LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Starting next year, you can skydive indoors at Liberty Center off Interstate 75 in Butler County.
iFLY Indoor Skydiving will open adjacent Dick's Sporting Goods as their first location in Ohio, Liberty Center officials announced Thursday.
"iFLY is an exciting new attraction for our guests at Liberty Center," said Kevin Cedik, general manager of the $350 million outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment complex.
"We continue to add experiences that will attract guests from the region to shop, play and dine."
iFLY has flown more than 8 million people in a dozen countries and at sea since launching the modern vertical wind tunnel industry in 1998, officials said.
The experimental entertainment company has 67 facilities operating worldwide with 28 wholly-owned in the US and has significant growth plans across the globe in the next 24 months.
iFLY supports and utilizes the safety and training guidelines set out by the International Bodyflight Association (IBA) to ensure safety and progression of the sport of indoor skydiving. It also is a great place to hold one-of-a kind parties as well as corporate and team-building events.
The company offers a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Field Trip program for students that was specially designed by teachers and STEM professionals to support classroom learning.
Earlier this month, Liberty Center was honored with the prestigious national award: 2017 Commendation Award for new development from the International Council of Shopping Centers annual global awards for U.S Design and Development.
