First there was the iPad, iPhone, iGo—and now there’s iFLY, which is something completely different. Offered by Austin-based iFLY Holdings, the recreational indoor skydiving operation will provide adventurers from age three to 103 with a safe free-fall experience when it opens on May 30 in Rosemont and on July 1 in Naperville.
“iFLY will definitely be the hot spot of entertainment this summer,” says Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens. “Rosemont has earned a reputation as one of the Chicago area’s premier entertainment destinations and iFLY is the perfect addition to our entertainment offerings.”
“The new iFLY locations will be the perfect addition to the vast variety of entertainment that the Chicago area offers by bringing an entirely new experience for families and thrill seekers looking to fly without anything attached to their bodies,” explains iFLY CMO Stuart Wallock. “The response from future flyers has been flooding our email boxes. The thrill of indoor skydiving offers a unique experience that everyone in the family can enjoy.”
“We wish iFLY a lot of success,” adds Naperville Mayor George Pradel. “I am excited for people to fly and experience the thrills of iFLY and all of the other attractions that Naperville has to offer.”
Flight packages range from beginners-level to advanced options for experienced flyers. Group packages are also offered at 779-368-4359. The new facilities are located in Rosemont at MB Financial Park at 5520 Park Place Rosemont and in the Freedom Commons at 1752 Freedom Drive in Naperville. To learn more, visit www.iFLYworld.com.
