“worth the try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

imagine yourself floating in air...with a gush of wind blowing from below you....just like the sky diver...only difference you are just few feets from the ground. Little expensive,...but worth a try

“Disappointing this visit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

This isn't our first time to I-fly seems to be a big change in staff from previous visits. There was only 1 person handing out the overalls and helmets and he seemed overwhelmed and bad tempered, the children's helmets were very large and wobbling
I had to insist on Bennies for them as in the tunnel if the helmet moves too much it hurts, the instructor should know this he also omitted to take the children into the induction room and as 1 child had not visited before this was poor in my view. They had 13 people in the group so only had 2 very short flights and long waiting time. This could have been so much better. I spoke to the manager who gave us a USB with the pictures on it but in all the groups are far to large come on 13!! I think for the novelty of it it's good but not what it use to be. We visited at 11 am not sure if that makes a difference to staffing levels or not.

“Pricey, But Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

No question, this is an enjoyable way to spend a few minutes. But that's just it--it's only a couple of minutes, and you spend quite a lot for those minutes. If you can put the price behind you, however, it will be a memorable experience. The staff are great, and they do all they can to make sure you are safe and that you have a good time. Neither size nor age seems to be a barrier (up to a certain point, I assume). My son, who has actually thrown himself out of an airplane before, said that coming down after being thrown to the top of the tube did feel a lot like the real thing. So if you have the money, the time, and the inclination, give it a try. We loved it. (Two can go for the price of one if you have a coupon from the Entertainer book.)

“Fly baby, fly!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

They make it look so.... simple! Though its not as simple when you do it ;-) But its good fun & doesn't take ages. Its quick, one can do it even if you are short on time. And the experience is unique!
It was the first time for me & my kids aged 9 & 5 yrs; my hubby had already done skydiving at Switzerland, so this was no big deal for him. But we 3 were pretty anxious.
We were made to sign a form (that we were doing this at our own responsibility!) & then a small instruction lesson was provided showing us the signage to use & the body posture to keep while flying. We were given the gear to wear like full body suit, helmets, earplugs. Shoes are also provided it your footwear is not correct for the sport.
And there you go in the flying tunnel! One by one the instructor takes you in..... There is a grill on which you stand & a HUGE blower below it. It throws air at you at great speed which makes you fly. You cannot talk in there. You need to maintain eye contact with the instructor & give him/her signs if you get uncomfortable.
The first round is just to acclimatise you. In the second round, the instructor takes you UP with him, some odd 30ft high in the glass tunnel! Whoa! Its great fun & needs guts.
One should definitely try this when at Dubai! Superb experience! Simply unforgettable!

“It is really great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

The kids loved it even my 6 years girl enjoyed it so much
The people there are very professional and very friendly
You have to try it as it really worth every penny

Ps if your whole family tried this and you want the photos and the video just ask them for the 200 AED package it includes all of these for the whole family
