Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Flyaway is a vertical wind tunnel where you can test your skills in the sport of bodyflight. After a quick class, one of our instructors will help you leave the ground and learn how to fly! This may be your once in a lifetime "bucket list" experience or you can purchase packages of flight time and learn to fly like a pro. Flyaway can accomodate all ages and experience levels.

My daughter, son and husband participated in this activity. We were able to watch them through windows around the tunnel. After looking around online I discovered that indoor skydiving is popular but not accessible to many areas. The price was pretty low when compared to other facilities across the country. We did the fifteen minute fly-time package for a group of four. They give a class, outfit you in a flying squirrel jumpsuit, plug your ears and goggle your eyes. Then it is go time! The instructor divided the fifteen minutes among our four participants, allowing time for each person to get comfortable, get some air, and then get tossed out of the way into the cushions on the side. Everyone had fun. It is quite loud in the tunnel but my son, who is a high functioning autistic child, managed to deal with it even after one of his ear plugs fell out. Unfortunately, there was a mishap with his goggles that fit over his glasses. They were blown off of his face, mid-flight. The attendants were all shocked, as this had never happened to them before, but there were no injuries so lesson learned. If you don't absolutely need glasses, leave them off. If you do, check your goggle strap thoroughly for soundness and bring an extra pair of glasses, just in case. There are weight limits to flying for obvious reasons so check their website or call them ahead of time to make reservations and inquire about it. Wear tennis shoes and don't forget to empty your pockets! The staff were also very friendly and helpful. We even purchased the DVD recording of the flight time, which is also real cool! Sadly, my son's goggles were found but the glasses were never seen again.

It was a very cool experience for my nine year old son. This was one activity we only had him do. It takes an hour to go through the process and you only get two minute and 20 second "flights". He did some cool tricks with my son and they tandem flew the second go round. I'm guessing the more you are there, the more freedom to "fly" they give you. Regardless, the staff did a great job in regards to safety and with my son's experience. He enjoyed it immensely and I wouldn't mind doing it next time. It's $30 for a session and a great way to get exposed to the feeling of sky diving before you actually do it for real.

Interesting. However very very hot and the time for the money is a rip. The employees were very nice and friendly.

Very pricy, but my grandkids thought it was the best thing ever. You get a discount if you return in 90 days and they would have gone every day if I let them. The second time around they got to do more advanced maneuvers, which they thought was awesome. this will be one of the highligts of their vacation!. The two instructors we had, Nick & Michael were excellent.

We dealt with people that loved what they were doing and in return it put smiles on our faces. Our children rated this activity as number one out of everything we have done while in Pigeon Forge. They will remember it for the longest time! Tip: expect to get very hot
