iFly performs at Mirdif City Centre
Even if your credit card has taken a
beating during the sales there’s still a great reason to head to the mall: a
chance to see spectacular airborne acrobatics – and even try it out for
Next weekend at Mirdif City
Centre, iFLY Dubai’s instructors will put on a thrilling display of manoeuvres
and tricks as they go airborne inside 10-metre high wind-tunnels, accompanied by
a sound and light show. The fliers, including the UAE's first National
accredited instructor Ahmad Hassan Belal Al Muri, will be twisting and turning
in winds as fast as 200kph, imitating the effect of a skydiving free fall.
Then if you’re brave enough (yes, that includes you, girls – no reason for the guys to have all the fun) you can try it
out for yourself. One of our Ahlan! colleagues has done it….and she was still
wearing a big adrenaline-grin when she got to the office the next day. Or, if you want to score big points
with the children in your life, head to Mirdif in the morning, when children
aged 3-12 can try a mini-version of the same thing. Jumping out of a plane
without the fear of falling? Sounds great to us!
