Originally built for astronauts, vertical wind tunnels have since become popular practice areas for professional skydivers and space-bound barbershop quartets. Hone four-part harmonies while simulating flight with today’s Groupon: for $43, you get an Earn Your Wings Package and a multimedia package from iFly Hollywood in Universal City (an $87 value). This Groupon is not valid on Saturday. Today’s deal includes:
- Training session
- Flight-gear rentals
- Two one-minute flights in the vertical wind tunnel with hands-on assistance from an instructor
- Personalized flight certificate
- DVD recording of your session
iFly Hollywood’s state-of-the-art indoor wind tunnel lets acrophobic and aerophobic adrenaline junkies experience the sensations of skydiving under safe conditions. Prior to the session, individuals pile on a helmet, goggles, flight suit, earplugs, knee and elbow pads, and a can of gravity repellent. An instructor runs through basic maneuvers and hand signals during a training session, then unleashes students into the vertical tunnel’s artificial, 125-mph wind current for two one-minute rotations of air-swimming. Air acrobats take home a DVD recording of their flight, as well as a personalized flight certificate. iFly Hollywood’s free observation deck allows for maximum showoffiness, so invite along an audience of hard-to-impress friends, lovers, and butlers to marvel at your simulated plummet through the heavens.
iFLY Hollywood’s state-of-the-art indoor wind tunnel lets acrophobic and aerophobic adrenaline junkies experience the sensations of skydiving under safe conditions. iFLY Hollywood will suit you up with a helmet, goggles, flight suit, earplugs, and a can of gravity repellent, before an instructor teaches you the basic maneuvers and hand signals. Once you've learned a lesson, you'll be unleashed into the vertical tunnel’s artificial wind current for some air time at terminal velocity. The entire process lasts about an hour, including waiver signing (flyers under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign), a 15-minute class, and a flight slot during which your group takes turns flying. In addition to the flight experience, the multimedia package includes two souvenir photos.
Indoor skydiving is accessible to a wide, family-friendly age range, meaning that Grandma and Grandpa can celebrate their 60th anniversary with more than the traditional cake shaped like Andy Griffith. iFLY Hollywood’s free observation deck allows for maximum show-offiness, so invite along an audience of hard-to-impress friends, lovers, and butlers to marvel at your simulated plummet through the heavens.
