If you always wanted to experience the thrill of skydiving, but the thought of jumping out of a plane scares the bejeezus out you, there's still hope with Vegas Indoor Skydiving. The view may be different, but at least you wont have to worry about being the mosquito on the windshield. Sounds like a win-win to us.
After a brief training class you'll be fitted into your flight gear. Wear comfortable clothing, a short-sleeved shirt and tennis shoes (it gets hot in there!). Instead of plunging down - you'll soar up, inside a padded room with a fan that generates vertical winds up to 120 miles per hour. Once the propeller kicks into full gear, you'll float high above the netted floor.
Each person has a total of three turns to fly and the entire experience takes about an hour. Don't worry if you've never done anything like this before, it's fun for all ages and there's no experience required because you'll have a flight instructor.
After your experience, your hair will be a hot mess. But who cares? You had the time of your life. DVDs, custom photos and flash drives with your pictures are available for purchase as evidence that you defied gravity.
