  • iFLY Indoor Skydiving - SF Bay - Arrive at iFLY San Francisco Bay and get started by putting on your gear and going through a specialized training session from an expert flight instructor.

You’ll learn how to safely float in an 800-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air - commonly used by professional skydivers - without having to jump from a plane. Just about anyone can fly, and no experience is necessary.

Once you’re inside the enclosed space of the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel the adrenaline rush as you float at wind speeds reaching 130 to 175 mph (209 to 282 kph). The stable wall-to-wall airflow keeps you from falling off the column of air, and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you.

The entire indoor skydiving experience takes about 75 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to six people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor for 60 seconds in the wind tunnel twice.

  • All taxes, fees and handling charges included
  • Personal guidance by a certified flight instructor
  • Includes training and gear usage
  • Experience two flights per person

Birthday Party for 10yr old! - I booked "The Elevated" Birthday party package online for my daughter's 10th birthday. I purchased for the minimum of 6 flyers thinking I could add on if any additional kids came last minute, but weekends are super busy and by the time we confirmed 48 hours in advance, the day was fully booked. It worked out okay with a few "unable to attend". Unfortunately, I didn't warn the attendees of the strict time constraint and one of the kids missed the 10 minute cutoff and wasn't able to fly. The rest of the kids did have a great time and the included high-flight, photo, and video for each flyer was a nice bonus. It took less than an hour from the official 11am 'check-in' time we were booked for, gearing up, training session with the instructor, flights (including 4 others not in our party), and undressing. Shawn was a great instructor for the kids. They're fairly efficient on a fully booked Saturday, and it helped that all the kids had their waivers filled out in advance. Our party room was ready for us at noon and we moved right in. Online Info on the Birthday party accommodations was limited, and I didn't get a chance to ask the party coordinator about the details. The party room had a refrigerator full of sodas, and there was a cold/hot water dispenser and a Keurig coffee maker available. The table was set up with a tablecloth, a couple of balloon weights (no balloons), plates and napkins, and we were provided 3 large pizzas (we were able to choose the toppings in advance when providing the final count of attendees). There was an additional table available that we set presents on, and they had additional napkins, forks and cups. We brought our own cake, cake cutter, candles, and lighter. . .so it's a lot more "hands off" for the staff than other places (like Pump it Up and Chuck E Cheese where they have dedicated hosts). We actually preferred this as space was limited in the room and it kept the experience more intimate. There was a window if we wanted to watch the fliers from the following sessions, and another window with a nice view out the front of the facility. A TV was also available, but we didn't use it. 1 hour was plenty of time for pizza, drinks, cake, and present opening. Important tips for event planners: *Set your invitation start time to be 15 mins before the 'check-in' time *Ask for RSVPs at least a week in advance of the party date (to get a final count by the time IFly calls) *A few days before the party, Send a reminder to all the flyers to arrive on time on flight day. . .better to come early than miss the flight experience altogether. *Bring additional decorations, we only had a banner, which we put up ourselves, but supposedly they'll put up decorations you provide if asked. *Ask the Ifly event coordinator any questions. . .she won't offer details unless asked. (Veteran moms cans ignore the advice above. . .I'm sure you're rolling your eyes and thinking 'duh', but this is coming from a mom that does these things few and far between me!)

More fun than we expexcted - What a great place to celebrate an occasion. In our case birthday celebration for my 71 year old woman and our 29 year old son and his girlfriend. Their smiles were priceless and I'm told mine was also. Kudos to Shawn (Shaun?) for his professionalism and enthusiasm. We'll definitely be back.
