For those adventure junkies looking for an adrenaline rush, an indoor skydiving experience is now offered in Hyderabad. The indoor skydiving arena was set up by GravityZip and is said to be the first of its kind in the country.
Indoor skydiving is similar to outdoor skydiving where you jump off an airplane with a parachute. Here, however, you do not have to wear a parachute and it is also a lot safer than the outdoor variant of the sport.
In indoor skydiving, people enjoy the feeling of free fall and soaring in a wind tunnel. Powerful fans generate wind in the tunnel and help simulate free fall.
The skydiving facility, in Hyderabad, has a 3-meter-high tunnel and the operators maintain a wind speed of 200 km/h to 400 km/h in it. Visitors who want to experience the thrill are given a jumpsuit made of cotton, nylon, and spandex, along with shoes and a helmet for safety purposes.
To enhance the experience, the arena also has dynamic lighting, while there is also a basic door for advanced flyers.
A team of instructors from Europe will also be there to instruct the visitors as they go through the adventure. Skydiver Brenda O’Rafferty with 15 years of skydiving experience has also been brought in as a head coach at the facility.
People can book their flights through the GravityZip website which offers two packages for Rs 2,800 and Rs 3,300.
According to one of the founders of GravityZip, Sushil Reddy, indoor skydiving is both an adventure and an entertainment. He assured that the facility is completely safe and monitored by technicians. In addition, he said 17 Air Force personnel were also trained in the indoor skydiving tunnel, as reported by Deccan Chronicle.
