I believe I can fly….
I believe I can fly. Really. And no, I’m haven’t started to lose my mind.
I just discovered Airkix in Milton Keynes. And it’s amazing.
Imagine the feeling of jumping out of a plane and plummeting towards the earth, swerving in the wind, arms and legs flying everywhere with nothing but a parachute to keep you safe. Well, Airkix is exactly like that, but without the scary bit of, well, actually having to jump out of a plane.
Instead, you fly around in a vertical wind tunnel…and it’s harder to master than it looks! First, you need to lean forward and master the neutral flying position, then an instructor helps you learn the fun tricks – from simple stuff such as moving up and down or left and right, to the more fancy stuff if you’re up to it. So much fun!
The instructors are all really friendly and helpful and guide you through everything you need to know in advance, so you don’t need to worry about a thing. Also, just about anyone of any age, fitness level or height can join in, so it makes an amazing day out for the family and is something completely different to anything you’re likely to have done before. They even have “pro-flights” for seasoned parachute jumpers so even if you’re used to hurling yourself out of moving aircraft, you can still join in the fun.
I love experiences like this and think it would make a lot of people very happy to find a gift voucher in their stocking this Christmas…and I’ve heard word that GROUPON will be offering an amazing deal TODAY ONLY so you can get an absolute bargain! Plus you get photos to take away with you, so a great momento of the day.
We loves it!
