]If you’re stuck for birthday ideas and sick to death of the usual backyard pool party, listen up – iFly Indoor Skydiving Centre is about to soar to the top of your party plannin’ wish list.

We’re the first to admit that the idea of throwing a birthday bash for little ones is more exhausting than exciting. There’s the planning, the purchasing and, of course, the clean-up – not to mention the responsibilities that come with hosting a hoard of children that have eaten waaaay more than their recommended daily dose of sugar. So, what if we told you that you could avoid all of this, but still host a killer birthday party that all of your child’s friends will be talking about for years to come?

iFLY Gold Coast at Surfers Paradise delivers a birthday party of flight-filled fun, plus so much more. This parachute-free skydiving experience is the closest you’ll get to actually flying. Once you enter the wind tunnel, you’ll be lifted into the air by a column of wind and enjoy the flight of your life, while friends and family watch on in excitement from outside the chamber, or through the glass wall of the private function room that is offered in the children’s party package. Along with a private room, the iFLY staff will handle the food, the fun and, naturally, the flying, so you can sit back and relax – or join in and have a fly yourself!

“The great thing about our birthday party package is that it’s completely customisable to whatever the parents and children would like to do,” says iFLY’s Frazer Smith. “If they want to decorate the room or have all of the kids in superhero flight suits, we can help them achieve that.”

The party package offers a minimum of 10 kids two flights each, plus a birthday cake, food catered by local hotspot, House of Brews, and tonnes of assistance running the party. It’s suitable for kids aged from 6-16, and party guests will walk home in their own souvenir iFLY t-shirt. Want to host a party that soars above the rest?
