Highlights
  • 800 W Scott St - Upon reaching the indoor skydiving facility in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, begin your adventure by suiting up in the provided equipment and participating in a comprehensive training session led by a flight instructor.\n\nDiscover the art of hovering in a 1,400-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that creates a continuous air cushion, a tool often employed by expert skydivers. Enjoy the excitement of skydiving without the need to jump out of an airplane, and rest assured that no prior experience is required.\n\nAs you enter the flight chamber’s confined area, a tunnel technician gradually increases the wind velocity until you and your instructor are lifted into the air. Experience the rush of ‘free falling’ in wind speeds that can reach up to 180 mph (290 kph). The consistent airflow prevents you from slipping off the air stream, and your instructor is always present to assist you. The initial flying experience lasts approximately 75 minutes. The session accommodates up to 12 participants, yet you receive personalized attention from your instructor during two 60-second flights in the tunnel.

Additional Information

Upon reaching the indoor skydiving site at Chicago’s Lincoln Park, begin by donning the supplied equipment and partake in an in-depth instruction session courtesy of a qualified flight tutor.

Master the art of safely hovering in a 1,400-horsepower vertical wind channel that produces a continuous cushion of air, a tool frequently used by seasoned skydivers. Immerse yourself in the excitement of skydiving without the need to leap from a plane, irrespective of your experience level.

After entering the confined arena of the flight cylinder, a channel specialist gradually increases the wind velocity until both you and your tutor are off the ground. As the ‘free fall’ takes off at wind speeds scaling up to 180 mph (290 kph), embrace the adrenaline rush. The consistent wind current prevents you from slipping off the air column, while your tutor is perpetually available for assistance. The initial flyer experience lasts approximately 75 minutes. Each slot accommodates up to 12 participants, however, you get to fly solo with your tutor in the wind channel twice for 60 seconds.

A Christmas to Remember - Shout out to the GM, Joe, and Bryan! Very professional, personable, and accommodating. My husband, 8 year old daughter, and 17 year old son flew on Christmas day. My daughter wanted Santa to make her fly. She couldn't believe it! This was a perfect gift for the whole family!

A great experience because of the great staff - We took our 16 year-old grandson for this experience. The entire staff was amazing - safety was their priority yet everyone doing it had fun. Bryan and Jocelynn were his instructors and were really fantastic.

Fun experience, even for the instructors! - This was a fun experience. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we bought some additional flights while there to use at a different time. The staff was super friendly and clearly excited with their jobs making us feel very welcome. It is a definitely a different experience from jumping out of a plane not only because you do not have the extreme height sensation, but you actually experience a much longer "free-fall" allowing you to do more tricks and than you would jumping out of a plane.

Fun afternoon! - Joe at the front desk is highly professional, knowledgeable and joyful. He’s perfect for his job! It was the first time for everyone in our group. Our instructor, Tommy, was thorough, patient and a calming influence. David controlled the air flow and offered tips and directions for a more comfortable flight. Definitely book the high flight!!! It is actually much more fun and relaxing than the lower level flight. You will feel safe and secure with this flight crew! Thanks for a fun afternoon! Pat and Mona
