iFly Singapore: the world’s largest skydiving simulator

iflyNever thought of going skydiving? Well, you should. Scheduled to open to the public on Sentosa in the second half of 2010, the S$25 million investment iFly looks to make more than S$15 million in revenue in first year of operation.

Reinforcing Singapore’s position as a world-class tourist destination, another exciting development will be opening soon on Sentosa. iFly Singapore, the world’s largest skydiving simulator, celebrated its groundbreaking today in front of more than 100 special guests, including VIPs, esteemed business partners, shareholders, media and Guest-of-Honour, Mr George Yong-Boon Yeo, Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Scheduled to start operations in the second half of 2010 and representing more than S$25 million of investment, iFly Singapore is forecast to attract more than 100,000 visitors and generate more than S$15 million in revenue in its first year alone.

iFly Singapore will offer anyone from first-time flyers, aged three years and above, to professional skydiving enthusiasts, the opportunity to experience the thrills and excitement of the adrenaline-pumping sport in a safe, realistic and affordable indoor setting.

Designed by award-winning architect firm, Formwerkz, this first-of-its-kind facility boasts iconic architectural features and an unprecedented layout and dynamism guaranteed to please even the toughest of architectural critics. The construction for the
facility was offered out to tender and has been awarded to Planar One, who has vast experience in constructing attractions on Sentosa. The construction will be scheduled to commence from early September 2009.

The skydiving simulator powered by the latest wall-to-wall airflow technology will feature a vertical wind tunnel measuring five metres in diameter and a flying height of 17 metres (or equivalent to a five storey height), allowing up to 20 professional flyers to
fly together at one time. The transparent wind tunnel will offer flyers spectacular views of the South China Sea and Sentosa’s Siloso Beach as well as a nightly fireworks extravaganza from ’Songs of the Sea’. Visitors will also be able to enjoy more than 10,000 sq ft of food and beverage space offering a large array of choices, making iFly Singapore an ideal venue for family gatherings, parties and corporate events with an exciting twist.
