There must be one in Denver too -- my sister was telling me just today about it. She took my niece there for her 11th birthday, together with a friend. So cool!

I've wanted to try that for some time now... It seems like it'd be fun... and maybe awkward? But mostly fun!

Erik and I just saw one of these a few nights ago at Universal Citywalk here in LA. Two girls were spinning around inside it, having the time of their lives.

With its glass sides and big fan at the bottom, it looked a little bit like a giant blender. So, I guess try not to think about that when you step into it.

There was a video making the rounds a while back of some VC breaking his shoulder while doing that. I think he was doing it in Vegas, IIRC.

Naah, that was different. That was a guy jumping down with a parachute or similar through a hotel's atrium.

What I'm talking about is a vertical wind tunnel, and no parachute.

err, posted to the wrong place before.

Not from a chute, just in a wind tunnel.

Actually, the OP was right. (Not that I see that as a reason to avoid doing this!) Have fun!!

indoor skydiving!

that's like virtual sex!

half the pleasure + none of the danger = none of the pleasure?
