iFly! We Fly!
My department at work were given gift certificates for a session of indoor skydiving via iFly Hollywood at Universal City Walk! It is basically a skydive stimulation without the risk of jumping off an airplane and having a parachute mishap…
It’s kind of an experience to have– it wasn’t an easy thing to get used to for me! In fact, even after going twice inside the man-made wind tunnel, I can’t say I’ll be doing somersaults any time soon while “floating” in air. The blast of air inside the tunnel is pretty nuts and trying to control your body while afloat is even more nuts!
Our more athletic co-worker had the best form in the end, while the slobs like myself had a harder time. It was definitely all about body formation, and the smallest thing can change the way you are floating around. I hit that glass wall a few times, I will admit! In otherwise, I totally sucked at it.
But hey, it’s kind of neat, kind of a nerdy thing to finally experience what it’s like to fly– or in my case, get thrown around by really strong wind… ha! At least they know how to capture your better moments on film!
