Four gigantic fans, 400 horsepower each, located on the roof of the mall at Mirdif City Centre will induce airflow within the flight chambers generating the same wind speed skydivers feel during freefall. Air inside the tunnels will be re-circulated using turning vanes that will help to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the tunnels.
For younger children the speed of the fans will be reduced to ensure safety but will be full throttle for experienced skydivers who describe the adventure as being ‘as close to the real thing without falling out of an aircraft’.
The wind generators, that have a diameter of over eight feet, and weigh more than 2,000 kilograms, are being imported from USA.
iFLY Dubai is one of the five concepts that make Playnation, a single dedicated leisure and entertainment destination in the upcoming Mirdif City Centre. It is the latest initiative of Majid Al Futtaim Leisure, the company that is dedicated to providing some of the most innovative and original leisure concepts seen in Dubai targeting all age groups.
