What You'll Get
The need to "feel the wind in your hair" is best fulfilled by skydiving, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Get breezy with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get admission to indoor skydiving at Category 5 Productions in Rochelle (up to a $100 value).
Category 5 Productions’ vertical wind tunnel shoots thrill-seekers up in the air with a powerful gust that simulates the experience of skydiving. A Detroit V12 engine powers an inverted propeller, which produces a column of wind that blows at approximately120 miles per hour. Under the watchful eye of flight instructors and a wind-tunnel operator, gravity-defyers can twist, flip, and restyle their hairdos while suspended mid-air. The practice is known as body flight, as no tools or powered vehicles assist the high-flyer’s ascension. The vertical wind tunnel is an ideal training tool that enables first-time skydivers and experts alike to position their bodies and practice acrobatic tricks while close enough to the ground for their grandparents to take pictures.
