This Epic Wind Tunnel In New York Is Perfect For An Adventurous Day Trip
Something most of us are already well aware of, New York is quite an adventurous place to live. You’ve probably already crossed off exciting outdoor adventures that you can take in the Empire State like climbing our mountains, floating through our gorges, zip lining, and so much more. But something you may not have discovered quite yet? This extraordinary indoor skydiving adventure that’s one-of-a-kind!
The only indoor skydiving adventure in all of New York state, iFLY Westchester is right in the city of Yonkers.
There are tons of places all across New York where you can actually go skydiving... but not all of us are up for that kind of adventure! At iFLY Westchester, you can enjoy the experience of free-falling all without having to actually jump out of a plane that's thousands of feet up in the air.
Visitors will get to step inside of a vertical wind tunnel, sending them up into an adventure that they'll never forget.
So how exactly does this whole thing work? It's more simple than you might think. At the top of the wind tunnel there are big fans that draw air through the tunnel and then push the air back down to the sides. The vortex of air creates a smooth flow, allowing perfect conditions for indoor skydiving.
So, what will you need to do before your first ride in New York's only wind tunnel?
As rhetorical as it may seem, you'll want to wear casual clothes (ie. shirts and pants) that you'll feel comfortable wearing underneath the iFLY flight suit. Flyers are also suggested to wear lace-up sneakers or running shoes and to refrain from wearing any shirts that have hoods or collars.
For anyone who hasn't visited iFLY in the last three months or is a first-time flyer, you'll be required to attend a training session before you step into the wind tunnel. The training session will give you a chance to prepare for your flight with one of the instructors here.
The entire iFLY adventure usually falls just short of 2-hours, giving you time to check-in, take your training session, enjoy your vertical flight and check out photos of your flight afterward.
To ensure that you never forget the adventure you took with iFLY, during your flight one of their team members will be taking photos of you! After you're done with your flight and step out of your gear, you'll be able to check out all of your photos and even purchase some to take home with you. Another bonus? If you're unsure about what picture you want, you can purchase them later as they're kept online for up to 6 months after your flight.
Who's ready to go for a ride in New York's only indoor skydiving wind tunnel?
Fully equipped with a flight suit, helmet, goggles, and earplugs, visitors of iFLY will get the chance to purchase either 2, 3, 4 or 5 flights. Each flight lasts 60 seconds and a 'High Flight' can also be purchased as well, taking flyers higher and faster during the last 20 seconds of their final flight. At iFLY Westchester prices range from 2 Flights for $89.95 to 5 Flights for $168.95.
