The Chicago area's second iFly indoor sky-diving facility will be coming to Naperville next spring after the city council unanimously approved the Texas-based company's plans this week. A fan system blowing through a 50-foot tall flight chamber creates the conditions for indoor sky diving, in which participants can "fly like a superhero" without jumping out of a plane.

About this Article

A .7-acre lot in Naperville's Freedom Commons originally set aside for a bank soon will be home to something that's been called a lot more thrilling -- an indoor sky-diving facility. "We offer a completely safe environment in which to experience the same thrill and excitement of jumping out of an airplane and free-falling," iFly spokesman Stuart Wallock said.
