What to Wear:
All participants wear a safety belt, so you must wear something that covers your stomach to avoid any rubbing or irritation. Fitted or tight clothing that allows you to move freely is usually best (tights, yoga pants, or capris) but is not mandatory. A pair of socks or light fitted slippers to wear while you're flying will make walking in the net easier and more comfortable. You can not wear sneakers while flying but you may wear sandals or sneakers between turns.
For this experience, it is recommended to request bookings at least 14 days in advance.
Once you have received a booking confirmation, cancellations and rescheduling are allowed up to 14 days prior to the experience. Failure to appear on your booked date or to cancel and reschedule at least 14 days prior to your booked date will result in the loss of the value of your experience.

Is it safe?
Flying Trapeze is very safe in a controlled environment like the one we provide for our participants. We take safety very seriously.

All of the instructors must pass a safety standards checklist before working the rig and they are required to maintain these high standards to maintain their employment.

"Shane, Pablo and Russel were amazing, patient and encouraging! "
"Trapeze with 'I Fly Li' was amazing! The instructors were so friendly and encouraging! I would definitely do this again. We had a great time!"
"We had the trapeze lessons for two last Saturday and had a blast! The staff gave great instruction and feedback to help us improve our experience. Best of all, the staff was enthusiastic and fun. My only critique concerns the information provided about the location. A street address was provided, but it would have been helpful to know that the venue was located in Eisenhower Park near the aquatic center. Also, you should tell customers that they will need to pay a park fee if they are not residents of Nassau County. Luckily we had some cash with us!"
