Where are we going today?

Have you ever wanted to fly? Well, unless you're in a plane or skydiving, we might have to work on it...BUT lucky for you iFly Seattle exists so you can experience the same feeling - but safely and MUCH closer to the ground!

iFly Seattle gives you a realistic indoor skydiving experience. It certainly is fun for kids, as well as exciting for teens, AND great for adults! The perfect family experience! It's also very realistic for those who love skydiving - so don't think you're missing out!

If you have never even been close to skydiving, then there's no need to worry, because iFly Seattle is for everyone, not matter now much experience you have.

So are you excited? Because iFly Seattle is actually...FLYING!

How it works, is you head into a column of air inside a vertical wind tunnel, where you then soar on it! They use unique, superior technology with multiple fans located at the top of the flight chamber. This produces a wall to wall airflow which is smooth, and of course FUN to fly in!

It sounds a bit awkward, but don't worry - it's completely comfortable! The professional instructors that are on site also help, and all these factors give you an exciting flying experience!

Overall, it's not considered a scary experience. You don't fall, you don't have to jump, and you can be a complete beginner. You're just floating on air! And because you're not falling, you won't get motion sickness! 

It is a bird...is it a plane...no...it's YOU at IFly Seattle! Soar like the birds!

I'm Hungry!

You're in Seattle! There are so many places to grab something to eat....so you can fill those rumbling stomachs!.

Healthy Eating!

Any Top Tips?

Wear well fitting, lace up sneakers. Running shoes are also good, but no other shoes are. Make sure you have casual clothes too .

Doing our bit

They are about safety, so make sure you take note to the maximum 6 foot in height, and less than 230lbs restrictions. .

Need a little extra help?

All flyers must be in good physical condition, and in good health. Some centers can fly people with certain disabilities, like amputees, so just call to check! .

Can I get one of those?

You get a personalized flight certificate at the end of it!.

More information

The entire first time flyer package is just over an hour, and that includes 60 seconds in the tunnel. You can book packages with 2 flights. .

    Super fun! I wish I still lived in Seattle so I could keep going and eventually do aerial somersaults! I took my dad (a pilot) for father's day and we both had a blast. The instructor was engaging and obviously loves doing this outside of his day job, and we bonded with the other people in our flight time. Great experience overall, just make sure not to lose their gift certificates because they don't issue credit for lost cards.

    I have to jump in and correct some misinformation in one of the other reviews. "they turn it down 25 mph for everyone except the staff, to make it seem hard to stay up so you'll keep coming back trying to get 'better'"

    This is incorrect and any skydiver will corroborate. There are two primary types of flight: belly and freefly. Belly flight, which is what guests do, requires less wind because you have more of your body exposed and are easier to lift. Freeflying, what the instructors and experienced "tunnel rats" do, typically consists of being...Read More

    The good: got to try the feeling of skydiving without jumping out of anything

    The bad: sketchy business practices like asking for confirmation that you want an added cost high flight while you have earplugs in and are standing at the doorway of a turbine, or spending a good portion of a minute directing you towards the camera so you can buy pictures

    Useful info: They have lockers there. Wear pants, not a skirt/kilt.

This is incorrect and any skydiver will corroborate. There are two primary types of flight: belly and freefly. Belly flight, which is what guests do, requires less wind because you have more of your body exposed and are easier to lift. Freeflying, what the instructors and experienced "tunnel rats" do, typically consists of being in a seated, standing, or head down orientation. Much less of your body is exposed and thus you need more wind to keep you flying.

Typical belly skydive speeds are 120mph and that's approximately what they simulate in the tunnel. Freefly speeds are typically 145 mph, which is why they boost the wind.

Please don't spread misinformation stated as fact.
