FIRST OUTDOOR SKYDIVING SIMULATOR IN SPAIN
The Costa del Sol’s diverse array of tourist attractions has been further boost-ed with the official opening of Fly4Real in Campillos. Located at KartCenter Campillos, the outdoor simulator is the first of its kind in Spain. Thrill-seekers can enjoy a double shot of adrenaline by combining skydiving with karting at Andalucía’s longest kart track.
The official opening event was held in June, but the skydiving simulator has been operating since the beginning of May, offering residents and tourists the opportunity of experiencing the thrill of flying in complete safety, according to Fly4Real.
“This is also a very special simulator, as it is the very one which Tom Cruise used to train for his skydiving stunts in the film Mission Impossible: Fallout, before it came to Spain. A skydiving simulator allows visitors to fly on a col-umn of air, without a parachute. It simulates the free-fall portion of a skydive, and is an addictive, exciting and thrilling experience.
“It’s the perfect way to find out what skydiving feels like without jumping from an aeroplane. Suitable for all the family, people can fly from the age of five to 95. It is also excellent for companies to reward their employees with an excit-ing and unique team-building experience.”
Fly4Real’s professional instructors guide visitors through every moment of their flight, teaching them how to fly and how to perform stunts and tricks. After cutting the ribbon to formally open the attraction, Campillos mayor Francisco Guerrero said the town hall was “very clear from the outset that we must support this initiative and bring this project to our area. For Campillos it is essential to improve our tourist offering and this represents a big achieve-ment for our region. We must continue to adapt to attract these kinds of ac-tivities, which offer alternative leisure options for our residents, tourists and visitors of all types and ages. Campillos is proud to have one of the best kart circuits in Europe and the only outdoor skydiving simulator in Spain.”
