Is Indoor Skydiving Exciting?

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

Are you looking for a thrill? Something new, different, and most importantly, exciting? It might be time to try indoor skydiving! 

Though slightly more mild than actually jumping from a plane, the fun and exhilaration of indoor skydiving should not be underestimated. Looking to learn a little more? Consider this a crash course on the appeal of indoor skydiving. 

The Novelty of Indoor Skydiving

Why do we seek out new things? Well, in part, it is because there is some biological appeal: experiencing elation stimulates your brain and arouses feelings of satisfaction and pleasure. 

When the body experiences an emotional state such as excitement, the adrenal glands secrete … you guessed it … adrenaline! This chemical rush leaves you feeling pumped and primed to take on anything. 

Additionally, when the body is excited, dopamine – the pleasure neurotransmitter – is released. When this surge of dopamine occurs, you are left feeling, simply put, great! Because the reward center of your brain has been activated by the release of dopamine, you view the experience as fun. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself craving more. It’s quite literally natural!

Trying new things, like indoor skydiving, for the first time is exciting! Because of the novelty of the indoor skydiving experience, you may feel an adrenaline rush the first few times you fly.

Indoor Skydiving Is A Great Stepping Stone

Say you want to experience skydiving, but you’re not quite ready to commit to strapping yourself to an instructor or donning a parachute and leaping from two miles up. Indoor skydiving might be just what you need. 

Indoor skydiving can give you a taste of skydiving in a more controlled environment. In this way, indoor skydiving can help temporarily satiate your adventurous streak and, perhaps, also help you to build up the confidence you need to tackle the real thing!
