Laurel Thomson (cq, left), 16, of Parker talks with Kate Buckley (cq, right) of Overland Park, Kan. while waiting for their next flight in a skydiving simulator at Skyventure Colorado on Monday March 13, 2006. The force of the wind running through the tunnel tends to pull longer hair through the holes in the helmet and requires participants to remove any loose objects from pockets and clothing. The Lone Tree, Co. company uses four 300 horsepower fans and state-of -the art technology to replicate a freefall skydiving experience inside a wind tunnel. The newer technology employed at the site makes it easier and safer for first timers to learn to control their movements while suspended in midair. An "Intro to Flight" experience is $48 during peak hours and $44 during off-peak hours which includes a class and two one minute flights.
