Fly like a superhero in Sydney's West

The fascination of flying is one I’m sure has crossed your minds. Ever since you were young, you've watched cartoon superheroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, or even the Powerpuff Girls, soaring over the clouds, fighting evil & saving the lives of innocent civilians from above. Admit it, we all know you’ve secretly pictured yourself flying over greater Western Sydney in your dashing superhero costume and accompanying cape, bringing justice to the world whether it's saving a tiny kitty in a tree, or breaking up a fight at Centrelink, Mt. Druitt.

Unfortunately, this post isn't a a reveal of a top secret recipe that'll transform you into the next Blossom, Bubbles or Buttercup. Contrary to popular belief, we at WestThings HQ don’t actually have an underground laboratory where we mix superhuman concoctions out of sugar and spice and everything nice. And no, there’s no purple beaker containing chemical X, that’ll help you majestically gain the power of flight. I heard if you drink red bull though, it'll give you wings? Lol, but what us WestThings crew do know, is a place where we can go when we want to feel how it is to fly with zero gravity beneath us. A place where we’re not spiralling from the Earth’s stratosphere, but instead, soaring like masters of the sky.

This place in Penrith is for all of those (like us) that live for the thrill and exhilaration of skydiving, but are too pussy to step out of a plane 14,000 feet above the Earth. It’s for all those adrenaline junkies out there that fear the failing parachute, and want that comfortability of safety attached to their lives. It’s for (according to their website), children as young as 3 to your great, great-grand parents of 103. So take a step into one of the world’s largest glass flight chambers where massive wind generators lift you effortlessly into flight on a cushion of air. And for a moment of heavenly, weightless, bliss, feel like you’re a superhero, higher than everything beneath you.
