As my mother used to say, “Why would anyone want to jump out of a perfectly good plane?” If you’re not ready to jump out of a perfectly good plane but want the exhilarating feel of a free fall from 10,000 feet, you can experience the sensation of a 170 mph free fall in the new wind tunnel being built right here in Scottsdale.
With an anticipated grand opening of early 2015, you’ll soon be able to check skydiving off your bucket list and be guaranteed to still be around to finish that list.
The FliteShop is bringing the next best “safest” extreme venue — a skydiving simulator—to Arizona. The wind tunnel will be located at Talking Stick, an entertainment destination just minutes away from North Scottsdale and Old Town Scottsdale, and is the first of its kind in the country.
When completed, the complex will be a 8,500 sq. ft. facility complete with video and photo-metric technology, restaurant, bar, corporate and private rooms, a gift shop and pro shop, topped off with unobstructed views of the McDowell Mountains
The only garb you will need is a jumpsuit, goggles and helmet, all provided for you, before you step into the climate controlled vertical wind tunnel for a simulated sky dive sensation that will set your heart pounding.
So tell your friends and get ready to enjoy an experience of a lifetime. Life comes at you fast!
