“SKYDIVE” IN INCREDIBLE OVERSEAS DESTINATIONS, ALL WITHOUT LEAVING THE STATE OF FLORIDA!
iFLY, the world’s largest indoor skydiving operator, has announced the introduction of a first-of-its-kind virtual reality experience to complement current flight offerings. Participants will gear up and jump at the chance to take indoor skydiving to new exhilarating heights, experiencing near real-life skydiving sights in some of the nation’s most beautiful destinations like Southern California, Switzerland, Hawaii, and Dubai — without setting foot in, or out of, an airplane!
Fliers will feel the burst of adrenaline and see themselves seamlessly jumping from a plane through a hyperrealistic free-falling experience, with complete immersion via iFLY’s state-of-the-art VR helmet and headset. The experience combines first-of-its- kind virtual reality technology application, powered by Samsung Gear VR headsets, and iFLY’s wind tunnel technology, allowing guests to feel the thrill of skydiving from the perspective of a professional skydiver all in a safe and controlled environment. All flyers must first complete iFLY’s pre-flight training course and participate in several training flights before jumping into VR. The iFLY Virtual Reality Flight Experience is available to individuals ages eight and up. They also offer events for birthday parties, holiday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and corporate events!
