Indoor Skydiving for Kids!
You can take your children on an adventure with wind tunnel skydiving! It’s important to remember that you don’t need any experience with flying or jumping out of planes before you try it out yourself, so don’t worry if they aren’t quite ready yet either!
Indoor Skydivers Get All the Thrills Without the Risk
While you can experience freefall speeds of up to 120 miles per hour, indoor skydivers reach speeds that are often faster than outdoor skydivers. In fact, the indoor world record for skydiving speed is a whopping 193 miles per hour! The competition was held at the Indoor Skydiving center in Chicago, Illinois by professional skydiver Lucas Coffey and his partner Chris DeAira. They were able to achieve this feat thanks to their customized individual flight suits—each suit was designed as an exact replica of their bodies so that they could maximize drag during flight.
No Fear of Falling
One of the biggest differences between indoor wind tunnel skydiving and outdoor skydiving is that you won’t feel like you’re falling, since there’s no wind resistance. You’ll actually feel as though you’re floating!
Indoor skydiving is also a safe and controlled environment. In a vertical wind tunnel, which uses fans to create lift and allow participants to slide down the walls of the tunnel on their backs, your instructor will guide your parachute so that it remains in front of your body at all times. This prevents any collisions with objects or people inside the chamber—and makes for an even more relaxing experience than normal freefalling would be.
Flight instructors are trained professionals who will ensure that you are comfortable and safe at all times while in the tunnel.
Flight instructors are trained professionals who will ensure that you are comfortable and safe at all times while in the tunnel. The instructors are there to assist you with your equipment, help you practice your body position, and give advice on how to remain calm during your flight. They will also make sure that everyone is aware of their role in ensuring that their guests have a successful experience by following all safety measures in place, which can include wearing helmets or harnesses.
Safety is taken very seriously at indoor skydiving facilities because it’s essential for ensuring a positive experience for everyone involved (including staff). Instructors understand the risks involved with indoor skydiving and have been trained to address any situation safely if necessary.
Indoor skydiving offers the same thrills as outdoor skydiving without the risk or fear of heights.
Indoor skydiving offers the same thrills as outdoor skydiving without the risk or fear of heights. You will be fitted for a harness, and then you’ll jump from a vertical wind tunnel that resembles an airplane hangar. As you fall, air will rush around you to simulate flight and make it feel like you are actually flying.
The experience is so realistic that some people report feeling weightless, just like astronauts on a mission in outer space!
