We took our four teenagers/early 20's kids to iFLY to celebrate us all being together for the holidays. The kids are still talking about how much fun it was! We had Devon for an instructor and he was amazing...I was a little nervous going into it but he explained everything in terms that we could understand and made it really easy and fun for everyone. "Chin up and stay still" :)

The whole experience was great. The coaches/trainers were very patient and explained the process very well.

Took my 2 kids -- 18yo daughter and 16yo son -- as a Christmas gift. We signed the waiver online, so there was no unexpected forms to sign when we got there. They are very organized and friendly. We arrived 45 minutes early, signed in via a kiosk, the girl at the counter put bands on the kids and we headed upstairs for training and the flight.

Our instructor, Waz, was fabulous. Great attitude and good with the kids. My daughter was pretty nervous and he patiently answered her questions and made her feel at ease. My son was a natural!

I love the "finale" each instructor does, where they fly alone and do amazing stunts. Our instructor actually ended his by landing right in the doorway! Very cool!

We would definitely do this again -- even though it is pricey. But for a couple of times a year, it is a fun and exciting adventure. I will say the video quality of the included DVD is pretty crappy. The video my husband took on his phone was better.

Overall -- great place. Adventure seekers will love it. The staff was friendly, helpful, patient and have a great sense of humor!

My "flight" was on December 10. All went smoothly and I enjoyed it. The folks at IFly are very friendly and do their best to make this a great experience. I got there early enough to watch others do it before my flight time and would recommend that. An instructor is with you the entire time for beginning flyers. Once you see how everyone is enjoying it, you become eager to do it yourself. It doesn't appear to be that "dangerous" but IFly makes you sign your life way with non-litigation documentation and more recently I have learned of someone who was injured doing this. I'm not sure how this compares with actual sky-diving since I have not done that. The flight time is short and a bit expensive. For the most part it was fun but not something I am eager to do again.
