City Skydive

4 min 13 min 37 min

Many people dream of being able to fly, and at City Skydive these dreams can come true. This is the world’s first indoor skydiving centre with two wind tunnels side by side. In a safe environment, under the guidance of certified instructors, you can experience freefall as a recreational flyer. It's like jumping out of a plane at 4,000 metres, but without actually having to launch yourself out of the plane.

A minimum of four flights are recommended for any novice flyer. Four skydives give you the chance to learn more, which allows the instructor to let you fly more freely. Skydiving on your own is ultimate freedom!

Tip: there are often special events, such as a date night, ladies night and days for sports flyers.

Fancy some action? Then head to the Kartfabrique in Utrecht. Guaranteed fun for young and old. Compete with one another during a heat of go-karting on the karting track or during an exciting game of laser tag in the Netherlands’ largest indoor laser arena. If you prefer not to complete but would rather play together, then try to crack the 39 cells of Prison Island with your team! Prison Island is a mix between an escape room and Fort Boyard where everyone can show their strongest side and where you try to reach the high score together.

Tip: there are great deals available where you can combine go-karting, laser gaming and the escape room.
