This Epic Wind Tunnel In Arizona Is Perfect For An Adventurous Day Trip
Looking to add something new to your bucket list? You’ll find tons of adventurous things to do all around Arizona, whether it includes white water rafting, canyoneering, or hiking to the tops of mountains. If you’re looking for something that will give you an adrenaline rush, you can choose from any of the adventures above or…
...perhaps give skydiving a try!
Although there are places around the state where you can conquer your fear of jumping thousands of feet from a flying aircraft, not all of us are brave enough to
actually jump from a plane. Luckily, there’s a way to experience the invigorating feeling of flying through the sky in a safer, controlled setting.
Are you ready for a rush
without the panic attack-inducing danger of jumping from a plane? Check out SkyVenture Arizona!
SkyVenture is one of three indoor skydiving venues in the state (the other two are located in Scottsdale and Yuma).
SkyVenture is located near the airport in Eloy, about halfway between Phoenix and Tucson.
Indoor skydiving utilizes a large wind tunnel that safely lifts you several feet off the ground while giving you the weightless the experience of flying.
The air speeds here simulate up to 150 mile per hour freefall - just without the falling part!
Your adventure begins by meeting your instructor and watching a safety training video about using the wind tunnel.
From there, you'll suit up and get ready to fly!
You'll enter the wind tunnel and have some one-on-one instruction time with your experienced skydiving teacher.
Don't worry - you won't be doing any crazy tricks like this - these are some of the instructors showing off their skills!
As you can see, the professionals here have spent hundreds of hours training and practicing in the wind tunnel. They will always be by your side to keep you safe while you fly - and make sure you have a fantastic time!
Even the kids can join in on the fun!
Young flyers must be at least three years old and have a signed parental release form.
Are you ready to fly? We are!
Please note: closed-toe athletic shoes and comfortable clothing are required, so make sure to come prepared!
SkyVenture Arizona is located at 4900 North Taylor Street in Eloy.
