iFly Dubai Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Located in the Mirdif neighborhood of Dubai, iFly Dubai is a skydive center that lets you replicate the experience of a parachute drop in a controlled indoor environment. iFlyers—as they’re called—fly on air gusts created in an acrylic wind tunnel. You’ll get the sensation of a real skydive—without having to jump from a plane.
iFlyers take part in an introductory briefing with an instructor before donning a wind-suit and full-face helmet and entering a 32-foot (10-meter) wind tunnel in a small group. Then, with an instructor on-hand throughout, they rise up to 13 feet (4 meters) above-ground on air gusts to experience an exhilarating, gravity-defying “flight.” Depending on the instructor’s judgment, participants may also be invited to perform flips and turns.
Visitors can prebook for iFly sessions online to save time and hassle. Options include beginner’s packages that feature two 1-minute flights, upgraded packages that offer two 2-minute flights, or virtual reality experiences that let you fly over virtual Dubai locations. All include training and equipment. Repeat iFlyers, meanwhile, can experience two 1-minute flights specifically aimed at helping them develop their technique.
Things to Know Before You Go
- An iFly flight is a must for thrill-seekers and fun-lovers.
- Choose a basic session to see if a flight is right for you before committing to anything longer.
- Family and friends can watch and photograph your flight from outside the tunnel.
- Children aged three and above can fly, provided the supplied helmets fit.
- The whole experience takes 45 minutes, including pre-flight training.
How to Get There
iFly is situated in the City Center Mirdif Mall in eastern Dubai. Hop in a cab—most drivers will know where it is—or take the metro to the Rashidiya stop and catch a taxi from there—it’s a few minutes’ drive. Regular shuttle buses also run from the station to the mall.
When to Get There
Summer is ideal for enjoying iFly; it’s indoors, so you can escape Dubai’s worst heat and avoid the center’s busiest periods during the peak winter tourist season. iFly is open daily: 12pm-10pm Sunday-Wednesday, 12pm-11pm Thursday, and 10am-11pm Friday.
Tips for an iFly flight
Once you’ve booked for iFly, arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled flight to allow time for signing waivers. It’s best to wear a short or long top, plus long pants and trainers as you’ll need to put the supplied wind-suit over your clothes. Free lockers are available.
