It Looks Like A High Flying Time At iFly Baltimore

Hey Cuties,

Since my birthday last week, I’ve been out here intentionally living my best life.  I’m only a few days into 38 years old but I’ve already checked an item off my bucket list. Yay, indoor skydiving did and I have receipts so I could show you. Insert “I Believe I Can Fly”, oh wait. Nevermind we officially quit R. Kelly; how about Three Six Mafia Stay Fly!

What is iFly: Indoor skydiving is the simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel.

Backstory: Five years ago we spent Thanksgiving in Raeford, NC two minutes from an Indoor Skydiving spot. This was the first time we’d ever seen something like this but immediately we wanted to try it out. It was closed for the holiday and we returned home having never tried it.  Years late we would find one in Virginia Beach, VA but that was still at least 3 hours away.  Last year two came to our area in Ashburn, VA, and Baltimore, MD. While we were excited we didn’t rush out to either of them.

Niece & Brother-In-Law

On Friday, my niece Kameryn turned 12 and wanted to celebrate at iFly Baltimore.  We were onboard anyone, it’s our niece but we were thrilled because we would finally go to iFly.  Our first thought was how much does it cost. Our second thought was are we going to pay for the kids too. *sigh* It isn’t cheap… but we decided we would all do it.

My Flight Crew – Suited up.

According to the website, you can be as young as age 3 to fly.  Babe showed LittleCuteLips a video the night before to see if you understood what she would potentially sign up for.  She was on board, she is such a trooper.

What have we done?

Because we look silly in our flight getup.

We ready…

We were suited up before, but now we have on our helmets, goggles, and earplugs. They provide all the gear you need, that is included in the price. You should wear lace-up sneakers and comfortable clothes with a collarless shirt. For me, that was jeans and a sweatshirt. You put the suit on over top of your clothes.

The Man-Child

I was worried about the following things:

Unsettled stomach: You can eat before you come, you won’t get any feeling of motion sickness, nausea, or dropping feeling in your stomach.  We ate in the facility up until they told us to get suited up.  I suffer from motion sickness and slight vertigo; I had no issues with either.

Breathing: I was worried it would take my breath away. It didn’t at all, there is no struggle to breathe. You can breathe normally out of your mouth or your nose.

High Flight: With the purchase of the high flight, guests are able to fly higher and faster with their instructor than they would fly on their own. The high flight occurs during the last 15-20 seconds of the guest’s final flight. High flights may not be available to guests that are over 260 lbs or to guest with certain restrictions.

All of us decided to go higher at the end of our second flight except LittleCuteLips. It cost us $10 more but it was worth it.

    When I saw this on Instagram I instantly became jealous and looked for the nearest iFly location to NYC. Thank you for the tips because I will do this…one day. Lol

  2. Elle (CleverlyChanging)

    My husband treated me to iFly in Baltimore for my birthday too. We all loved it. I would definitely go again.

  3. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    That looks like so much fun! I’ve always wanted to try indoor skydiving, but I’ve never had the chance. I’d love to go there.

  4. Danielle

    How fun! I’ve been indoor skydiving several times, and it’s so much fun! It’s also nice to know that if something goes wrong, I won’t plummet 10,000 feet to my death. I’ll have to make a point of going there.

  5. Sapphire Kharyzma

    I’ve always wanted to try skydiving. You guys made it look like so much fun! Baltimore looks lit 🙂

  6. Kita

    I took my son to do this for his birthday. All the kids had a blast. I was too scared to try but now I want to.

  7. Alicia Taylor

    I have always wanted to try this. I live in a small town though and don’t have anything like it near me. It just looks so exciting.

  8. Saidah Washington

    I need something fun like this in my area. We hardly have any fun date night stuff in the south.

  9. Leah

    This looks like so much fun!! I would love to try this!

  10. Sue Reddel

    We did iFly here in Chicago. So. Much. Fun. I was a little apprehensive but the way they walk you through everything makes it so much better. Plus all the little kids having so much fun makes it a great experience.

  11. Tonya

    My kids have all gone skydiving, but this is much more my speed. I would really enjoy indoor skydiving. Not so much to jumping out of an actually plane.

  12. Nancy Laws

    Yes! I would try skydiving…indoor and outdoor, both are on my bucket list…maybe for my 30th next year??? We shall see

  13. Claudia Krusch

    I have always wanted to try this. It would be amazing to do it as a family. I will have to look for a location near me.

  14. Lynsey

    I’ve always wanted to experience Ifly! It looks amazing and you really took off!

  15. Tomiko

    I’ve never been indoor skydiving but every time I take Madison to pigeon forge we pass a place right in town and Madison always ask can we go and I say No! Maybe I will take her next time!

  16. Melissa Dixon

    I have always been curious about this after seeing it on tv. I wish they had something like this nearby my home. I may have to make a trip out there!

  17. monica y

    I love skydiving, but since my son cannot actually jump from the plane with me until he is older, I am going to take him to do this. Looks like fun

  18. Kathy

    That looks like so much fun. I would love to try this out sometime. I’ve always wanted to do this.

  19. ashley

    how fun is this! this has been on my bucket list forever. I can’t sky dive anymore so this is a great alternative.

  20. Wendy Polisi

    I had no idea they had stuff like this. This is so cool and my kids would love it!

  21. Louise Bishop

    We’ve done this before and it was a blast. My son was the first to go up which talked my younger girl into it lol

  22. Carissa

    How Fun! See I would never skydive unless I had to but I think I could do this! And how fun that all of you all went! Even Little CuteLips!! I know my son would be up for it, but I’m not sure about Emma! And I already know Darrick would be game! This is a great event to experience together as family!

    • MimiCuteLips

      This you could totally do. No need to actually jump out of a plane. Emma might need some coaching, you get to watch others before you go. That was helpful to LittleCuteLips and i told the instructor she was worried. He made sure he was gentle and made her feel safe.

  23. Cyn Gagen

    This is a dream of mine!!! I’ve got this sitting on my bucket list and as soon as I can find a place near me, I’m in!! What fun.

  24. Nanekia Ansari

    We are officially bffs in my head. I want to do this so bad but I’m super nervous. Looks like you guys had fun. I’m working up to it.

  27. Lynndee

    How fun! I haven’t tried it yet, but I would love to one of these days. Bet my husband and son would love to try it too.

  28. Tiffany H.

    I want to try but I’m so scared, I’m scared to stay afloat in the pool. so I don’t think I could do this one. But it looks fun, maybe one day, I will face my fear.

  29. CeCe

    I would SO try this. I picked up a flyer when my older sister and her daughter and I checked out the AZ Women’s Expo, I think maybe I’ll try that on my birthday next year. Looks like you all had a blast.

  30. TC

    I would love to do do this, looks like you had so much fun. But looks scary and needs lot of courage to do. Thank you for sharing.
