Welcome to Virginia Beach

With 35 miles of sandy beaches, a 3-mile concrete oceanfront boardwalk and nearby outdoor activities, it's no surprise that Virginia Beach is a prime tourist destination. The city has worked hard to shed its reputation as a rowdy 'Redneck Riviera,' and hey, the beach is wider and cleaner now and there are fewer louts.

Virginia Beach Indoor Skydiving for First-Time Flyers

When you arrive at the Virginia Beach indoor skydiving location, get started by putting on your provided gear and going through a specialized training session from a flight instructor.Learn how to safely float in a 1,400-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air, commonly used by professional skydivers. You can experience the thrill of skydiving without having to hurl yourself from an airplane. Just about anyone can fly, and no experience is necessary.Once you're inside the enclosed space of the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel your adrenaline start pumping as you 'free fall' at wind speeds reaching 180 mph (290 kph). The stable wind flow keeps you from falling off the column of air, and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you.The first-time flyer experience takes about 75 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to 12 people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor in the wind tunnel twice for 60 seconds.
