Air acrobatics

Experience the weightlessness of skydiving – without having to jump out of a plane!

Overview

Indoor parachuting involves the use of vertical wind tunnels, that let girls experience the sensation of flight and skydiving without planes or parachutes. This is a particularly good activity for thrill seekers who are still a little wary of heights – and is offered by a number of centres across the UK. 

We recommend that only girls aged seven and over participate in this activity - but each provider will have their own weight and age requirements.
