    Frequently Asked Questions

    The answers provided below are based on answers previously given by the tour provider to customers’ questions.

    Filter by:

    Q:How does the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience work?

    A:A vertical wind tunnel has fans at the top to draw air through the flight chamber and then push it back down the sides. The air is then compressed & sped up before it reenters the flight chamber causing a smooth column of air that enables you to fly.

    May 2021

    Q:How safe is the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience?

    A:The unique design of the wind tunnel, with its wall-to-wall air column, along with certified and highly-trained instructors, allows you to safely enjoy your flight. Your instructor is with you the entire time regardless of your level of experience.

    May 2021

    Q:What is a Wind Tunnel?

    A:Very simply, a wind tunnel is a machine that moves a lot of air. A vertical wind tunnel moves air in a vertical column at speeds high enough to keep a person safely floating.

    May 2021

    Q:How early should I arrive for the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience?

    A:It is important that you arrive on time for your scheduled session. Your experience will begin promptly upon your arrival so please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early for your reservation so you have time to check in.

    May 2021

    Q:Do I fly alone or with a group during the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience?

    A:Generally, a group of up to 12 guests fly in each session. Your friends and 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.

    May 2021

    Q:How long is each flight during the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience?

    A:Each flight within the wind tunnel lasts 60 seconds. The entire iFLY first-time flyer experience takes approx. 1 hour and 30 minutes from start to finish.

    May 2021

    Q:Can I bring family/friends to watch, but not participate in the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience?

    A:If someone chooses to come to watch, he or she is welcome to accompany you through your experience and can watch from the observation area.

    May 2021

    Q:Is it scary during the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience?

    A:Generally, no. There’s no jumping, no falling, and no experience is needed. You simply float on a column of air. There is no sensation of falling or anything that would make you feel motion sickness.

    May 2021

    Q:Is it hard to breathe during the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience?

    A: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.

    May 2021

    Q:Is the Chicago-Lincoln Park Indoor Skydiving Experience appropriate for younger children?

    A:Flyers can be as young as 3 years of age and there is no upper age limit. Children under 18 years of age need to have a parent or guardian sign their waiver.

    Being overcharged 20% by Viator over the normal skydiving charges the facility charges. I wish more consumers knew how you overcharged people.
    Fun experience, even for the instructors!
    Helen_B, Sep 2023
    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!
    Mona_J, Jul 2023
    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
