Time Out says
Go skydiving and experience the thrills of a free fall – without jumping out of an airplane. How does this work? It all happens in a giant 20m-tall transparent wind tunnel with strong winds blowing from the bottom, the speed of which is adjusted to your body size and skill level. The basic plan includes a skydiving outfit, a brief introductory lesson, a fly session of one minute, plus photos and videos of you floating in mid-air. However, we recommend adding on the ‘Taxi Flight’ (¥600) plan, which lets you experience another minute of free-falling, where an instructor will take you up and down the tube several times.
For first-timers, the ‘Taxi Flight’ session is thrilling enough. But if you want to build up to the level of an experienced skydiver and perform gravity-defying stunts in the wind tunnel, sign up for the flight school, which includes ten sessions at ¥22,000 (children aged 4 to 15 ¥18,000).
