It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's abc13 sports anchor, Bob Slovak (KTRK)

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's you! Suspended in mid-air, iFly gives everyone the amazing opportunity to fly through the air. With its vertical wind tunnel, anyone can experience sky-diving without ever having to jump out of a plane.

The experience begins in the classroom. Here, your team's instructor will review all the necessary instructions to have a safe but fun flight. Then, your team will gear up for the experience of a lifetime! With your helmet, safety goggles, ear plugs, and flight suit - you and your team are ready to take-off!

In order to take off, iFly's wind tunnel uses four fans at the top of the building to create an air current. The air is pulled from the basement of the building, cooling it off, where it then races up to meet the flyer. With a secure net above and beneath you, you'll be airborne as soon as you enter the tube.

Depending on your experience level, you can soar with winds over 130mph! In any case, the sensation of free falling is identical to actual skydiving. You'll feel the wind racing past you while you hover in mid-air. It's an experience you and your family will never forget!
