Bachelor Party Ideas: Indoor Skydiving
Experience high adventure skydiving, without ever having to pack a parachute, pull a ripcord, or jump out of an airplane.
Here’s your chance to fulfill your innate desire to fly – and you never have to leave the ground. At Niagara Freefall in Niagara, Ont., you and your buddies can defy gravity in the airflow skydiving simulator.
“It’s the first and only indoor state-of-the-art skydiving wind tunnel of its kind in Canada,” says Andrew Cserpes, President of Niagara Freefall.
Wind and body positions are similar in nature to real skydiving, Cserpes says. “Some obvious differences are the altitude, a plane, parachutes and a nice view.”
While skydiving has three-to-five hours of training before flying, indoor skydiving only has a 20 minute training class, which teaches stable body position, tunnel safety and hand signals. So if you and your thrill-seeking friends are looking for some excitement, this will surely satisfy your needs.
Almost anyone can freefall in the wind tunnel; in fact, women tend to fly better than guys. “They are more relaxed in the air and have a better centre of gravity.”
The indoor flight chamber is 20 ft. high and can hold up to four experienced people flying together in air speeds of up to 140mph.
The facility also has an interactive centre with lazerball, bull riding, rock climbing, games, and accommodations nearby; perfect for bachelor/bachelorette parties.
