We purchased a value package for our 10 year old son and an extra high fly experience for another $15 ( i think it was $15). The value package gave him two 1:40m flight times, the high fly experience time was done in his second 1:40m time block.
(for those of you with Entertainment book this package is offered with a discount deal)

You must arrive an hour in advance but there is usually always someone in the tube so you can enjoy watching it rather than sitting around . A safety video is show, they are geared up with a flight suit, eye and ear protection and given a helmet. They review the signals and then enter the tunnel system.

The flying itself will be dependent on your ability to hold yourself flat and straight. Our 10 year old son understood it quickly and was strong enough to hold his position in the wind and was floating around easily by his second turn but some kids struggled with it as the wind force was too much to overcome and they were bent by it.

High Fly they raise the fan up and the instructor takes you up to the ceiling, in our case, our son was taken to top two times in his high fly experience.

I was extremely jealous and wished I had gone in myself. Ah well next time!

My 9 year old daughter requested that we do this and asked that I go with her. It wasn't something I had considered before, so I had no thoughts about it going in. It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend it. The team were professional and helpful. My daughter and I paid for the double time experience which I suggest purchasing for getting the most out of your experience. Theres a short training session beforehand and the instructor stays with you the whole time. Our group had a child of 4 years through to adults 50-60 years. You get the option while in there to go up the top with the instructor for $15, my daughter chose not to, but I did and it was so much fun! Videos and photos are available to purchase after, but we recorded our own from the sidelines.

Wow! I booked a birthday party for my son And I thought it was reasonably priced. It’s very fun to watch everyone go in there, and a good laugh watching the kids in there. There is plenty of room to sit. Parking can be a bit hard, but you just have to walk a small walk, we were lucky enough to get a park at the back door. The staff were lovely. The flights could be a little bit longer, but the kids enjoyed it so much.

This is me. A transgender woman (she/her) who battles Gender Dysphoria, Autism, ADHD, Tourette’s, Chronic anxiety, chronic depression and several other mental and physical limitations every day.

Today was my birthday and my partner booked me in for some flying in the tunnel as I plan to go skydiving properly within the next year.

My huge excited smile quickly turned into crying in the car, embarrassed and humiliated.

When I arrived I was called a man. I corrected the staff member and said I’m not a man, I’m a trans woman. My partner then also corrected him.

He called me a man again before telling me there was a weight limit after looking me up and down. He told me to step on scales in front of other staff and customers, read out my weight and said I couldn’t fly without an instructor. There were no instructors there. So was told I couldn’t fly at all.

Humiliating as this was, I was feeling defeated and just wanted to leave so said never mind. He then said “sorry man. I mean not man. Sorry man… Ah. Man. A total of 9 times I was called a man. 6 of those times occurring within literally 2 minutes.

I then said I wanted to speak to the manager, Chris. The manager came out and pretty much just said “the staff member apologised, there’s nothing else we can do” while shrugging his shoulders in a very careless manner. I said there is more that could be done after being spoken over and having Chris mansplain and cut me off for about a solid 5 minutes. To which he asked what could be done. I said that staff should undertake a course in sensitivity towards LGBTQ+ identifying customers. He had no interest in this and again told me there’s nothing else that can be done. Apparently saying “oh sorry” fixes everything.

So after being repeatedly misgendered and being disrespected by the manager, my partner being discriminated against for being deaf, and being told I’m pretty much too fat to fly, I left. Walked down the stairs I previously almost ran up with excitement and sat in my car in tears.

This is the worst experience I’ve had anywhere and the fact the manager couldn’t care less just made it so much worse. I will never be returning and I urge all LGBTQ+ identifying people to avoid this toxic place where discrimination is acceptable. Absolutely disgusting.

Great fun! Absolutely loved it. Experienced staff run through everything with you and you get a couple of goes. Pay a little extra and they’ll spin you up to the top and back down again.

Can’t recommend this enough!!

This was great fun and the whole family loved it. With these sort of places you need to go for the maximum experience but it also depends hugely on your instructor. Our instructor (Gold Coast Ifly) was Oliver and he was superb. He relaxed everyone, he was calm and was very professional ... he was a delight and if you manage to get Oliver then you will be in luck.

I booked Ifly for my two boys (17yrs and 11 years), and they could not wipe the smile off their faces afterwards they absolutely loved it. Gave them a bit of an idea of what it may be like to skydive. The staff were fantastic from the moment you walked in and my two boys felt completely safe throughout the whole experience. You had to arrive an hour before your session to fitted with the suit and also be given full debrief of what to do. They even had the opportunity for the instructor to fly them up higher into the tunnel, highly recommend you do this we paid an extra $10.00 for this experience.

This was fantastic family fun. Not cheap, but still worth it I thought for a one off. Max weight restrictions are 135kgs.
