SPECIAL EVENT: Try Indoor Skydiving at iFLY Fort Lauderdale!   iFLY, the world’s largest indoor skydiving operator, has announced the introduction of a first-of-its-kind virtual reality experience to complement current flight offerings. Consumers will “jump” at the chance to take indoor skydiving to new “heights,” experiencing near-real-life skydiving sights in some of the nation’s most beautiful destinations – like Southern California, Hawaii, Switzerland and Dubai without setting foot in (or out of) an airplane. Fliers will also see themselves seamlessly jumping from a plane through a hyper-realistic free-falling experience, with complete immersion via iFLY’s state-of-the-art VR helmet and headset. The experience utilizes first-of-its-kind virtual reality technology application, powered by Samsung Gear VR headsets and iFLY’s wind tunnel technology, allowing participants to combine the thrill of skydiving from the perspective of a professional skydiver all in a safe and controlled environment. “The idea of a virtual reality flight experience has been a dream of the iFLY brand for more than two decades, but the technology wasn’t there,” said Dave Kirchhoff, iFLY CEO. “VR headsets are nothing new but nobody is applying VR technology to real-life scenarios like this. We are truly pushing boundaries to make this iFLY experience one-of-a-kind by making the dream of flight more tangible and more real than ever before.” All participating flyers must first complete iFLY’s pre-flight training course and participate in several training flights before jumping into VR. The iFLY Virtual Reality Flight Experience is available to individuals ages eight and up. For more information and scheduling a visit to iFLY Fort Lauderdale, visit www.iflyworld.com/fort-lauderdale or call 954-280-4359.

SPECIAL EVENT -Chihuly GlassA stunning collection of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly’s unique glass artwork.  Chihuly – The Macchia – A Study in Spontaneity-Museum Exhibiton (until September 28)- Dale Chihuly is the world’s foremost glass artist and this exhibition of his Macchia series celebrates his remarkable powers of innovation and imagination. In Italian ‘macchia’ has come to suggest the spontaneous outpouring of artistic sensibility and by choosing the title Macchia for his works, Chihuly pays tribute to the Italian glass blowers on the island of Murano near Venice. He has adapted the Venetian practice of blowing bubbles of molten glass into metal molds for his own dynamic purposes and then spinning the vessel open in the final moments of forming to awesome proportions.  Chihuly often refers to the mystery and magic of glass. The transformation of sand and a few other elements into glass seems truly magical. Admission: $10 adults, $8 seniors, Students & Children are free; Time: M-F 10am – 5pm;  Venue: Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts, 481 South Federal Hwy., 
Dania Beach, FL 33004   Phone:   954-376-6690

All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.  ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. (Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further  exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals.
