Bodyflight Bedford is home to Europe's largest recreational wind tunnel. The tunnel is used by skydivers looking to improve their technique or to practice acrobatic stunts in a safe environment, as well as sport tunnel fliers. Interested amateurs looking simply for an experience of weightlessness can book short courses. The company offers flying experiences from as little as £39 (€45) for two 75 second 'flights' including instruction.
Experienced tunnel fliers can book tunnel time with or without instruction.
Bodyflight is developing a range of additional adrenaline options including a simulated 'base jump' off the outside of the tunnel, a long zip line slide and a surf simulator.
The company is based at Twinwoods Business Park close to the village of Clapham and to the Yarls Wood Detention Centre. Visitors may find it useful to know that the post code will not work in satellite navigation systems.
