1st time in a tunnel
Have a 13 yr. old who has the skydiving bug. Since he can't jump yet we ran down to Skyventure Orlando to let him try it. We booked 1hr and 15 min. of total time. It was amazing to watch him progress. I had a lot of fun as well. Sure is a great work out (I know my wallets lighter!) But worth every penny to see his face.
Yeah, the little punk wanted to know since he's starting to pack and if he keeps it up in the tunnel, would they let him skip AFF. He forgot about the whole saving your life thing at the end. And to that end he's reading The Parachute and its Pilot so he also plans to be swooping during AFF. To be 13 and know everything. I reminded him of "The great teacher" - intense physical agony mentoined several times in the book and that keep it up and he would get a lesson.
