This incredible destination is the perfect getaway for travellers, adrenaline junkies, and history buffs. Let’s not forget the Instagram-worthy picturesque views!

What do you want to do on your trip to this action-packed, resort town? Perhaps skydiving was always on the bucket list, but you’re not sold on the idea of falling through the sky, just yet.

Why not try indoor skydiving? Instead of falling from a plane, skydiving simulators provide you with the same thrill of skydiving, minus the time constraints (and of course, the freefall).

Experiencing indoor skydiving with iFly Queenstown (New Zealand's first and only indoor skydiving location) should be at the top of your itinerary.

Read on to learn more about iFly: Queenstown’s indoor flying experience (and why you need to try it).

What is iFLY?

No aeroplane, no parachute. Just the thrilling sensation of skydiving.

In 1998, iFLY pioneered the technology that turns over 400,000 people’s dreams of flying into a reality, every year.

A vertical wind tunnel simulates the smoothest airflow for safe, true freefall conditions. Standard skydiving is over within 45 to 60 seconds, however, each flight at iFly is the equivalent to 1.5 skydives from 12,000 feet.

Consider checking out the latest in VR advances with iFLY Virtual Reality. Wearing a state-of-the-art VR helmet and headset, experience actual footage of a real skydive from first-person POV. Float atop a rush of air over some of the world’s most breathtaking destinations. You’ll feel a rush of adrenaline as you freefall from an incredible 13,000 feet!

What To Expect

People of all ages, shapes, sizes, abilities and fitness can fly. Whether you’re a child, an adult first-timer, experienced diver or an adrenaline addict, you’ll be under the protective wing of our experienced and expert instructors.

Kids (5-11) and first-time flyers are assigned two instructors. One will remain with you in the tunnel to control airspeed and maintain comfort and safety levels. You’ll be part of a group with other first-timers, but your experience inside the tunnel is guaranteed to be one-on-one.

Arrive an hour before your flight to complete a pre-flight brief. Your instructor will demonstrate the basic flying position and some hand signals for you to use.
