The Flying Contini's!!

Sometimes it is a challenge finding activities that appeal to both a 5 year old and 13 year old, not to mention my 8 and 10 year old.  So when I spotted a Groupon a few weeks ago for iFly I jumped on it!

Where's Pete?  He has a panic attack just walking across the Golden Gate bridge so wasn't particularly interested in taking part in this activity.   It was just me and my boys!

We each got 2 one minute flights.

Christopher looked so tiny, people were surprised that he was willing to do it!  He loved it!

Zach was a natural and seemed to know best how to hold his body and relax.

Vinnie was his usual goofy self, laughing while in there!

Exhilarating!!  What you don't see in the pictures is when the instructor grabbed each one of us and then flew to the top of the tunnel, up and down at incredible speed, then came down spun us around!

I highly recommend this place!!  I can't think of a time when we had more fun than this.  The boys all want to do it again.   I do too, and will make Pete come next time.

The expression says it all!

This was right before they shot up and out of sight.  Chris looked scared, but said he loved it!

This shows the instructor disappearing up the tunnel with one of us.  Not sure how high it is, but it was HIGH!

I had no idea such a thing existed but I'm not at all surprised you signed up for it.


Awesome! What a great time it must have been.
