This post is lacking some important details...like how to make it work, restrictions, etc. Basically you link to a code. I tried this at my local (PA) Ifly and the flights came up normally $69.99 for a weekday and the promo code wouldn't work "because of restrictions."

Thanks. Good deal if you can fit it into your schedule next week. Sadly, I can't.

So much less expensive than usual, but even paying $15 a minute seems ridiculous.

I just booked in KOP for $31 including tax. The code populated automatically. Repped.

You get 2, 1 minute blocks of flight time. They say the experience lasts about an hour and forty five minutes, but yes, the actual flight time is 2 minutes. It's insanely expensive.

you wouldnt know it but one minute is pretty long.

real freefall you would only be falling about a minute. every 5 seconds is 1000 feet. you typically jump at 14000 and pull the chute at 6000. 8000 feet is about 40 seconds. tack on the hill when you exit, you hit terminal velocity in about 10 seconds. total time almost a minute.

After I had >100 jumps I'd set my Pro Track to go off at 4000 then 2500 feet. I'd pull on the second alert. They say the "floor" to pull is 2000 feet, but the hot doggers would pull lower than that. My first parachute took 400 feet to inflate, my second one took 250. I'd be able to tell by 2000 feet if something was wrong, giving me plenty of time to cut away and pull my reserve. Never had a reserve ride though.


I'd buy jumps in bulk for $18 each (15 years ago). Indoor skydiving was about $30 a minute at that time, so this deal is good, even though it seems expensive at first glance. No drive to a remote DZ, no special equipment, no plane ride, no parachute packing (or paying someone else to do it), no risk of death, etc. It's a good way to get skydiving instruction. Paying an instructor to jump with you is wayyyy more expensive.

I assume terminal velocity would be hit in about 5-6 seconds...
54 mps tv. -9.8mps

But yeah, point taken. But still. Not falling in a tube... so seems rrally short.

Great deal! But easy to save as much as 33% more: Costco by me sells 3 $50 iFly gift cards for $100. I booked 3 flights for $96.99, used two gift cards (you can use up to 4 per transaction) and will sell or use the remaining $50 card day of flight (photos are $3.95, high flight option is $9.95, etc.).

Do we need to finish both flights on the same day?
