      Experience the feeling of a parachute jump without ever getting on a plane at SkyVenture, where you gear up in a jumpsuit with helmet and goggles, and step into a wind tunnel with a skilled guide, who will instruct you how to soar up to about ten feet off the ground. And then once you get the hang of it, as it were, you get a second session, in which your guide will lift you up much higher and twirl you around so that you get a real sense of flight. It's all perfectly safe and quite addictive. And at the end of the session you'll get to see the guide show off his stuff so you can see what kind of superhuman feats are possible with a little training. Once your feet become accustomed to the ground again, you can head across the hall to a fabulous indoor wave pool, where you can learn to surf in half an hour even if you've never been on a surfboard in your life. The pool is capable of generating several different kinds of waves for a variety of water thrills. If you have the time for even more fun, there are also a climbing wall and a fishpipe, which rolls you around inside a large transparent ball partially filled with water.

      If you go:
      Children must be at least age 3 to fly, and at least 5 to surf. No one may fly who weighs over 250 pounds. Wear sneakers for flying and bring swimwear and towel for water activities. (Bikinis not advised.) No jewelry or loose articles may be taken into the flying chamber; free lockers are provided. Open every day and evening of the week. Reservations recommended. Food available on premises.
