James Bond + Vertigo = the UK's newest tourist attraction Friday 8 August 2008 PDF Print An exhilarating new attraction will be opening in the UK on the 6th of September in Bedfordshire. Bodyflight, the World’s largest indoor skydiving wind tunnel, is opening a new thrill ride: Bodyflight Vertigo. A State of the art Fan descender will be opening on the roof of the famous grey tower; allowing thrill seekers to leap from the top and plunge to the ground in complete safety. At a massive 120ft the jump is one of the tallest in the UK and has already attracted interest from thrill seekers and extreme sports enthusiasts from across Europe. “We have become so busy since we opened in 2005 that it made sense to find new attractions to offer our customers” says Manager Bryony Doughty “We hope this will attract even more tourists to Bedford as now not only they can fly and jump in the same day, but the view from the top of the tunnel is awesome.” The launch party for the experience will take place on the 6th of September from 2pm onwards. Media interest has already been sparked in Bodyflight due to the release of the new Bond movie: Quantum of Solace. Scenes for which were filmed at Bodyflight in February. “We have had a lot of interest from people who want a bit of a James Bond experience themselves.” Says Doughty. “Now not only can they try flying in the wind tunnel, just as Daniel Craig did, but they can also jump off the top. You can’t do a combined experience like this anywhere else at the moment” Vertigo is completely safe: customers wear a full body harness which has a cable attached to the back. Once they step off the platform they freefall for the first two thirds of the drop before the cable slows them down, allowing them to gently land on their feet at the bottom. Jumps start from just £30. Gift vouchers are available as are combined visits with the wind tunnel and fan descender for the ultimate Bodyflight experience!
