Cooper and I recently got a chance to visit the Rosemont iFLY location during the Kohl Children’s Museum “playdate” event. I had the opportunity to fly at the iFLY in Naperville with Dexter a few months ago and we both fell in love with it. Dexter was a natural (see his photo, video, and more about our experience here)! Cooper was a little more nervous about the idea, but definitely wanted to give it a try.
We both had training before our flight. Our first flight was 1 minute long and we basically got a chance to try flying on our own, with a little help from our instructor. Our second flight was the same – 1 minute long – and the first 30 seconds was like the first flight, and the second 30 seconds the instructor grabbed on and took us on a high flight.
Although I don’t think he was quite as excited (obsessed?) with flying as Dexter was, he had a great time and loved the experience. He did admit he was a little scared during the high flight with the instructor, but he was glad he tried it.
We also got a chance to sample lots of yummy food from several of the restaurants at the MB Financial Park in Rosemont (where iFLY is located).
I look forward to returning to iFLY for another flight experience someday!
