5. Indoor Skydiving

If mom is up for some adventure she’ll love a trip to Oakville’s iFLY! For anyone who wants to experience flying without the added fear of extreme heights iFLY has the wind tunnel of your dreams! It’s an opportunity to experience the sensation of a free-fall. Imagine a 14-foot cylindrical diameter vertical tube that is 45 foot tall in which the airstream is passing at a speed of 175 km per hour. Once inside the wind tunnel, you will have a real sense of what skydivers experience during the free-fall portion of their jump, which is generally done from 13,500 to 3,500 feet of altitude at a speed of 200 km an hour. All of that in an environment so secure, it is safe for young children! For more details visit or phone to book a flight at 289-795-4000.
