As part of Playnation - a dedicated leisure and entertainment destination at Mirdif City Centre - iFly Dubai uses innovative wind tunnel technology that allows participants to experience the thrill of free falling without jumping from a plane.

This exhilarating attraction uses a transparent acrylic tube powered by two gigantic 400 horsepower fans to allow participants to ride a current of air. And with winds in the tunnel reaching up to 200 kph, extreme sport enthusiasts will not be disappointed.

Offering the thrill of a lifetime, iFly Dubai can be enjoyed by all the family and children as young as five, as the controlled and instructor-supervised environment, along with the use of jumpsuit, goggles and helmet ensures that the highest safety standards are met. Requiring no prior training, this fun attraction offers the opportunity to enjoy one of the greatest experiences on earth with the option to document the event, through a film or photograph of your flight.

Using a vertical wind tower and floating on a cushion of air, more experienced participants can learn to perform aerobatic manoeuvres and even fly in groups.  Beginners who might be apprehensive about planes and parachutes or who have a fear of heights will find that iFly Dubai is the perfect place to experience human flight, without the risk. iFly Dubai users are safely within a few feet of the floor, and undertake expert instruction for the entire session.

This productive and cost-effective indoor skydiving facility is safe for kids, challenging for adults, exciting for teens and realistic for skydivers and will leave all who take part with unforgettable memories.
