Additional Information

This elongated helicopter tour of the lakes takes you further than the standard lake-view flight. You’ll soar right over the Douglas Dam, and continue over the lake. In the summertime, you’ll be rewarded with sun-dappled vistas of the waters and the people having fun by the lake. Come winter, when the water levels recede, the revealed islands and coves offer remarkable sights. Please note that at least 2 guests are required to reserve a flight.

Best experience ever - Best experience ever. First I talked with Adrianna. She helped me set everything up. Then there was Braden. He was our loader ( person who helped us get in the helicopter) He was great. He even got a step stool for Andrea who is vertically challenged ( short). He did all the photos and they were great. Then there is Tyler. Our pilot. He was great. He explained different things as we went over it. He made us feel comfortable. Couldn't ask for a better pilot. Then there was Adam. He was inside helping us with shopping ( even though he is a Tennessee fan ROLL TIDE). I had the opportunity to meet the owner and it was like talking to just a worker. He was down to earth. WILL BE BACK AND DEFINITELY RECOMMEND. SCOTT and ANDREA

So much fun and no long lines - Always wanted a helicopter ride and while on vacation we finally did it. As a small business Owner, I can tell you this place is dialed in really nice. Lots of parking, super friendly staff, the have food and huge selection of beers, I mean a ton of beers! They also had many packages that would allow Just about any person to get a great ride at what they deemed affordable. Not sure? Take a quick ride then go back for more. So much fun and no long lines like all the other attraction's that treat you like livestock.
