Defy gravity with skill, style, and courage at iFLY Chicago - Lincoln Park. If you have dreamt of flying since you were young, live your dreams within a skydiving simulator. Bringing you state-of-the-art technologies, flying has never been this easy. Enjoy an unforgettable experience at the iFLY wind tunnel venue at the Universal CityWalk. Professional flight instructors will give you one-on-one instruction on how to make different body positions to control how you fly inside the tunnel. Receive complimentary skydive gear rental and the actual flight experience at a fraction of the cost of a tandem jump, but with much longer freefall time. The gravity-defying flight itself lasts for 2 minutes. Each wind tunnel has multiple large fans that can blow a wind of up to 185mph (300kph), and a pressurized staging area that can fit up to 12 flyers at one time. Safe for kids, challenging for adults, exciting for teens, and realistic for skydivers, the iFLY experience will leave you smiling from cheek to cheek.
