packages feature double-length flights.
In addition, breathing is relatively easy – the same as if you stick your head out of a car window while the vehicle is in motion. Just breathe normally through your mouth and/or nose and you’ll feel the wind in your face.
You can obtain more information, including answers to frequently asked questions, as well as book a flight at the iFLY Dallas website at https://www.iflyworld.com/dallas/.
Virtually everyone who is in reasonable health and fitness can fly, but you should check the criteria at the iFLY Dallas website, or call them at (214) 618-4359.
Flight packages for individuals, groups and corporate outings are available. All participants will receive pre-flight training, all required flight gear such as a flight suit, helmet and goggles, instruction from a certified flight guide, and personalized post-flight certificate.
The unique iFLY vertical wind tunnel facility also provides an education program for teachers who want to schedule a field trip. Curriculum has been designed by STEM educators and scientists to support learning in the classroom.
The iFLY Dallas location is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
