Is not too bad if you live near Milton Keynes... quidco noted that use of discount code might invalid the cashback... but £20 each you can't ask for too much I guess? Just booked mine!!! :P

can a fat b.... go in this?
#11
Whilst i think this is good value i am not sure if it is a real 2 for 1 deal. i looked into doing this for my family last year...4 of us and i do not think it was going to cost £198 for 4. We do havetwo children and maybe they were going to be cheaper.

Can anyone else shed light on this!
#12
I don't know the answer but at least you can lie on the floor and get a good jet blasting! lol!

2 MINUTES!

Is that all you get?

That's a lot of money for 2 minutes of actual entertainment. And a long way to go for most people.

Can someone confirm if that's right? Would be tempted if it isn't actually just 2 minutes.

Can you imagine how much time it would feel like.... more like 30 secs!!


***** Errrr... never mind.. just saw on the site that it is correct and you get 2 x 1 minutes flights!

Too expensive for me!

Yep Xscape really know how to penny pinch, should check out the prices for snowboarding there ;-)

Am I right in saying that for £41.15 you get 2 minutes each in the tunnel?
#19

Yes thats correct two one minute flights each, in the info it says:
two one minute ‘flights’


It does not sound long and I have not tried it, but you normally find a minute on these kind of things feels like ages.

You can see how long they get in the video I posted (should have timed it).
#21
yeah it does feel longer than a minute... an actual sky dive, the freefall time is only about 1 or so mins, and thats a LOT more money!!
#22
Dont forget you are getting a DVD also!
#23
An actual skydive from 13,000 feet is about 50 seconds (not including canopy time). Tandems cost £75-200 depending on where you go and who you know :)

Real skydives may cost a lot more £££ but they do offer a much higher adrenaline rush!!

I actualy did this last week,Although i paid for a 10 minute family flight with my tesco cc points.
Worth every penny,and 1 minute at a time was enough for me,when i came out of the tunnel i felt physicaly drained! My youngest son (11) was excellent at it,put me to shame.

This looks so fun!!

Only 4 people in the UK have died from skydiving in the past 3 years and most of those deaths were either suicides or could have been prevented by the skydiver themself. Those are pretty good odds if you ask me, you're more likely to die crossing the road.
#28
Hot from me...

I did a skydive when I was in Australia - 12,000 feet. One of the best things I've done in my life. I'd definitely recommend the real thing, but this has got to be a good alternative to get a similar feeling....

Hi all,
I have done both free fall skydiving and wind tunnel "Floating".
The Real thing is the business, Such a HIGH, what a buzz and worth every single penny of your hard urned.
The wind tunnel is OK, but no BUZZ of plumiting to the ground.
Weight is no restriction as they just turn the fan up higher, You would have more resistance to the wind so "should float better"
I did it in the USA, and you got three goes of about 30-40 seconds each. so it is VERY expensive, even in the usa it worked out at about £20 and i thought this was too expensive.
My advice is save up and do the real thing, FEEL THE BLOOD PUMPING THROUGH YOUR VEINS. MEGGA BUZZ.
#32
so tempted

Well the stats for skydiving fatalities only go far back as 2005 so I can't comment on numbers. However, I can tell you that the way parachutes are designed nowadays are a LOT more safer than they were 20 years ago.

A parachute will only malfunction aproximately once every 1000 jumps (and even then it could have been prevented by the skydiver / packer). Then you got the reserve parachute which is a much safer parachute, packed more carefully by a professional certified rigger. There is only a 0.004% chance of both parachutes failing.
