Ready to check skydiving off your bucket list, but not so keen on the idea of jumping out of a plane that’s thousands of feet off the ground? We’re with you there. Skip the plane and make your way to iFLY in Frisco, Texas, an indoor skydiving experience that’s super fun, super safe and super cool! There’s no parachute, no jumping…and nothing keeping you firmly planted on planet Earth, either. We’re kind of obsessed with the concept, since there’s no experience (or athletic prowess) required. It’s just you—flying.
How exactly does it work, you ask? Once you’re at iFly, you’ll zip into a snazzy flight suit and put on goggles and a helmet and get into a giant vertical wind tunnel that simulates true freefall conditions. This modern take on skydiving is available to most people in decent health between the ages of 3 – 103, so gather up the family for a fun weekend getaway!
While you’re making your dream of flying a reality, get the most out of your trip to Frisco by enjoying summer weekend rates at one of only two resorts in the DFW Metroplex, Westin Stonebriar Resort and Spa. This resort is the perfect place to play, eat, drink, and revitalize — the Texas way. If time allows, don’t forget to check out a Frisco Roughriders baseball game, shop more than 9 million sq. ft of retail, and see some of the city’s outdoor art that will knock your socks off.
