Owner description: iFLY Orlando is the best way to experience indoor skydiving.Experience true free-fall conditions, just like skydiving, without having to jump out of an airplane. iFLY's vertical wind tunnel creates a wall-to-wall cushion of air on which you can safely float. There's no parachute, no jumping & nothing attaching you to planet Earth. It's just you & the air, and it's the most incredible adrenaline rush.No Experience Necessary.Recommended for ages 3 to 103! Fun entertainment for the whole family and great for kids.

“I am a bird!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

This was soooo much fun. I found this idea on the web and thought, "I want to fly and Not Jump out of a plane... I can't recommend it enough. Ever dream your flying and then wake up. Well, be awake and experience it. Safe and exciting. Striker, my instructor was the best. You do this, it is not a ride, you need to feel it and participate in it. So rewarding when you get it right and actually float upward. I can't wait to do this again... Bucket list stuff.

“Great Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

Having never done anything like this before my wife and I thought we would try this for a laugh. The staff were friendly and our group of five were allocated a trainer and had a brief instructions session and watched a safety. We were then suited up and went into the wind tunnel - we has two one minute sessions and although it doesnt sound long it feels a lot longer than that when you are in there - overall good value for money and a great laugh

“book carefully!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

I have an odd story about our experience at IFly. We booked and paid in advance online. Our flight time was 4:00. We arrived at 3:20 for 'check in' and while checking in (going to a computer to type in your name, etc), we were told that we were late and if we were interested in flying, we would have to return when they had space available...3 days from our scheduled time.

We weren't happy, to say the least. We booked this adventure near the tail end of our trip, thus waiting three days wasn't feasible. We explained that we were 40 minutes early from our 'time'; the obnoxious staff member printed out our receipt, highlighted the portion that says "check in 60 minutes prior to flight time" and tried to send us on our merry way. Without a refund.

We asked to take a later flight that day and the staff member happily refused. We asked for a refund, and the staff member happily refused. We felt a little scammed, especially since the place was dead empty--if they were overbooked, then where were all the people? Eventually, the manager gave us a refund reluctantly ("this isn't our policy").

Our friends happen to book the same day, just a bit later, and were called prior to their flight to say that their were mechanical issues and IFly was closed. They, too, were offered a flight three days later, but were leaving. They were not offered, nor issued a refund. Our friends are fighting with them still to receive a refund.

So, I have to think that the day we arrived, their was some mechanical problem, and yet they were trying to send us out the door without a refund. Seems like a scam. If the machine is broken, hand out refunds! Why create all this bad press?

“exciting experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

I always wondered what skydiving would be like, but never had the opportunity (or guts) to actually do it. This indoor skydiving experience gave me a glimpse of what's like to fly! It doesn't come cheap but it was well worth it. 2 sessions of flying with approximately 1 minute each session.
