America has always been the most extreme country—from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one flight session at Flyaway Indoor Skydiving (a $31.95 value), located in Pigeon Forge. This deal also includes a training session, equipment preparation, suit, helmet, and other safety equipment. Depending on height, men and women must not exceed certain weight restrictions.
Flyaway Indoor Skydiving offers thrill-detectives three minutes of exhilarating free-fall within the comforts of its safe indoor simulator. With this deal, you'll start with 20 minutes of training and 15 minutes of equipment preparation, during which extreme-seekers will be taught the fundamentals of soaring and getting fitted with the proper safety garb. Following preparation, participants will descend into the vertical wind-tunnel, which allows sky-surfing simulators to serenely float above the ground for three full minutes, more than enough time to reenact their favorite play from the zero-gravity World Series. Wind riders must be in top physical form and be devoid of shoulder or back pain. Classes are held every half an hour but visitors should plan to spend about 75 minutes at the facility.
Flyaway Indoor Skydiving
By engineering an indoor, upwards-facing wind tunnel, the brilliant minds behind Flyaway Indoor Skydiving have managed to recreate the adrenalized thrill of freefalling sans the previously required airplane. In the studio’s unique flight room, ersatz divers hover several feet above ground as wind-powered force neutralizes the effects of gravity around them. While a typical outdoor skydive lasts only about a minute, Flyaway delivers a minimum of three straight minutes of simulated freefall, ensuring massive endorphin rushes and flashbacks to past lives spent as a Canadian goose. Before liftoff, the facility’s experienced trainers fill visitors in on everything they need to know about body control, safety procedures, and effective screaming techniques. Classes begin every 30 minutes and operate on a first come, first serve basis. Height and weight restrictions apply.
