Ever since my daughter Lisa and her husband Dan got back from their honeymoon to Florida. They have been going on about how much they had enjoyed their go at indoor Sky Diving. So with me turning 50 it they sprung it on me as a surprise, Along with a snowboard lesson which i will go in to in another post. We were also supposed to meet up with relatives that we had not seen for a long time. Circumstances meant that we had to put that one on hold for a while.
So it was off to Milton Keynes for the weekend. Coming along for the weekend was Mum,Lisa,Lee,Dan and Emma. So it was a real family outing. Lisa decided not to do the indoor Sky Diving and Mum never intended to get inside and was more than happy taking photos. So this left Dan,Emma,Lee and myself to learn how to fly. Well hover in a large tube.
After a safety briefing it was time to get suited up and get ready to Rock and Roll. by the time we were ready to go in there was plenty of nervous energy flying about. A bit of a pun there ok not really very funny. Once inside the hardest thing seemed to be getting in to the initial position where you are able to just hover without flying off in all directions. After a few seconds though you find yourself starting to relax. Once this happens everything suddenly seems a lot easier. By the end of our second go we were all managing tohold a good position. raise ourself up and down and also attempt some dodgy looking turns. At the end of the session everyone gets the option for an extra £5 you can go right to the top and back down a couple of times. With the help of the instructor of course. Left to our own devices this manouvre would of been a certain crash and burn. The extra £5 is definatly money well spent. As there is a good chance you will only go indoor Sky Diving once. So you have to make the most of it why you are there.
Overall Indoor Sky Diving is one of those things you have to do at least once. We all had a great time and i know all of us would recommend everyone to put it on their bucket list of things to do.
