"SkyPark" Grand Opening
YOU'RE INVITED to the GRAND OPENING!
June 12, 2004, of the new Indoor Skydiving wind tunnel, at Perris Valley Skydiving, the latest attraction at the newly-formed California SkyPark, the world's only aerial adventure amusement center.
Festivities begin at 7 a.m. with the majestic launch of more than a dozen hot-air balloons. The rest of the day will be filled with wind tunnel demonstrations by world-famous jumpers, ultralight flybys, and lots of descending parachutists, all complemented by plenty of food and drink. You can watch these aerial adventures - or have one of your own, including wind tunnel or ultralight flights, tethered balloon rides, or even a parachute jump! California SkyPark will fill your day with fun and adrenaline, from sunup to sunset - and then some. Here's what's on the SkyPark menu:
Skydiving School. Want to "put your knees in the breeze?" The Perris Skydiving School offers the country's premier training courses in basic and intermediate parachuting. Start with a tandem jump, where you freefall and fly the parachute while attached to an instructor, or go straight to independent freefall and parachute flight, wearing your own equipment, but accompanied until "pull time" by two instructors.
Indoor Skydiving. Want freefall fun without the fear? Try Indoor Skydiving, where you can fly on a 120-mile-per-hour vertical column of air and experience the same feeling of freedom and fun a skydiver does. No kidding, this is as close as it gets to the real thing; that's why world champion and national champion skydiving teams practice in this vertical wind tunnel to improve their skills.
Ultralights. Want to experience flight the way the Wright Brothers did? Adventure Sports Aviation offers introductory flights, instruction, and sales and service for those who want to fly the old fashioned way: low, slow and lots of fun!
Balloons. Take a $5 tethered balloon ride and float like dandelion fluff above the grand opening landscape. Enjoy the silence, punctuated periodically by the dragon-breath hiss of propane burners sending more hot air into the towering colorful "envelope."
Whether you came to the Grand Opening to watch or play (or both), you can end the day at its world-renowned Bombshelter Sports Bar & Grill and our special Grand Opening Party. Watch from the outdoor patio as the sunset load jumpers land across the runway. Inside, see historic photographs and action videos, experience a great menu and complete bar offerings, and listen to the day's "jump stories."
We hope to see you there! Go to www.skydiveperris.com for more details. Bring this invitation with you for $20 off on all Sky Park offerings during the Grand Opening. All outdoor activities are "weather permitting!"
