Hi, just wanted to know on average how long does the experience last? Thanks Bob.
Bob Smith, BOSTON - 1st December 2011
Firebox says: Hi Bob, you get 2 flights of approximately 1 minutes each, and the whole experience, including safety training and getting kitted up with equipment can last upto an hour. I hope this helps!
I was wanting to know if you could do it as a couple and take the flight at the same time together? its for my boyfriend and I kinda wanted to do something together?
Jennifer, Carlisle - 30th October 2011
Firebox says: Hi Jennifer, Only two people (the instructor + instrucee) are allowed in the chamber at a time! Sorry!
Not a review a question, is the price per person? I'm wanting to buy as a present for a couple, any help? thanks.
Jessica, Preston - 6th May 2011
Firebox says: The price is per person, so you will need to buy 2 vouchers for 2 people.
Went to the Airkix in Manchester a couple of days ago. It was truly amazing!!! I've never actual been skydiving so I'll admit I can't compare, but still something I'd reccommend to anyone!!!
Gemma, Southport - 22nd April 2010
Been to the Milton Keynes Skydive Centre today with 2 other friends and can honestly said a great time was had by all. Brilliant fun and a must have experience for all. Problem is we all just want to go again now!!! :)
Rich Green, Leicestershire - 18th March 2010
I have never been on this experience either but I think it looks very, very, very, very good. You will probably like it if you like it when your feet don't touch the ground and you can fly just like a bird.
