Ever wanted to experience skydiving but not particularly keen at the thought of hurtling towards the ground at 250km per hour? Luckily for us sensible adrenaline chasers, Essendon Fields just scored a state-of-the-art indoor skydiving centre.
iFLY, the American extreme sports company, has opened its slick-looking indoor skydiving centres across the world and just brought their revolutionary concept to Melbourne.
The facility comprises of a centralised 14ft (3.65m) diameter-wide vertical glass wind tunnel that creates a freefall sensation very similar to jumping out of a plane (without the risk of actually jumping out of a plane). There will be plenty of highly trained instructors to keep all your anxiety attacks at bay; however, if soaring in a vertical wind tunnel isn't your cup of tea, the centre also provides a swish viewing platform for you to watch friends and family take to the skies.
iFLY welcomes flyers of all abilities, from ages 3 to 103. And don't worry: you’ll get to learn all about the basics of indoor skydiving before you actually hop into the wind tunnel and say bye-bye to gravity. iFLY will provide you with all the gear you need, so all you have to do is just bring your responsible adrenaline-craving self.
