Ready to channel your inner Peter Pan? At indoor skydiving you can fly, you can fly, YOU CAN FLY! Head about an hour and a half south of the Triangle, and you'll find America's largest vertical wind tunnel, primed for some epic indoor skydiving action. With wind speeds up to 190 MPH, you’ll feel just like free falling. Instructors guide you through the experience, and will even escort you to the tippy top of the tunnel, 50+ ft high off the ground. An experience like no other, this gravity-defying trip is 100% safe and almost anyone can do it so it’s the perfect activity for the burgeoning daredevil.
Before you get started, you’ll fill out some paperwork and complete a quick classroom training, where you’ll learn how to communicate in the tunnel (hand signals) and hold your position in the air. Next, it’s time to get suited up—the jumpsuit, earplugs, goggles and helmet make for a supreme #OOTD. Once decked out in your tres chic jumpsuit, instructors take you into the tunnel one at a time. The pros are there to hold your hand, keep you on track and bring you up and down the 53-foot tunnel.
And be sure to stick around before or after your flight to catch the pros showing off their skills. Their perfect tricks and flips make it all look utterly effortless but be warned: staying in control requires strength, flexibility and stamina—you may very well be sore the next day (but it’ll be so worth it).
From Paraclete XP:
"In a word, indoor skydiving is flying! If you've ever dreamed of experiencing the freedom that skydivers have had for decades, then indoor skydiving is absolutely for you!
Technology has finally advanced enough to where you no longer have to march towards the big door of an airplane and step out into the atmosphere to earn your flying stripes. No planes and no parachutes, here!
Indoor skydiving involves a vertical chamber (imagine a massive silo with windows) that has the most powerful fans you've ever seen, blowing lots of air into the tunnel from below. All you have to do is lean into the airflow and take flight! If you're interested in the SkyVenture technology behind this engineering marvel, read more about how our wind tunnel works.
If you're ready to give indoor skydiving a try, there's no better place to experience the thrill of flight than Paraclete XP. With one of the largest wind tunnels in the world, we've been providing world-class indoor skydiving in Fayetteville, NC since 2008."—Paraclete XP
