JACKSONVILLE (ActionNewsJax.com) -- Bozard Ford Lincoln is the starting point for the One Tank Trips.

Jeff King, the dealership's general manager, has selected a Ford Fusion Hybrid for this week's trip down to Orlando.

"This will get you there and back on very little gas," he said. "And link up your phone as well."

The car's navigation makes it easy to get to your final destination, King said.

After arriving in Orlando, the parachuting adventure begins.

Located off of Interstate 4 near International Boulevard, IFLY Orlando is one of only 24 facilities in the world where adventurers can skydive indoors.

The facility is a vertical wind tunnel that looks like a spaceship from the outside. From the inside, the adrenaline starts racing as you hear the roar of the engines.

The attraction uses five airplane engines that suck air into the tunnel, which creates the lift for your sky diving adventure.

Starting at $54.99, an experienced instructor, like our guy striker, will walk you through instructions

Thrill-seekers receive two flights for 1 minute each. And while that may not seem like a lot on paper, it actually feels a lot longer while inside the wind tunnel.

No experience is necessary and the only age restriction is that participants be at least 3 years old and in decent physical shape.

Judging from the experience recently by several kids who were at the center, the experience is a blast.

As for the ride itself: One word, thrilling.
