Don't get me wrong we had a great time and loved the flight. But this is a quick sell, up sell type place. I did not want to pay $5 for headsets. I take these tours all the time. The headsets never work. They cut in and out. They are a waste of money. They twisted my arm into paying... More

Wife and I were both prior Military and have flown in helicopters, including during Desert Storm over Kuwait. However our daughter (11) has never flown in one. They do offer Military discount of 5 dollars a person which covered the headset rental, which I recommend to talk to each other and to cut noise which is pretty loud. We paid... More

My wife and kids have never been in a helicopter so we figured we'd give this a try. We visited in lat December so there was no wait. You walk in and they let you choose your package without any sales pressure. Since they've never flown I opted for the $39.95 package for each of us which is the 2nd... More

I wouldn't go and there were no other singles there which meant my husband had to pay for the 2nd seat in order to go. I thought that stunk... but my husband didn't seem to mind. He LOVED it. He paid for the 8 minute ride. I timed it, from take off to landing, it was only 5 minutes ,... More

That's a terrible ride. They lie to us. They said that the ride would be 3min and 2miles (the one that I bought), but actually was 1min and less than 2miles. We paid $20, fly 4fan tour. I complained and they didn't anything. This company doesn't have a phone number or even a email address. You might have lucky buy... More

This was our first helicopter experience, and it was well worth the $. Note that they advertise a $20 helicopter tour - that is for only 3 mins, and you have to pay an additional $5 per person for the headphones. We opted for a longer tour, and are glad that we did. What a way to see all of... More

We went on the helicopter adventure for my 60th birthday. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Nate our pilot was awesome. None of us had ever been in a helicopter before so it was an amazing experience. A bit pricey but fun

None of our group had been in a helicopter before so we did the $40 adventure. Beware you will need to rent a headset to cancel out the noise and to talk during the ride. Was a fun great quick trip.
