Always wanted to go indoor skydiving in Ireland? Finally, your chance is here! Belfast-based adventure centre We Are Vertigo is expanding into the Titanic Quarter with the launch of the first and only indoor skydiving centre in Ireland, representing a £1.5 million investment.
Opening this December, the Vertigo Indoor Skydive Centre will be a state-of-the-art facility located in the former T13 building in Belfast. The facility will be developed using the world’s leading Aerodium tunnel technology, used by the movie industry to film stunts for award-winning movies including the final fight scene in Jackie Chan’s Chinese Zodiac.
Commenting on the expansion, We Are Vertigo managing director, Gareth Murphy, said: “Our mission as a company is to provide unique leisure facilities and this expansion follows We Are Vertigo’s success in opening Northern Ireland’s first trampoline park in 2014 and Northern Ireland’s first indoor ski and adventure centre in 2013.
“Indoor skydiving is already popular world-wide and we are proud to be the first company to bring this to the island of Ireland. We’ve invested heavily in the location, technology, equipment and the training of the centre’s instructors to make this a world-class facility based right in the heart of Belfast.
“I’ve no doubt it will be a welcome addition to the leisure and tourism industry in Ireland.”
Indoor skydiving is suitable for those aged four and upwards. The facilities can also be used by professionals to train for skydiving qualifications. An indoor skydiving session will start from £45.
