iFLY Indoor Skydiving centre is finally open in Calgary

Aug 9 2019, 3:45 pm

Calgary is officially home to an indoor skydiving centre.

iFLY Calgary opened its doors late last month, inviting Calgarians and visitors alike the chance to feel the thrill of freefall — without worrying about parachutes and planes and all that jazz.

The centre is home to a 12 ft recirculating SkyVenture wind tunnel that will provide a sense of falling to anyone who steps inside (when it’s turned on, of course).

A release from the company states that thrill-seekers will be able to find them at the Deerfoot City shopping centre, located at 811 64th Avenue NE.

First-time fliers (floaters? fallers?) can try out the experience starting at $60, which will get you two flights that are equivalent to three skydiving freefalls from 12,000 feet, according to iFLY’s website.

Call ahead to 403-365-4288 to reserve your time in the tunnel, or pop by during their hours of operation:

  • Monday to Thursday: Noon to 8 pm
  • Friday: Noon to 10 pm
  • Saturday: 10 am to 10 pm
  • Sunday: 10 am to 7 pm
