iFLY Indoor Skydiving centre is finally open in Calgary
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
