Was a great experience. Didn't like that you had to be at establishment a hour before your flight time. A lot of wasted time spent, could be cut down to 15-30 minutes.

Took the Daughter and bought a group special for her friends. The girls ended up with 3 flights each which the broke down to 2 each at 90 seconds.

They used our group to make up time(the controller even yelled it to the guy sizing suits), but it wasn't noticeable to the girls as they were in the tunnel sitting area. I wouldn't have cared until the coach did his own 2 minutes to show off.

Would go back, but not as a $700 group... without special attention.

I preordered a package deal as a gift in Feb for a flight in June. The package at the time was for four flights and a DVD. When we arrived to take the flight, we were told that the package did not come with a DVD and we would need to pay $10 for a DVD. We mentioned that when we booked the flight it did and were told that they had no way of knowing that was the package at the time. We had to buy a DVD at that time as well if we expected to receive one. Although the flight and instructors meet the reviews I read on this site, the misrepresentation package deals impacted the whole experience. I contacted iFly through their website and they responded "I apologize that you were not given a DVD of your flight. The flight package changed, but our policy is to make DVDs for anyone who purchased before the change or expected a DVD. "
However we had already purchased a DVD (since the employees did not know the policy) so that the experience was not impacted in a negative way for those participating. Just be cautious of prebooking your flight if you use a package deal - you may not get what you paid for....

This is definitely an item to put include in your "Must Do" list. Very enjoyable experience best sharing with friends or family. Atmosphere is Austin relaxed but the instructors sure know what they're doing. You can fill out the waver on line to save time otherwise do be there 1 hr. in advance; wear sneakers and leave home any item that you may loose during your flight. Otherwise, iFly provides lockers and even shoes. Then add to your "Bucket List" to master the pirouettes that you are sure to witness!

Just finished the iFly experience in Austin, TX. I highly recommend it for anyone that is looking for a new adventure. The instructors and staff were fantastic. Everyone was professional and created a safe and fun environment.

I cannot say enough good things about them. If you have a chance to choose your instructor, we had Devon. He catered to the kids and adults alike.
