Owner description: Vegas Indoor Skydiving, formerly known as Flyaway, operates America’s first indoor skydiving facility built in 1982. At Vegas Indoor Skydiving guests will earn their wings and experience bodyflight during a simulated skydive experience in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. The experience is similar to skydiving with the addition of a mesh trampoline floor and foam padded walls. Guests are able to simulate the freefall aspect of skydiving without the use of an airplane or parachute. Our mission is to provide a safe and memorable indoor skydiving experience to the general public, understanding that everyone will learn and grow at different rates, adapting to the ability of the flyer, and to encourage their development by sharing our love and knowledge of flight. We use a vertical wind tunnel to introduce guests to the sport of indoor skydiving. The tunnel produces enough wind to support the weight of an average adult. At Vegas Indoor Skydiving, each flyer will attend a brief training class, suit up in all the necessary flight gear, then jump in the tunnel and fly. The entire experience will take about an hour. The wind tunnel itself is about 22 feet high from the trampoline floor to the top net. The whole tunnel is 12 feet across. The fan is a DC3 propeller that is powered by a 1200 hp electric motor.

“dont get over excited”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Not the best and nothing like the wind tunnel in Florida, I would say this place is simply for someone to experienc eskydiving who has never done it before. This is not the place to train as a team or on your own. The states have many DZ's and many wind tunnels, do your research before you go or you will be dissapointed.

I'm sorry to hear your experience was not what you expected, our facility was the first of it's kind to open in the United States in 1982, therefore as you say our technology is not as advanced as some other facilities. If you are looking for some intense, highly advanced skydive training we are the first to admit there might be better facilities, however first time participants will not be able to tell much difference between the flying experience at our facility versus a newer one. There is still a lot that skydivers of many different experience levels can learn at our facility, just don't expect to do serious VFS training here. Putting a race car from 1982 against one from 2012 would have obvious results, however you can still have a ton of fun and learn a lot in that 30 year old car.

“Great Staff, Good Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The people who run this attraction take good care of their customers. They explain the experience to ease any nervousness, and they promptly took care of us, from check-in through the entire experience. Flying in the wind tunnel gave us a new appreciation for skydiving. We had a TravelZoo deal to do this that made it very affordable, including the video and still photos. A good value that way.
