SAN DIEGO — The first indoor skydiving simulator in San Diego has opened in Mission Valley.

iFLY San Diego opened to the public Monday morning, after giving FOX 5’s Abbey Gibb a preview of the amazing thrill ride. The giant vertical wind tunnel is visible from Interstate 8. It is located at 2385 Camino Del Rio North, opposite the Fashion Valley Mall.

A flying session costs $79.99, which includes all the gear you need, a personal flight instructor and two 1-minute flying sessions. First, you suit up in a flight suit, helmet and goggles. Then you and your instructor enter the wind tunnel chamber. The instructor guides you into flight position and teaches you how to maneuver up and down by varying your surface area. By the second session, most people are soaring.

Anyone from 3 to 103 years old weighing a maximum of 250 lbs. can experience the feeling of freefall at iFly San Diego. It is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m . on weekends.
