The entire first time flight experiences take roughly 1-2 hours. After arriving and checking in, you take part in a personalized training session before gearing up to fly. During your flights your instructor teaches you to fly your body. You take turns flying one at a time with other first time flyers.

I flew several hours at XP and loved the tunnel! The staff was great, the tunnel is run very well and the building has lots of space to hang out and debreif. The only complaint was the wind got choppy at high wind speeds.
