iFly Sacramento Is Worth The Drive From Elk Grove
If you’re looking for something to do with your family, iFly Sacramento in Roseville offers the only indoor skydiving experience in the Sacramento area. Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. It’s a thrilling physical activity that your whole family will love.
Book A Flight
It’s easy to book a flight online and the whole experience is enjoyable. Each flight is a minute and you can pay for extra minutes when you check-in. All flight packages include Training, Personalized Instruction, Flight Gear, and a Personalized Flight Certificate. Two flights for one person is $69.95. Four flights for one person is $109.95. Four flights shared by two people is $139.95. Ten flights shared by up to five people is $299.95. They offer you the option of purchasing a Top Flight package which includes an extra minute of flying time, a pic, and a video for each person.
When you first arrive you check-in and then go into Pre-Flight Training. Pre-Flight Training is very simple. You just watch a short video where you learn about indoor skydiving. They teach you the signals for “straight legs,” “bend legs,” “chin up,” and “relax.” The instructor is very knowledgeable and you’re welcome to ask questions. Afterwards you dress up in a suit, a helmet, goggles, and ear plugs and head inside the chamber for your flight.
It’s important to note that indoor skydiving isn’t recommended for pregnant women, or people who have a heart condition. You will be fine if you’re in good general health.
The actual experience of indoor flying is thrilling. It’s actually a lot more physically demanding than I expected. The instructor will stay with you to make sure that you are safe and have a good experience. You have to try to lay somewhat flat with your hands next to your head and your knees slightly bent. You also have a ton of wind pressure coming at you. The instructor will grab you if you’re about to go flying in the wrong direction. So you do not need to worry about anything. I recommend just trying to relax and watching the instructor for signals.
I highly recommend trying the “High Fly” experience. For the “High Fly” option the instructor holds onto you and really helps you to go high and all over the chamber. You can see the “High Fly” in the video above. They also do tricks with you to enhance your experience. My family personally had a blast.
On Wednesday nights from 6-8pm iFly has a special class called “Flight School.” Flight School is for kids ages 4-16. The kids get one on one coaching and learn a progression of flying schools in a fun group setting. Kids will learn basics like belly and back flying. They will eventually learn the skills needed to do group formations in the wind tunnel. Every session is taught by an experienced flight instructor who is highly trained in safety standards and certified by the International Bodyflight Association (IBA). A single session of Flight School costs $69.95. A one month program costs $239.80. If you book four sessions you can save $40. You can find out more information about Flight School HERE.
