It’s essentially skydiving, but it takes place indoors. Imagine yourself with an pair of invisible wings, floating, flying, and free falling through the air at different wind speeds. The best thing is, there’s usually no experience required. That means both children and adults can take part in this fun-filled family friendly sport.

There used to be a skydiving attraction called SkyVenture in Genting Highlands. Unfortunately it closed down a few years ago. But fret not, cause we just heard that the new indoor skydiving attraction will opening at the 1 Utama shopping centre.

How convenient right? The fact that the new indoor skydiving facility will be located in the Klang Valley means you don’t even have to travel very far to experience this flying sport. Since gaining popularity in other parts of the world, this attraction has been used for team-building, in addition to competitions and party games.
