Las Vegas NV: Experience Indoor Skydiving PDF Print E-mail

Remember the song from “Peter Pan”:
Think of all the joy you'll find when you leave the world behind,
And bid your cares goodbye: You can fly, you can fly, you can fly!

For gutsy seniors visiting Sin City, this sinful thrill should be a priority on their bucket lists! Just as astronauts train for space walks, the vertical wind tunnel at Vegas Indoors Skydiving gives the feeling of floating in air. You actually can fly!

With padded suit, trampoline below and padded walls all around, this skydiving simulation is a very safe experience. Imagine sending photos and/or video to delighted family and friends of their favorite gravity-defying senior in free flight! Famed scientist Stephen Hawking volunteered for a similar experience, and said he felt physical freedom for the first time since polio paralyzed him as a college student. If that brave guy could do it, so should any healthy senior from age 55 to 105. First, be sure to check with your doctor for a healthy OK. 

Fees for the indoor flying experience begin at $75 for a single experience, with other programs available, including group rates. The facility is located at 200 Convention Center Dr., Las Vegas NV 89109. For more info, go to www.vegasindoorskydiving.com
