“You will get two minutes of skydiving.”
Excuse me? Two minutes? That’s it? Was I hearing the guy at the counter correctly? Didn’t know that I am a sky king and I would require at least a half an hour of flight time?
“Trust me, two minutes is a long time for a beginner.”
With little room for debate, we forked over the cash and headed in for our skyventure.
So what is indoor skydiving? Basically, a huge turbine creates an updraft of winds moving at over one hundred thirty-five miles an hour. It’s supposed to simulate the sensation of free fall.
It’s kind of like blowing around inside of a blender. Believe it or not, you actually achieve flight. It’s an intense experience where I ended up feeling every single second. The guy at the counter was right. Two minutes was more that enough.
The answer, much like Mai, Tina, Marc, and I was blowing in the wind.
If you are ever presented the opportunity, do it. This was a blast. Indoor skydiving helped shake off the case of the creeps I picked up during my trip to The Holy Land Experience earlier in the day.
