$69 for a Five-Minute Indoor-Skydiving Experience ($141.25 Value)
During a 25-minute preflight training session, instructors divulge indoor-skydiving safety tips and discuss basic hand signals for communicating while inside the vertical air chamber. Participants fit into provided flight suits, helmets, goggles, gloves, and pads before stepping into the chamber, where they are hoisted aloft for up to five minutes by winds travelling up to 225 km/h. Training sessions begin every 15 minutes, and visitors depart with souvenir T-shirts.
Niagara Freefall and Interactive Center
The 12-foot-wide vertical wind tunnel at Niagara Freefall and Interactive Center stretches 20 feet to the ceiling. Inside, it churns with currents of recirculating air—a system that allows its operators to control the wind conditions and temperature regardless of outside weather. Padded walls and floors, as well as trained instructors, keep those inside safe as they're borne aloft by currents of up to 120 miles per hour. Instructors prepare adventurers—who may be as young as 7 years old—for these turbulent conditions during preflight training sessions, during which they divulge flight physics, safety, and communication hand signals. They also encase their visitors in all necessary safety gear, such as helmets, pads, flight suits, and invisible force fields.

“My husband has always wanted to jump out of a plane and well lets just say that this was as close as I was comfortable with. Since it was on his bucket list I bought him a package for Christmas and he just did it a week ago and came out with a HUGE smile on his face! It isn't as easy as it looks and well after watching him through the glass and how he struggled lets just say that he will NEVER be allowed to jump out of plane in the future...he would be the one to land in trees! It was a great time and the kids want to try it next time! Thanks for some smiles and laughs!”

“Its harder than it looks, but great training and great fun”
