If the idea of skydiving captivates—but completely terrifies—you, Outdoor Indoor Skydiving has you covered. Without the airplane or the parachutes, they literally blow folks away in a massive outdoor wind tunnel, which re-creates the adrenaline-pumping experience of free falling. The winds inside the tunnel reach more than 100 mph, launching thrill-seekers into the air to simulate human flight. And while an actual skydiving experience lasts about 45 seconds, visitors can safely play in the tunnel for longer stretches of time, and really give smug bald eagles something to think about. Once the sun goes down, the experience becomes even more exhilarating, as the tunnel glows with neon lights running up and down its sides.
Before taking flight, the enthusiastic instructors demonstrate their high-flying skills, which often include flips, nose dives, and breakdancing mid-air. They also run newbies through a quick lesson on the proper body form for a successful trip.
