Dubai gets first ME indoor skydiving centre
Dubai, April 28, 2010
Majid Al Futtaim Leisure has opened the region’s first public indoor skydiving centre, iFly Dubai, at the Mirdif City Centre, as part of the company's Playnation endeavour.
iFly instructors will demonstrate their skills at the centre. Experienced flight artists will dance on air in wind tunnels powered by massive 400 horsepower fans – performing tricks and flips that will make your head spin, said a spokesperson.
In vertical wind towers made with state-of-the-art technology, participants can float lightly on a cushion of air or perform aerobatic twists and turns in winds reaching up to 200kph, making iFly Dubai the perfect destination for first-time flyers and extreme sports enthusiasts alike, he said.
iFly Dubai can be enjoyed by all the family and children as young as five with no need for prior training in a highly controlled and instructor-supervised environment. High-tech equipment in the form of made-to-fit jumpsuits, goggles and helmets as well as specifically designed footwear will be on offer at the centre.-TradeArabia News Service
