We told you already that this isn’t your ordinary shelter, but this won’t be your ordinary trip as well! Check out our Things to-do List below and there you will find all type of activities except, well, you know, the ordinary ones!

Arrive at iFLY Manchester and get started by putting on your gear and going through a specialised training session from an expert flight instructor.

You’ll learn how to safely float in an 1000-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air commonly used by professional skydivers without having to jump from a plane. Just about anyone can fly and no experience is necessary.

Once inside the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel the adrenaline rush as you float at wind speeds reaching 130 to 175 mph (209 to 282 kph). The stable wall-to-wall airflow keeps you from falling off the column of air and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you.

The entire indoor skydiving experience takes about 90 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to 13 people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor twice – the same freefall time as three tandem skydives!

Old Trafford

Visitors can experience the club’s history and go behind the scenes with the Manchester United Museum and Stadium Tour. The Museum covers an unrivaled depth of history & the 80 minute guided Stadium Tour allows visitors walk in the footsteps of legends, calling at the players’ dressing room, before walking out of the tunnel towards the hallowed turf. Visitors can take their seat in the Managers’ chair in the dugout and imagine the roar of the crowd on a match day.

Additionally, visitors can have a bite to eat at the Manchester United Red Cafe. Visitors from all over the world are welcome to Old Trafford, and audio guides, souvenir guides and guided tours are available in a range of languages. We’re committed to giving the same great experience to all visitors, so the tour of Old Trafford is fully accessible to wheelchair users, and the Museum has a lift to allow access to all 3 floors. Whether you’re a Manchester United fan or not, a visit to Old Trafford stadium is a day to remember.
