BY Dan Berthiaume

Yonkers, N.Y. – Forest City Ratner Companies, the developer and owner of Westchester’s Ridge Hill mall in Yonkers, New York, is adding an indoor skydiving facility, one of only 14 in the U.S.

IFly Indoor Skydiving will break ground this fall with an estimated completion date in early 2015.

The IFly experience is powered by four fans located at the top of the building that create a cushion of air within the wind tunnel on which a person can safely float. No special skills are required and almost anyone older than three can participate.
