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.

My grandkids and I enjoyed watching the gliders gracefully decend after being released by the tow planes.

My boyfriend and I went soaring over the past weekend. The staff was experienced and friendly, and the soaring was amazing! Definitely a neat experience and something everyone should do! Well worth the value...if you break it down, these people have overhead, paying both an airplane and glider pilot, and the fuel for the plane. Actually, a steal for the... More
