BEWARE HIGH PRESSURE SALES TACTICS & HIGH FLYING IS EXTRA $$$
Nickname:
Review Date: January 31, 2020
1/5 Stars

Please beware if you call to inquire, the high pressure sales tactics are terrible. They won't stop talking until they get your credit card they won't let you off the phone so you will have to be prepared to hang up on them politely after trying to tell them 'thank you' several times and they keep talking. Second, be aware that the flight purchases are only for VERY LOW FLYING (5 to 6 feet off the ground). If you want mid-level or high flight experiences, you're going to have to pay ADDITIONAL - A LOT OF EXTRA MONEY $$$ as an 'add-on fee'. The photos are very deceptive, so don't think it's going to be a really amazing wow experience unless you pay a lot more!


Poor service

On November 29, 2019 I called ifly in Gaithersburg to cancel a slot for November 30 at 1430hrs, due to circumstances beyond my control I wasn't able to participate. The scheduler asked do I want to reschedule but I decline because I didn't know when I was able to make it to Gaithersburg. So he told me that the manger will credit my account and it will take 5days. Its been 5 days no refund nor receipt nor phone/email saying anything. Also I was unaware that they will charge my credit card a day or two before my time slot. Please be aware of this fraudulent activity that they are displaying. I will look for other activities to do in montgomery county md. First and last time with them.


Great way to learn a new skill.

Wanted to learn a new skill without the risk. Loved it so much, I have gone back every week since. My instructor Sasha is an amazing trainer. Even introduced an old friend to indoor skydiving. Try it out. You will not be disappointed.

It was our first time and we didn't know what to expect. We were celebrating my son's birthday and it turned out to be amazing. At the onset, I was so impressed and pleased with Drew, who helped to handle my online reservation. He was both courteous and professional and got my reservation straightened out quickly as I inadvertently double booked. Everyone in the flight party had a fun time. The flight staff were great and very organized. We will definitely be back in the near future for more flight training skills. Thanks for an amazing time!

Father’s Day

So I purchase a flight for my husband for Father’s Day and reserve a time of 3:30. We get there and they are running 20 minutes behind and there at least 15 people that also have a 3:30 reservation. If I’m given an appointment for a specific time, I don’t also expect someone 15 other people to have the same reservation or for you to be this much behind on a day filled with reservations for everything.

Came in on a whim during the weekend, and was warmly welcomed by the staff & coaches.
Despite the other review; the cost was typical for most tunnels + its location close to the city. You can easily buy packages for more time at a fraction of the cost.

Gave this a try and had a really good time. Went with my wife and 4 kids aged 6-13. Ash was our instructor and he was really good. Made it a fun time for everyone.

Almost $100 for a few minutes of "flying". When my son started to enjoy it - he was told it was over.
