A vertical wind tunnel lets you float on a cushion of air, without having to wear a parachute or jump out of a plane. The adrenaline rush and the feeling of being suspended in mid-air are very real. After a brief training session, you’ll suit up and take your turn experiencing a free fall in the wind tunnel.
