Indoor skydiving is your chance to feel the amazing sensation of skydiving without jumping out of a plane. There is no falling sensation, you just float above the trampoline floor with ease.
You'll start out with a training class where you'll learn about flying in the wind tunnel and the use of your flight gear. Next, enjoy your flight rotations in the tunnel with 1-on-1 attention from your instructor. When you're back on solid ground, you'll receive a personalized flight certificate.
Indoor Skydiving is safe, fun and a great way for you to feel the thrill of skydiving. No experience is necessary and almost any age can participate!

The entire experience lasts about 1-1.5 hours, with 2 flight rotations per person. Each flight is approximately 1 minute, which is equivalent to 1-2 real skydives. Many flyers find that each minute feels much longer, due to the adrenaline involved with flying in a 120 MPH wind stream. Most people find 2 flight rotations to be an ideal amount for beginners.
1 person flies at a time. 12 -15 participants per class.
Yes! Guests are welcome to accompany participants and may watch from the complimentary observation area.

What is indoor skydiving?
Indoor Skydiving is the closest thing to skydiving you'll ever get without having to jump out of an airplane. It's so realistic that professional skydivers use the tunnel to practice and master their moves, yet safe enough for people of all ages without any experience to learn how to fly.
Do I need skydiving experience?
No, you do not need skydiving experience. The tunnel is designed for beginners to enjoy the sensation of free fall and body flight in a safe environment. You will receive excellent training prior to your time in the tunnel.
Do I have to jump at all?
Indoor skydiving offers the freedom and excitement of skydiving, but without the jump or hard fall. In the tunnel, your instructor will assist you in leaning directly into the wind flow so you will be lifted up. An instructor will be with you 1-on-1 while you are in the tunnel.
Can I do tricks and flips in the tunnel?
The first concern is for your safety in the flight chamber, so tricks or flips are done by experienced flyers only. Some flyers are able to do turns and move up and down and front to back on their first flight. Be sure to ask your instructor how to advance your flight skills. Once you develop those skills, you will find tunnel flying to be one of the most exciting sports you've ever experienced.
Is it safe?
Yes. The tunnel's unique wall to wall air column design and professionally trained instructors allow flyers to safely enjoy their flight session. Your flight instructor is with you throughout your entire flight experience.
How old do you have to be to fly?
Children 3 years of age and older can fly in the tunnel. The staff are trained to provide a safe and fun environment for your friends and loved ones. A waiver must be signed by a parent or legal guardian for anyone under the age of 18.

"There were 5 of us and everyone was pretty scared going into this experience. Ages from adult in 60s, down to 11 years old. Our instructor (Kyle) was warm, friendly, understanding and a true professional. He not only made the experience enjoyable, but got two of us to go up high on the second round. I would suggest that Cloud 9 Living add a line that extra charges (i.e., video, certain helmet, high fly and extra turns) may be applied. Also, there is no food in the iFly building, but there are places a few feet away so the kids can eat. Overall the experience was terrific and a great gift for the 11 year old's birthday with her friends!!"
"As a senior citizen I was leery of trying this, but loved it and the guide was very patient with me."
