Once you see the positively joyful expressions on people who are doing Indoor Skydiving, you realize how much fun it is to leave gravity behind and take to the air. This is what happens daily at Flyaway Indoor Skydiving on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. And you can experience the joy of flight in America’s first vertical wind tunnel.
The experience at Flyaway is a very personalized one as you are individually coached and instructed on how to use your body to provide the lift to take to the air and ‘fly’ in the wind tunnel. There is no experience needed, the instructors at Flyaway will teach you all you need to know to body fly indoors. In a 20 minute training class you are taught body control techniques and safety procedures. After that, you are suited-up with a flying suit, helmet and goggles. Then there is a review of the basics and you head to the tunnel to take flight!
Classes are conducted on the hour and half-hour during business hours and registration is on a first come, first served basis. You should be in good physical condition with no previous shoulder or back problems, and minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is at least 21 years old. There are height and weight restrictions and children must weigh at least 40 pounds.
Flyaway Indoor Skydiving is a safe and fun attraction to try when you are in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. There are great photo opportunities and many opportunities to brag about your ability to fly. Talk about a memory that will last a lifetime, this is it!
