even more fun than biking

I got taken to iFLY yesterday and must admit I didn't really want to participate :? but within seconds of my first flight I was hooked :P and have already booked further sessions :twisted:

walked out of the tube at the end of our play time and said to the Mrs "that's better than biking" at which point she nearly fainted :shock:

2 minutes of total pleasure without the squelching noises :o

cheers Spud ;)

Looks like a good laugh. Wouldn't mind trying the real thing sometime but the indoor version looks great.

If you just pulled your arms and legs in to your body would you just crash to the bottom?

Even better out of a plane, but then you only get about 45sec of 'flying/ dropping' :D

Flight control is from body position controlling air flow and air resistance so yup that's what the nets for at the bottom above the humungous fan 8-)
