|Believe it or not, that's me!|
Anyway, part of our Saturday itinerary was for us to try iFLY while the little ones would be accompanied by Mama and their nanny at Little Explorers; so yesterday morning, we all met up at Playnation in MCC, dropped off the 4 at the edutainment centre (using Entertainer vouchers), and the rest of us headed to become Superman and Wonder Woman for a few minutes.
Making use of more Entertainer vouchers, Gabe and Hubby said they preferred to fly only 2 minutes, while Ate Ning and I chose 4 minutes. My sister booked us for the 12 o’clock session, and we proceeded to enter our details on the computer, sign the waiver, and wear our bands.
Soon after, one of the trainers called us and a group of kids into a room where he taught us the proper body posture and hand signals.
First we were shown how to position our bodies properly…basically what we were taught earlier: legs straight or bent (depending on his instruction), chin up, arms up and hands at eye level, and relax. Once we had managed to get into the right position, we flew around for a bit.
By the end of the session, we were all laughing and patting each other on the back as we walked out of the tunnel to remove our gear. Our upper arms were hurting from the experience (they still do until now, actually), but it was all worth it.
And since we wanted to have a record of the day we managed to defy gravity, we purchased cute USBs of our photos and videos…again making use of a voucher.
So if you’re still having second thoughts whether to try it out or not, just do it! It's a bit pricey, but they're now offering a UAE Residents Rate, or you can do what we did and use vouchers. Because it’s definitely something to experience at least once in your life.
