Ever dream of flying?
Now you can!
iFLY Queenstown is NZ’s only indoor skydiving attraction based in central Queenstown. iFLY creates a smooth, wall-to-wall cushion of air on which anyone can safely float – no experience necessary. Simply lean into the airflow and that’s it – you’re flying!
You’ll have an instructor by your side through the whole experience – they will give you an orientation on the basics of flying so you can get the most out of your flights. Once you’ve been briefed you’ll receive your full flight gear which includes a helmet and flight-suit.
Once in the wind tunnel, your instructor will be right by your side providing personal instruction and will be able to demonstrate new skills as you improve.
You get 4 flights and each flight lasts 60 seconds – by the time you have had your 4 flights included in this package, that is the equivalent to the freefall of 6 skydives from 12,000 feet! You should allow 2 hours to complete you full experience and 4 flights.
Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
We think this is a really fun activity that is suitable to so many people. While it’s not the same as climbing in an aero plane and jumping out from 15,000 feet – not everyone wants to do that – so we think this is a perfect sweet spot. And who knows….maybe this will inspire you to take on a real skydive! Alex and Tayla from Chuffed visited iFLY in 2021 and had a ball! (photos of their good time are in the gallery)
