"What an amazing time for the whole family at IFLY!"
March, 2015
We recently went to IFLY with four of my relatives. They are all between the ages of 50 and 65 and in good health. I was unsure of how they would do with it or if any of them would chicken out when they arrived. To my surprise all of them went and had an absolutely amazing time. They will not stop talking and bragging to everyone they see. They said they want more! Highly suggest going this is an awesome experience.

Tip: If you go with a group. Schedule in different time so you can take pictures otherwise they will take your camera away ( of course they return it at the end of the session. If you smile big chances are that your saliva goes out.

"Unique and exciting experience, teenagers loved it."

The experience it's self was fantastic for my teenage daughter and her friends. The online reservation was easy and checkin was fast. Our instructor was very nice and friendly. The reason for only 4 stars is because I purchased a family pack PLUS a high diving experience ($9.95 more) . It was my daughters bday, since there were 3 girls they split the time of the family pack up 3 ways - which was explained they would have the same amount of time. However her two friends when in twice for their allotted time and she went in once. She also received her high diving experience - so a total of 2 times. We felt like they forgot her 2nd time for the standard dive, but after we were done it was explained that she got her time for the standard diving and then added time to her high diving - it still did not really make sense and she felt a little jipped. Overall it was a great experience and we would return. But make sure you ask questions if your not sure of the package details. Also note that the actual amount of time sky diving is minimal, 60 seconds on average, with a package you may get 2 dives. You also wait for other parties to do their skydiving, so that is where 1.5 to 2 hours come into play.

Kids loved it and staff went above and beyond. Left valet parking ticket at iFly and worst car parking service ever wouldn't let us have our car unless we paid them $50 for missing ticket even though they knew we went to iFly. Well, the employees at iFly ran the ticket all the way down CityWalk and got us our car free of charge. iFly is great and their service is excellent!

We brought this from Costco online, and registered on iFly website. We arrived much earlier than reservation time, staffs changed our time without any question and put us into training group. Flying wasn't easy at all, hard to keep balance, I felt my face skin was flying too because of strong air blowing up. Each of us tried few times, I couldn't maintain the balance at all, instructor had to drag me to keep my balance, but it was fun.

This is a modern wind tunnel that simulates a skydiving experience. Since the air speed is controlled and you have an instructor in the tunnel with you at all times, the experience is extremely safe for all ages. I've taken people 60+ and kids that were 5 years of age. Only restriction is the person can't have any prior back or shoulder injuries. this is one of the key places i take people when visiting from out of town. For first time jumpers, limit your time to 5min. You will be too tired if you do any more. Any less time...you will feel robbed. enjoy

Frequently Asked Questions about iFly Hollywood

What is a wind tunnel?
A wind tunnel, in this case, a vertical wind tunnel, is the machine that produces the column of air you float on in the flight chamber. It has fans at the top with the purpose of drawing the air up past you. You experience a controlled environment providing you just the right amount of air flow for the utmost flight enjoyment.

How long is a flight?
Each flight within the wind tunnel lasts for 60 seconds. When jumping out of an airplane, the free fall portion last approx. 45 seconds. If you reserve a package that contains 2 flights, you will have 2 turns in the wind tunnel with an instructor lasting 60 seconds each. The entire iFLY first-time flyer experience takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes from start to finish.

How old do you have to be?
Flyers can be as young as 3 years of age. There is no upper age limit. Children under 18 years of age need to have a parent or guardian sign their waiver.

Who can fly?
There’s no experience requirement, so beginners, intermediates and experts can all fly.  All flyers must be in good health and physical condition. If you have had a prior shoulder dislocation or back or neck problems you should not fly. Pregnant women should not fly.

Is there a weight restriction?
Those less than 6 feet tall must weigh less than 230 pounds, and those over 6 feet must weigh less than 250 pounds.

Is it safe?
Our unique design with its wall-to-wall air column, along with our certified and highly-trained instructors, allows you to safely enjoy your flight session. Your flight instructor is with you through your entire flight experience regardless of your level of experience.

Is it scary?
Generally it is not considered scary; there is NO jumping or any sensation of falling. You simply float on a column of air. There is no sensation of falling or anything that would make you feel motion sickness.

Is it hard to breathe?
Not at all. It is the same as if you stick your head out a car window while driving. All you feel is the wind in your face. Just breathe normally, either through your mouth or your nose.

Can I fly with my friends or family members?
We generally fly with several people in each session. Your friends/family will be part of the same group however you will fly one at a time in the flight chamber one-on-one with your instructor. Once you have gained more flight experience then you will be able to fly with others of the same skill level in the tunnel. If someone chooses to come to watch, they are welcome to accompany you through your experience and can watch from the observation area.

What time should I get there?
First-time flyers should arrive 60 minutes before the time you booked to fly. That gives you the time to check in, complete your waiver, attend the training session and change into your flight gear. Return flyers should arrive about 1/2 hour before your scheduled flight time.

Why do I need to wear a flight suit?
The instructors are trained to grasp the handles of your flight suit should you need spotting.
Can I do trick and flips in the tunnel?
iFLY’s first concern is for your safety in the flight chamber so the tricks or flips are done by experienced flyers only. Some flyers are able to do turns, move up and down and front to back during their first flight.

Can I wear my glasses?
Yes. We have larger goggles that fit over eyeglasses.

Will I need to take off my watch and jewelry?
Yes. You should remove any items that might flap around or become loose, such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, rings, and hair accessories. In addition, you should remove everything from your pockets. We do have lockers for your use, but we recommend that you leave anything valuable at home as we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen property.

Do I have to do the training session?
All first-time flyers are required to take the training class. You’ll get a lot of important and helpful information as well as some pre-flight practice of your flying position. If you’ve flown with us once within the last three months, you don’t have to do the training session again and can book a flight as a Return Flyer.

How much is parking?
We offer all first-time flyers 2.5hrs of FREE valet parking at the Jurassic Parking Garage. We suggest that all our guests staying for no more than 2.5hrs take advantage of this amazing offer. Our experience takes about 1.5hrs to complete for up to15 flyers.
*Please note, after 2.5hrs the max. flat rate of $30 will be charged. For General Parking, the rate is $16 and the daytime Preferred Parking is $22. We recommend, that our guests park in Curious George, the closest garage to iFLY Hollywood.
