Open Monday to Friday 8.30 AM to 5:20 PM
Indoor Skydiving is THE adrenaline sport of the moment - and it all takes place inside! Imagine throwing yourself into the gush of air from a vertical wind tunnel to experience all the sensation of freefall, but without the need to train or even get in a plane.
These indoor skydiving experiences at various locations around the UK are suitable for all ages, including children as young as four. As long as you're fairly fit and able-bodied you'll be able to skydive in front of your friends and family. They will all be watching on the other side of the perspex, ideally placed to take photos as you bob up and down in the wind tunnel! Read more...

iFLY vouchers for a superb family skydiving day out. You...
Originally developed to help sky divers practice their freefall technique, indoor sky diving is so popular that everyone wants to try it. Rather than spending loads of money on a parachute and plane, this gives you all the exhilliration for less money.
Who'd have thought that you could have so much fun jumping into a vertical windtunnel? These iFLY activities will see you donning a proper professional wing suit, helmet and transparent goggles before taking the intrepid leap into the forced air…and the sensations are truly amazing.
In fact, its quite difficult to try and explain just what it feels like. The first thing you'll notice is that it’s pretty noisy. There's a massive whirring noise as the fan start up which might take you by surprise. And just in case you were wondering how it works, there's a technician who controls the airflow and therefore how much force you'll be faced with. Of course, different people need different force levels because of height, weight and size.
Then you'll soon realise you need to be fully kitted up for your foray into indoor freefalling. The special suits are nice and baggy, which all helps when heading skywards. Then there's the helmet and last but not least, the funny goggles. You'll need these as the wind is so strong it can really dry your eyes out. And be prepared for those jowls to wobble!
The tunnel itself is actually quite small in diameter, but very high. Consequently, you can ride the wind and rise up. There’s a transparent surround so spectators can check out all the action (and believe us, it's all very entertaining as you can't help pulling funny grimaces!). As you look down into it from the 'doorway' you'll see what appears to be netting across the base. Often beginners to this sport will start the session by lying down on the net and as the fans start up, you will be lifted into the air.
Due to its huge popularity right now, you probably know someone who would love this. As a result, we've teamed up with iFly to offer gift vouchers. You can book in groups of up to five people, so why not take the family?
If, when you're at the venue, you're lucky enough to see some of the seasoned regulars (each centre has clubs and even freestyle teams) you'll be amazed as they simply run and jump straight into the airstream. It seems impossible but your eyes will see them fly, and the synchronised tricks they pull are incredible. It's quite literally hair-raising stuff, as you can see here in this video of an iFLY instructor in Manchester showing off his skills.
Those in the UK who have never tried the madcap activity of indoor skydiving before will love the feeling of near weightlessness as that gust almost literally blows you away. Don't worry, you won't be going anywhere too far, as the instructors are always on hand to re-position you if necessary! Finally, you can enjoy the photographs you all took of each other as you sit with friends.
