Have you ever wanted to jump off a cliff, but don’t want to hurt yourself or die?
A new attraction called Jump that arrives at the mega American Dream Mall in East Rutherford promises the smell, feel and joy of the safe jump.
There is already an indoor skydiving attraction called iFly in Paramus, which offers a glimpse of what it feels like to jump from a plane.
With Jump, the launch is “hyperreal,” meaning customers put on a wing suit and a virtual reality helmet to see and feel what they can hear jumping off cliffs and skyscrapers in the Jump hangar of 5,000 square meters, which uses suspension and wind systems to simulate the experience.
The location of American Dream, which will open in late 2021, is Jump’s first. Another will follow in Utah, the state of origin of the company.
Founder James Jensen co-created The Void, the virtual reality company behind the 2016 “Ghostbusters Experience” at Madame Tussauds in Times Square, and other former Disney theme park attractions that closed in 2020.
“Hyperreality means we’re creating an experience that includes various sensory elements, including the sensation of wind and heat, smell (like the aroma of pines), and the actual physical sensation of jumping and finally flying,” Jensen said in statement.
Jump currently offers a pre-sale of package passes through July 9, which starts at $ 99 for two people and costs up to $ 11,999 for lifetime passes for three people: jump.aethrkey.com/passes.
