For all of you who have diverse interests, and who like to try new things – there’s this new wave of curiosity. And from the looks of it – it’s like a paradox in mid-air. It’s called Indoor Skydiving! Recreation in a pure form – done for its own sake – an autotelic experience! People of all ages, and from all around the world, are getting into indoor skydiving like it’s the new best thing! And it is! Can you believe – they even have competitions! Guess who the winners are – right – kids. Like, this is an extremely popular deal with kids. What do you need? Ok, some air. In a tunnel, that goes upward. And probably a big fan. Like, a blowing air fan…

I do not mean to seem flippant – this really is a revolutionary new recreation activity. Some might even call it a sport – the art of human flight in vertical wind tunnels. Apparently its this unique combination of aerobatics, and dance, Or, if you always wanted to just fly – here’s your chance….

Most of the places where you can do this are located in areas popular for shopping and such – but the wind tunnel centers themselves could keep you and your family busy all day!  So hey, hey – have a go!!!
