Make like Peter Pan by soaring on the wind. Thanks to this unbelievable experience, jump into a wind tunnel and surf on a 120 mph wall of air. The sensation of freefall is created without a single plane in sight. Start off with the all-important safety briefing from an instructor, then get kitted out with a rather fetching specialist flight suit. Step into the wind tunnel along with the instructor and be lifted into the air for two unforgettable 60-second sessions of body flying. That's more freefall time than skydiving from a plane would allow. For a few lucky participants, the instructor jumps on the airflow and shows off some gravity-defying acrobatics. End the session with a debrief and leave the venue with a brand new story to tell.
