Imagine experiencing the free-falling sensation of skydiving without ever leaping from an airplane.

Well, you’ve just imagined iFLY Chicago, an indoor skydiving experience with locations in both Rosemont and Naperville that recreates the weightless adrenaline rush of jumping outdoors without the plane ride. Using a state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel, guests can soar up to 25 feet high thanks to four powerful fans generating 1400 horsepower, while world-class instructors guide them through the ins and outs of the sport as they perfect their gravity-defying maneuvers.

Even better? Anyone can do it! Forget the dreaded “you must be this tall to ride this ride” signs that plague most amusement parks. At iFLY Chicago’s two locations, there are no height or age restrictions — kids as young as three and adults as old as 103 have taken flight — and even guests with physical disabilities can join in on the action.

All of which makes it an ideal outing for everyone, from families with kids to couples looking for an adventurous date to businesses looking to book a memorable corporate event. Classes range from beginner to expert, and each guarantees serious flying time and instruction to maximize fun and safety.

So this summer, save the beach towels and the lunch boxes and the sunscreen and all the other hassles of a day trip and head to one of iFLY Chicago’s two locations for a day your friends and family won’t forget. To book your lessons, click here.
