In conjunction with Red Bull Stratos- Mission to the Edge of Space, where Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner was to make a historic jump 120,000 ft from the stratosphere in an attempt to break four world records, a few bloggers were invited to be a part of this once in a lifetime experience by having their own indoor skydiving experience at iFly Singapore in Sentosa. And when Charlene aka Missuschewy extended her invitation to me, I was most ecstatic to tag along as her plus one!
We arranged to meet at the Vivocity station and took the Sentosa train straight to Beach Station, where iFly was conveniently located just a few steps away. This multi-million dollar indoor skydiving facility is currently the largest in the world, standing at five meters wide and five storeys in height. Be awed as you walk past the state of the art wind tunnel which takes centerstage in this place. 18 feet tall of clear acrylic glass wall that offers you an unparalleled view to as far as the South China Sea in the day and even fireworks from the nearby Song of the Seas at night, yes! As you are skydiving in that tunnel.
When we arrived, we saw a couple of professional skydivers carrying out stunts in the wind tunnel- flips, twists, even flying upside down for some. And it all seemed so effortless and simply a piece of cake. That definitely got me even more psyched for my own experience!
