The sights and sounds while soaring are absolutely amazing! The views are incredible and well worth the time and money!!! I would recommend a soaring adventure be added to everyone's Bucket List and this is the place to do it from.

Have been coming here for years. Now sharing experience with my 15 year old daughter. Great physics and history lesson(ww2 glider training site). If you get motion sickness be ready. It was worth it but the ride up and the circular route can leave you a bit queasy. Not as bad as a boat ride on choppy water but similar.

Year in and year out, nothing beats a hot summer day/night than heading to Harris Hill. For the kids there are the 4 or 5 kiddie rides. For the mid teenagers and up there is the put putt, the driving range,mini go carts, softball and baseball batting cages. Nothing, I can honestly say, nothing up at Harris Hill is over... More

Took my husband up here for a special treat for his birthday. We waited in line a bit, but he was able to soar. His ride ended early and they gave him a complimentary flight at another date, of his choice. 2 for the price of 1 - thanks for the memories! Amazing!

Our vacation decision at Finger Lakes region is mostly based on the location of the soring center. It is a unique experience that I know my kids will really enjoy. You will need to either call or go in person at the club to secure your flight. During your wait, you can visit the nearby museum as the flight ticket... More

We spent the afternoon on Harris Hill watching the soar planes being pulled into the air. There is a great viewing area on the side of the hill with several swings and park benches. Very relaxing and beautiful.

My husband and daughter went up in the gliders and loved it. Everyone was very friendly and it was a no fuss attraction.

Check the prices for taking a glider ride and if you have it in your budget go for it! It is an experience like no other. Call ahead so you can make sure they are flying and you have a reservation.

Wonderful panoramic view of the Elmira/Horseheads area. Sit on the swings and look out over the area below. The soaring center is a great place to get a first hand view of the gliders.
