Looking for a unique idea for your next birthday party? Indoor skydiving offers fun for all ages. Whether you are looking to have a birthday party for your children, or celebrate your 50th with friends and family, indoor skydiving will provide you with an unforgettable experience of a lifetime!
Booking an indoor skydiving birthday party is simple. Most facilities have a separate department designed for planning the perfect party for you and your guests. You can generally have as many guests as you please however, you will need to specify the number prior to booking. Once you confirm the amount of guests, you will pick a day and time you would like to celebrate. Larger groups should typically plan for 2-3 hours at the facility. Full payment or partial deposits may be required at time of booking. It’s as simple as that! Now that you have the party booked, you can consume your time with finding the perfect outfit to wear under your jumpsuit!
Booking a child’s birthday party is simple. As long as each flyer meets the specific location’s age and general health requirements, they can participate. Keep in mind that if the participants are under the age of 18 years old, and their parents are not going to be present at the time of celebration, a legal liability form/waiver will need to be filled out in advance. Some facilities offer printable forms, and others offer digital submissions. While each parent may not be required to attend, it is likely that the facilities will require that at least one adult is present during the entire party duration.
When booking an adult’s birthday party, educate yourself with the health and weight restrictions at the facility you are planning to attend. Each participant will be required to fill out a legal liability release prior to participating. Being that each participant is over the age of 18 years old, most establishments allow enough time and resources to complete those forms upon arrival. Although some facilities may offer food and alcoholic beverage services, keep in mind that depending on the location, participants may not be allowed to consume alcohol prior to their flight sessions.
Each facility will vary however, most will offer different features that can add to your birthday party fun.
Pricing always varies depending on the amount of fliers and how much time each person flies. First time participants generally fly anywhere from 2-6 minutes, allowing customization of packaging. Group packages could potentially cost less per person for the flight sessions than typical first timer pricing. Basic party options will more than likely include 2 minutes of flight time per person with media (pictures/videos), training, and equipment rental included. Private events allow for large sums of time where groups can go in and out of flying as they please for specified periods of time. This eliminates the hassle of planning specific flight time per person. However, this option generally costs a significant amount more than typical party packaging. Be sure to check with the facilities group sales department for group package options and pricing. Keep in mind that most added party options and features usually have an additional price tag. Room rentals, food, and decorations may not be (and typically are not) included in the advertised party pricing. Be specific when asking for pricing and request an itemized breakdown of costs when determining which options you want to add to your birthday party. Although indoor skydiving birthday parties have the potential for a hefty price tag, when it is all said and done, you and your guests will be left with a memorable experience that you will be talking about all year long!
There is no better way to introduce yourself to the world of indoor skydiving than to experience it with the one’s you love. Celebrating your birthday by flying, is a fun and unique experience for everyone!
