Soaring Celebrations


We’ve scaled the heights of the birthday party circuit from exotic pet visits to circus classes, so when we heard about iFly, a gravity-defying, thrill-seeking experience, we had a feeling it would totally take off with our adventurous kids.

Located in Oakville, iFly offers an indoor skydiving experience for kids and adults aged 4 and up. After approximately 30 minutes of pre-flight classroom instruction, followed by some practice and warm-up exercises, kids will be suited up—young pilot enthusiasts will love the fighter-pilot type suiting and safety helmet. A young flyer then gets to enter the vertical ‘wind tunnel’ using just their body to free fly. The wind tunnel simulates the atmosphere of jumping out of a plane—but safely.  An instructor assists one-on-one the entire time, helping kids maximize their experience.

The actual flying time ranges depending on how much ‘air’ time you buy, our five and nine year old testers went for two separate flights of 60 seconds each which sounds incredibly short but was memorable enough for them to keep talking about it for days.

iFly offers party packages, including a party room and catering, for up to 12 participants—and while you’ll find this a more expensive party option than most, for kids who can’t get enough adrenaline, this simulated skydiving experience will have them soaring with excitement for days following.

Whether you’re looking for treats, cool activities, or someone to take the work out of hosting, we’ve got your kiddo’s birthday party covered.
