The O2 London, where iFly’s brand new state of the art indoor skydiving centre is located.
What happens on the day?
You should allow around 2 hours for your visit. When you arrive you’ll need to sign a statement of risk to confirm your state of health and fitness. If you’re under 18 this will need to be signed by your parent/guardian.
The indoor skydiving experience at iFLY London begins with a briefing and training session, where participants are given an overview of the experience and instructed on how to fly in the wind tunnel.
Once training is complete, participants are fitted with a flight suit, helmet, and goggles before entering the wind tunnel. The wind tunnel is a vertical tunnel that simulates the sensation of freefall by generating powerful winds that lift participants off the ground.
Now you’re ready for your flights! You enter the tunnel and the air is gently switched on to lift you into a flying position. It’s time to put your training into practise. Once your flights are completed you receive the DVD of your flight if you’ve ordered photos or video, plus your flight certificate.
The experience is suitable for people of all ages and skill levels. The wind tunnel is adjustable, which means that the wind speeds can be increased or decreased depending on the participant’s experience level. First-time flyers can start with a slower wind speed while more experienced flyers can progress to faster speeds.
Serving London and the South East, the wind tunnel at The O2 is conveniently located at the top of the Greenwich Peninsula in central London. Formerly known as the ‘Millennium Dome’, the O2 is an entertainment district that includes a large sports and music arena, cinema, restaurants, bars and shopping centre, ICON.
