When we got the opportunity to go and experience an indoor flight at iFly Indoor Skydiving, to say I was excited was an understatement! The flight is recommended from the ages of 3+. Mia turned 3 not long ago, but she is the biggest daredevil and pretty fearless that I knew she would love this experience.
iFly Indoor Skydiving is located in Sydney West, Gold Coast and Perth. We attended the Sydney West facility located in Penrith, right next to the Penrith Panthers entertainment complex.
Our flight was booked at 4pm but they require you to check in an hour before so we were there at 3pm. We filled out the necessary forms in preparation for the flights.
As soon as you enter, you see the ‘tunnel’ with all the flyers doing their thing. Some flyers are beginners, while others are more advanced and you totally get wowed by some of the cool tricks and turns they can do inside.
Mia watched on eagerly as we explained to her she will be going in to fly like a superhero! I couldn’t take part in the experience as I am pregnant, but Daddy was with her every step of the way.
30 mins before the scheduled flight time, Mia and Daddy were taken into a room to be inducted and to meet their instructor, Jimmy. They were shown an instructional video and then issued out their jumpsuit, goggles and helmet for the flight. Mia got the option to wear a superhero jumpsuit which she absolutely loved and it was seriously too cute!
All the flyers lined up one by one to wait their turn to go into the tunnel and take their flight with Jimmy. Mia watched as Daddy went in first. Once Daddy came out, Mia walked in and Jimmy took her around to get a feel for what it really would be like to be a superhero! She was flying and loving every second of it.
I have to say that I was waiting anxiously outside worried that she was going to be scared, but Jimmy was such a lovely instructor and really took care of her and made her feel safe.
It was truly an amazing experience that I would absolutely recommend that the whole family can enjoy together.
