WATCH: Ireland's first indoor skydiving centre lets you freefall at up to 200kmph

Vertigo Indoor Skydiving, the first and only indoor skydiving simulator on the island, has officially opened in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter.

The £1.5/€1.7 million facility is a new venture from Belfast-based adventure centre, We Are Vertigo, allowing adrenalin junkies to experience freefall conditions with speeds of up to 200kmph.

The skydiving technology has been used by the movie industry to film stunts for award-winning blockbusters, including the final fight scene in Jackie Chan’s Chinese Zodiac.

It has also become an increasingly popular sport in recent years, with individuals and teams taking part in bodyflight competitions including the Indoor Skydiving World Championships.

"We’ve invested heavily in the location, technology, equipment and the training of the centre’s instructors to make this a world-class facility based right in the heart of Belfast," said We Are Vertigo managing director, Gareth Murphy.

Indoor skydiving is suitable for those aged 4 and upwards. The facilities can also be used by professionals to train for skydiving qualifications. 

An indoor skydiving session starts from £45/€51.
