Indoor SkyDiving has been on my bucket list for a while. I was sooo excited that it worked out to finally cross it off my list during a recent trip to the Gatlinburg area. Now that I’ve experienced this adventure, I’ve got reasons for you to add it to your list too!
1. It’s a guilt-free risk
I would still like to try skydiving but that adventure weighs more on me now that I’m a parent. Indoor Skydiving is a lot safer which means way less guilt for trying it. Indoor Skydiving takes place in a vertical wind tunnel that allows you to feel what it’s like to fly.
2. Your kids can try it too!
My boys were going to try indoor skydiving ….and then they changed their mind in the safety training ….and then one of my sons changed his mind….. and decided that he wanted to trying after watching me have a successful run at it.
*Make sure that you check the website for height, age, and weight restrictions.
3. It’s safe
Before you try indoor skydiving for the first time you go through a 20 training session that informs you of signals and safety procedures to ensure the best experience possible.
During your flight you have a helmet, safety suit and you are required to practice a few safety rolls onto the mat before your session begins.
4. The feeling of flying is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!
I could not stop smiling during this experience! This adventure lets you truly get a taste of what it’s like to fly. It was like a dream come true to float in the air.
5. You can show off the video of your experience to your family and friends.
It’s great to relive your flight over and over.
6 You have an excuse to go back
The instructors are extremely encouraging which helps give you a positive experience in a short amount of time. (Thank you Nathan!)
The instructors will inspire you with their skills. The more you fly the more you can try.
Our family had a great experience and I hope to have many more indoor skydiving adventures in our future.

I’ve been wanting to check out the newer style.
Great review – this facility is much older than most of the rest around the USA (with the exception of las vegas). It’s a different experience, but a great one IMO! You should try a newer facility and see what you think!
Flyaway is a historic wind tunnel in the world of Indoor Skydiving. (since 1982)
Indoor sky diving sounds insane. This is definitely something I would try when life becomes crazy again. Safe travels. Jonny
Have to confess, we’ve never heard of indoor skydiving before. Sounds like a much safer way to feel what it’s like than the real thing.
