A simulated parachute jump from a platform 150 feet above the ground
The anticipation will mount as you ascend to the jumpstation - 150 feet above the ground. Your harness and ropes will be attached - one end to your back, the other to the Powerfan. Take a deep breath and step off into the The Abyss! Falling at 97% of gravity, your heart will race as you begin your descent. In the final thirty feet of your fall, the sophisticated Powerfan technology will guide you in for a smooth and gentle landing.
Your voucher entitles you to a simulated parachute jump that will leave you breathless! Upon arrival, you'll be briefed, weighed and the appropriate precautions taken to ensure your jump is safe. You'll climb to the top of the jump platform and be strapped to a harness and rope ready to go. The Powerfan technology works by dissipating your potential energy over the course of your descent by means of a fan. This allows you to make a smooth and soft landing, just as though your parachute had safely deployed! This experience is an exciting introduction to the sensation of parachuting - or an alternative for those who don't like flying! Photos/merchandise will be available to purchase on the day.
