2. Why exactly Aerodium? A little from the company’s history

They cover all needs for skydiving– indoor and outdoor usage.
3. Innovation is a key. Indoor Skydiving Wind Tunnels for Retailtainment Business.
Shopping malls with cinemas, attractions and family entertainment places are far more likely to increase the dwell time of their visitors. They create an environment that has multiple focuses. The hottest trend in the retail real estate industry are shopping centers incorporating attractions and entertainment.
4. Potential factors affecting shopping mall attendance
Indoor and skydiving is an ideal combination for people who expect something new when visiting a shopping mall. A wind tunnel enables people to experience the sensation of flight without planes or parachutes, through the force of wind being generated upwards.
5. Larger than life “wow-factors”
Skydiving gives the same feeling like the real flight. It is like freefall, but in a safe way.
Quite a typical review from customers:
“So much fun. If I lived there – I would do this once a month or more. I take some practice to perfect the skydiving experience. A great experience for a small fee, well worth it.”(by Tripadvisor)
6. Is that costly for users?
It’s more cost effective to get the freefall sense in a wind tunnel that it is in the sky. There’s much more continuity in a wind tunnel flight, instant feedback from instructors and less distraction. It’s also generally not that expensive for the time. Rates for flying are $25-28/minute depending on the tunnel and the size of the block purchased. Coaching fees can add a few more dollars per minute but it’s usually reasonable.
7. Is that ready to implement right now?
Company latest product for fast implementation called SHOPPING MALL READY model R2.
This model is perfect for integration into shopping malls. It’s the very first vertical glass tunnel integrated inside a shopping mall (not to be confused with “attached to building” – that is totally different). It is individually designed and produced for new mall projects or assembled into already completed buildings. Thanks to this innovative solution, it is possible to turn back time and implement a major object into an available space after work on a shopping mall project has started and all main building constructions already exist.
All you need to do is know the ceiling height, choose the right spot with the most spectacular view and provide electricity supply. It really is a plug & play story!

NEW Outdoor skydiving model O2
WOW! Approaching from a distance
The main difference from the indoor model is its placement outside closed spaces. Of course, there are also many technical differences,
but from the strategic point of view, this one is more important.
7. Outdoor application
An outdoor skydiving wind tunnel is very flexible for application. It offers the possibility to quickly change the location within one object or move to another, depending on necessity, such as a new promotional activity and is ready for immediate use – it takes only 1-2 days to set up. The tunnel is adaptable for any available area like in front of the entrance in a shopping mall. Many prominent companies have already rented outdoor models for shows to promote a brand or a particular product. Along with incredible show options, the outdoor skydiving models attract shoppers to the new unprecedented experience of free falling in the safest way.
Outdoor models attract more attention from a distance that is always important to entice new and existing customers.
8. Rent option
Another option is short-term and long-term rent that quite often transforms into a permanent skydiving simulating object. Renting is very convenient if the retailer thinks that the attraction is necessary for a high attendance period. Wind tunnel rent requires a smaller financial investment without losing the moment of surprise for shoppers.
