So have you ever wanted to go skydiving but are afraid of heights? Well that is me and the rest of my family. I mean I have always wanted to go skydiving but the thought of jumping out of the plane scared me to death. Now you can experience sky diving without the fear of falling out of a plane at Flyaway Indoor Skydiving in Pigeon Forge, TN. They are the first in America to have a vertical wind tunnel to experience skydiving for yourself by watching your body fly.
My family and I got the chance to experience Indoor Skydiving at Flyaway. When we arrived we were asked to watch a short video and meet with our instructor. He went over some guidelines while suiting us up. They really made sure that we were safe by providing head-gear and telling us what hand signals to use if we need help since you can’t hear in the wind tunnel.
The instructor took us all in the wind tunnel and one by one he held onto us while we floated thru the air. It was an experience like no other. He made sure our body was correct so we could get the best experience. What you do is lay down flat on a metal grate and the wind tunnel turns on. The suit you put on makes the air go thru it pushing up upwards. The instructor makes sure you do not go too high by holding onto you. I wanted to spin around so I hand motioned him to spin me and he did. We did it! We all faced our fear of skydiving. Well, sort of at least. 🙂
At the end we even got a video to treasure our memory forever. Below, I made a short clip from our video so be sure to check it out.
