“Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true free-fall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel. It’s where the dream of flight becomes a reality and every flyer has a chance to earn their 'Wings'. Flyers from 3 to 103 years can experience the thrill of indoor skydiving at iFLY. Basingstoke Leisure Park, Euskirchen Way, Basingstoke RG22 6PG”
