Proposed Indoor Skydiving Center in Overland Park Draws Skepticism

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — A proposal to bring indoor skydiving to a Kansas City suburb hit an obstacle when city council members questioned the peculiar shape of the building.  IFly Indoor Skydiving, of Austin, Texas, wants to open a business in Overland Park. The 60-foot building would have two columns on each side of a wind tunnel, allowing customers to free fall and float.  Members of the Overland Park City Council said Monday they were concerned about placing such an odd-looking building in a main part of town, particularly if the business closed.  The Kansas City Star reports that an IFly representative said the base of the building is the size of a typical restaurant and the structure above could be removed, although none of the company's venues across the country have closed.
