You Can Now Go Fake Skydiving in Frisco
First off, let's make one thing clear. Contrary to what the company claims on its website, or what the above headline might suggest, iFly does not offer "indoor skydiving." There's no sky. No diving. Just a vertical wind tunnel and baggy jumpsuits.
That said, iFly Dallas, the company's brand-new facility at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco, does offer some pretty intense hovering. Observe:
The setup is pretty straightforward. iFlyers go through a brief instructional seminar, suit up, then hop into the wind tunnel, which produces a column of air moving at somewhere between 130 and 175 miles per hour. Then, they do some fake skydiving.
iFly is open to pretty much anyone who's not an infant, pregnant, or morbidly obese so long as they pay up and sign a waiver.
