    This had been discussed in another thread, but apparently the new location is open on I-Drive near the convention center:



    This is much more of a tourist attraction for the passers by than the old location (which looked like a silo or an industrial plant of some kind). The see through wind tunnels on the sidewalk will bring crowds.

    Now, what will happen to the other location?

    I once reserved a flight at iFly San Diego. Then I read the waiver and I was shocked. They won't take responsibility for anything, including "improper maintenance of any equipment". So no iFly for me, unless they make their waiver more reasonable.

    I tried this back in 2003 and had a blast, I'll need to try it again.

    These are spectacular. I love how this one reminds me of the one they built out at the USH Citywalk. Adds a lot of energy and excitement to the area.

    This + Top Golf + Andretti's is going to turn the convention scene on its head. Can't wait.

    Surpinging enough, they really do attract conventions. I think it has to do with having fun after a stressful day or as a place to hold negotiations / small informal meetings near your hotel.
