Indoor skydiving facility coming to North Texas

IFly, an indoor skydiving facility is set to open later this year in Frisco. 

An indoor skydiving facility is set to open later this year at the Stonebriar Centre Mall in Frisco.


Austin-based iFly Holdings will build the facility, to be known as iFly Dallas, the 27th indoor skydiving facility for the company.
Earlier this year the city of Frisco entered into an agreement to give incentives to iFly in return for constructing a facility of at least 8,500 square feet. The company received a property tax rebate for 10 years and a sales tax rebate for five years. The Frisco Economic Development Corp. also entered into a performance agreement to help defray infrastructure costs.

“As Frisco continues to grow, it becomes more and more of a destination city,” said Marla Roe, executive director of the Frisco Convention and Visitors Bureau. ”IFly is the kind of unique attraction that will complement the varied sports, shopping and dining experiences Frisco already offers.”

This will be iFly’s second Texas location, with the other location in Austin. The company also has locations in other countries including Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, Russia, Malaysia, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and Brazil
