Ever wanted to go skydiving but too afraid to take the plunge? Skyventure Colorado located in Lone Tree is the perfect place for commitment-phobes seeking adventure after sessions at NFPA’s 2011 Backyards & Beyond Wildland Fire Education Conference.

Four 300 horsepower fans located on opposite sides of the building power wind gusts in the flight chamber up to 180 mph, giving visitors a realistic simulation of free-falling. It’s the closest thing possible to human flight – who wouldn’t want to give it a try? Get suited up in real skydiving gear and experienced instructors will teach you how to ‘ride the wind.’
