Learn to Fly – King of Prussia

by TheSpot

Doesn’t it seem we get inundated with gym commercials right around the holidays or beginning of summer?  You could be watching your favorite series and Chuck Norris and Christie Brinkley pop up with the latest exercise equipment to get you fit and in shape.  When it comes to fitness, we have so many options to choose from.  How many of us think fitness involves a gym and monthly fee?

The Philadelphia region has some well known events for adventure seekers that challenge our physical limits.  The ones that come to mind are the Broad Street Run, the Penn Relays, the Dad Vail Regatta, etc.  Who can forget the Naked Bike Race?  We are home to  all types of thrillists.  Another type of adventure can be found in King of Prussia, PA.   iFly Indoor Ski Diving can give you the thrill of skydiving in a safe enclosed environment.  

There are many reasons why this makes it the perfect destination for kids and young adults.  Some of the benefits include developing confidence, leadership skills, and team work.  One of the coolest features is their Flight School Summer Academy.  During the summer months, kids ages 4-16 have the benefit of learning to fly in a wind tunnel with a certified instructor. 

We went to visit iFly to experience first hand all that they have to offer.  We found families waiting in the wind tunnel in a queue for their turn to fly.  We observed the instructors giving tutorials before flight.  The wind tunnel is a tube shaped structure which compressed air is released and propels the patron upwards.  During our visit, the guides were there every step of the way, gently guiding the patron from the floor to high in the air.  There are some regulations regarding weight.  Training is also required before taking the actual flight.  We recommend visiting the iFly website for FAQ.

Overall, if you are an adventure seeker, wish to test the waters, or simply cross a challenge off of your list, iFly Indoor Sky Diving in King of Prussia is a great choice to flex your muscles and step out of your comfort zone.  This makes our list as an exhilarating experience at the same time preparing you for life’s next big challenge.
