Highly recommended! Great fun flying above the rooftop in NYC. Me and my 17yo daughter had a great time (I'm the 52yo Dad). A little scary at first but the thrill overcomes that quickly. Staff was great - very informative and took safety very seriously....More

Hi Annie! We don't have an actual number for a weight limit, we determine if someone can participate by whether or not the safety belt will be able to stay in place around their midsection. It can be a sensitive issue, so... More
