Ask for Jason as your flight instructor. My family and I had an AWESOME time. Your time in the wind tunnel passes quickly, but worth well it!
Amazing!!! Loved it!!! Awesome!!! Will do it again! Braxton was highly professional! Informative, go do it!!
I was just passing by on my way home today and decided to check it out. I was planning on coming back later with a friend. I was greeted immediately when I entered the door. Young guy at the desk told... read more »
Amazing time. Costly but worth it. I've always wanted to do a wind tunnel and finally got a chance too. This location was super clean and the workers were very nice and helpful. At first I thought I was going to be dismayed with the service because the counter girl today was sick - coughing and sneezing and still helping people which I thought was nasty but I had my trusty Purell. Check was easy, they had several computer monitors around to do that. FYI you have to make reservations, no drop ins. The packages start at $70 for 1 (1 min) flight and go up from there with options for video, pictures, advance learning in flight with the capability of doing it with friends in the tunnel at once. I opted for the 2 flight option with high fly experience (where the instructor guides you up higher than normal - not the very top). Luckily there was a 10% military discount - came out to be about $85. The bottom floor sold paraphernalia - t shirts ($17-$25), key chain fobs, hats, helmets, pencils, and more. Upstairs is where the magic happens. You get to sit and watch other groups in the tunnel until it's your groups' turn for getting ready. This floor of course had the tunnel, a counter for supplies, lockers (free) for your belongings and a little area I guess for meetings or parties. Everything again was super clean and organized. First the group goes into a room and watch a 4 min education video. They teach you 4 hand signals - for chin up, relax, bend legs and straighten legs. There were 3 other rules given by the instructor but I only remember 2 - smile and hold still. Our instructor was very animated and made the group feel at ease. It seemed like all the instructors were very patient and energetic. After the video, we got our supplies: suits (worn over clothing), goggles, ear plugs, and helmets. They had some helmets completed with face shields. Next we were escorted to the tunnel. There was a seating area inside. There was a video monitor with a 2 min lapse so you could watch yourself upon your return back to the room. I'm glad I picked 2 flights because you don't know what to expect the first time around. Upon entering, the force of the wind really caught me off guard, it was kind of hard to catch my breath with all the wind in your face but then I relaxed and it was fun. The instructor was very good about positioning you and cueing you on body position and keeping you from hitting the walls and stuff but you didn't feel rough handed just gentle guidance. The 2nd time was great, especially when he guides you to the top for a few spins. Afterwards, he showed us how a pro does it. They all look very agile moving thru the air with expertise and exiting back first thru the door. I wouldn't mind learning more to be able to do some of that. I loved how encouraging he was with the feedback for each person. GREAT EXPERIENCE. Suggested for ages 6+
I took my boyfriend here for his 21st birthday and we both had an amazing time! Very memorable day! It is a little pricey, if it were cheaper I would go all the time!
Great experience with my family. Staff is really friendly. However, price was pretty steep. We bought the family package with a one minute video clip. Price was roughly $85+ per person for 2 minutes each in the tunnel.
Amazing! A once in a lifetime experience! Me and my whole family went even my 4 year old flew. Loved the high-fly experience, I felt like I was on a Rollercoaster it was just as scary. Staff is amazing, friendly, and energetic.
Wonderful experience. Definitely will try again and again. Staffs are nice. If the price a little bit cheaper, it will be even better.
