Best New Thrill

iFly Chicago

5520 Park Pl., Rosemont; 1752 Freedom Dr., Naperville

Too chicken to jump from a plane? Try the next best thing at iFly Chicago, which lifts you off the ground by way of an enormous vertical wind tunnel. Opened in May, the indoor skydiving facility offers an experience somewhere between freefalling, trampolining, and superhero flight training. You’ll suit up, learn hand signals, and then float atop 125 mph winds. Two 60-second flights start at $69.95. For $9.95, the High Flight upgrade will have you zooming up and down the tunnel—stomach drops and all—like a real-life Spider-Man.
