Seems a good deal to me. Heres the info:

Imagine a wind tunnel that could be used for testing the aerodynamics of an F1 racing car, turn it upright, step into the airflow and you’re skydiving! It’s a proven concept operating in several countries to the benefit of the skydiving community and anyone else who wishes to taste the thrill of freefall in a completely safe environment. Now you can experience the joy of human flight by easing yourself onto a 120mph air stream.

What's included

* A fun briefing and instruction period, in which you’ll learn and practice freefall and body flying techniques
* Locker hire
* Gear hire
* Two flights of 1 minute each (that’s the same freefall time as 3 tandem skydives)
* DVD covering your flight
* Allow approx 1 hour for your experience
* Experience gift pack including smart wallet, personalised voucher and message card
* PA cover to a value of £50,000 plus cancellation indemnity

What happens on the day

You will each receive two flights of 1 minute each (that’s the same freefall time as 3 tandem skydives).
On arrival you’ll be required to sign a statement of risk confirming that you’re in a reasonable state of health and fitness (Participants under the age of 18 will require a parent’s or guardian’s signature). Then you’ll meet the instructors who’ll run through all the fundamental training required before you can fly – this session is good fun! Instructors will then help you to ‘kit-up’ in a flight suit, helmet and goggles - then it’s on to the wind tunnel where you’ll experience your flights. After your flights, you’ll be presented with a DVD of your flight as well as a flight certificate signed by the instructor.

Need to know

* Minimum age: 5 (under 18’s need parental consent)
* Maximum weight: 18 stone
* Participants should be in good general health. Participants will be unable to fly if they are pregnant, have previously suffered from a dislocated shoulder, are wearing a hard plaster cast or are under the influence of alcohol or non-prescribed drugs. If you have any concerns, it is best to check before booking
* Your voucher is valid for nine months from the date of issue, kindly note that you must have booked and taken your experience before your expiry date as vouchers may not be extended beyond their expiry

18th October 2010 to 3rd November 2010,
14th December 2010 to 5th January 2011,

allow 1 hour for your experience but 1 minute in the tunnel from what someone said recently

Looks interesting you get 10 mins of time for that, the OP's post is for 2 mins
Not everyone uses Tesco, there are a lot of Tesco haters out there so Clubcard is not an option for many. It was £98, now £49.....simples. Don't know why I bother.
allow 1 hour for your experience but 1 minute in the tunnel from what someone said recently

But 1 minute is equal to 3 sky dives apparently.
Took my son to a skydiving party at one of these places - 1 minute doesn't sound much but it works out at plenty. Great fun, unforgettable.
My daughter bought a 2 x 1 minute session for 2 people for £45 for Father's Day via My husband finally went to Milton Keynes last week and they really enjoyed it (_;)
That's one Christmas pressie for the g/f sorted. ;)
