Many love adventure sports but do not have the gumption to try them. Skydiving is one such adventure sport that is hugely popular, but a few brave hearts try it. To help many realize their dream of skydiving, two cousins from Hyderabad have decided to try out a new idea, and it could be available in the city within a month’s time. Well, they intend to set up an indoor skydiving space.


Called Gravity Zip, one can experience floating in the air at Gandipet, right next to CBIT college. Ram Meda and Sushil Meda are the entrepreneurs behind this venture. The extreme sport is housed inside a huge cylindrical tunnel that is 23 ft tall, made of quality glass called Triple X, that is made only by a handful of people around the world.


However, both Sushil and Ram are seasoned entrepreneurs. They already run an amusement center in Karnataka and wanted to start something similar in the city they were born and brought up in. They share that they lived in the US for many years and that their children enjoyed skydiving there. So, they wanted to bring something interesting to the city.


The cousins reveal that being engineers, they spent one entire year figuring out the technology and equipment for the project. In all, the whole effort took them three years, and they are thankful to their investors and staff. During this time, they say they worked for 14 hours a day. But their biggest challenge was to tide over pandemic. Traveling to different non-English speaking countries, getting technical expertise for safety precautions, securing permissions, shipment of equipment when the world was shut down, etc., were the major challenges they had to face.


Ram and Sushil add that their staff is top-class and well-trained in Europe. They are certified trainers from Europe who hold a 20-minute talk before the 40-minute skydiving experience. Most of it happens to be about the signs to use to communicate once inside the tunnel.


They are contemplating charging Rs 2000 to Rs 3000 per session, and the cousins hope to expand to other cities in six months’ time.
