This project was tabled at the Alpharetta Zoning Meeting. Stay tuned.
With franchises across the US and the world, indoor skydiving may descend into Alpharetta.
Austin, Texas-based iFLY Indoor Skydiving has filed plans with the city to build a new entertainment facility near Mansell Road and GA-400. If approved, the facility would replace the empty restaurant building that was previously home to Champps Americana — a 10,000 square-foot building.
iFLY designs, manufactures, sells and operates wind tunnel systems for indoor skydiving, which offers guests the chance to experience the thrill of freefall without the risk of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane.
Following a brief training session, fliers are outfitted in a jumpsuit, helmet and goggles before entering the wind tunnel with their certified instructor. First-time flyers float on the column of air and learn basic flying skills like moving forward and back and turning.
With additional training, flyers can progress to group flying and advanced aerial gymnastic maneuvers to further enjoy the sport of indoor skydiving.
The facility will target multiple demographics including corporate team building events and families seeking unique entertainment options. Children as young as three years old can participate.
iFLY’s proposed location would complement a soaring array of unique entertainment options along Alpharetta’s Mansell Road corridor. TopGolf targets a similar corporate clientele.
As we hear more Scoop on zoning approval or construction, we will keep you in the loop.
