Located in Bayfront Park, The Flying Trapeze School provides one of the most adventurous experiences in Miami. Here a group of circus professionals teaches even the most unathletic (that would be me) how to hurl themselves into the air on the trapeze and then fall safely to the net.
Lessons take two hours, with the beginning of class devoted to instruction and safety training. Don’t worry―safety harnesses protect participants throughout the lesson. It is a thing of fear to stand on a tiny platform, lean into the breeze, and then fly through the air screaming at the top of your lungs. What a rush! (Not to mention a serious workout for arms and abs.)
The Flying Trapeze School: Bayfront Park, 301 North Biscayne Blvd.; (786) 239-8775. Classes are $40; reservations required.
