HOO-HAH!!!

First time in a helicopter, one of the highlights of our 4000 mile, 10 state Corvette trip. It was everything I hoped it would be and maybe even better.

Great value for overview of the Black Hills area. The scenery is beautiful, pilot very capable and narrates as he pilots.

I've always wanted to take a helicopter ride and had been waiting for a scenic area to do so. We did the Mt Rushmore package and it was very beautiful. Fun to see the buffalo from the air and of course the monuments. I let my husband ride in front as he was really the one that has been waiting... More

I debated paying the money for what seems like such a short time but it was really amazing! Be prepared: If you try to fly by yourself there is a surcharge of 25%. If you wait a little bit though you can tag on to another group which is what I did. I even got to sit in the front... More

We went on a Tues. but was unable to fly b/c of the wind. We went back on Wed. It was a great trip and the views were awesome. We highly recommend this activity!

First time my wife flew in a 'copter and she enjoyed it! Well worth the money - the pilot was well versed w/information. This gives you a different view of many of the highlights - depending on which flight you take.

I have been around the Black Hills since 1986 and have seen Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Sylvan Lake many times but never from a helicopter. The perspective from a helicopter ride was fantastic. It gave me a new and refreshing look at all of the monuments. The staff was excellent and the helicopter was cool. I would recommend this... More

My 13 year old daughter and I took a ride over the Badlands ($119 each). I think it was a 9 or 11 mile jaunt. Nice way to see the formations. Pilot was a great guy. After the ride we spent about 30 minutes walking around in the Badlands and then drove the loop as we continued on to the... More

Our whole family decided this was a once in a life time opportunity for all of us so we had to give it a try. We were not disappointed at all! We just wish we could have gone for longer. We did just the $50 tour since there were so many of us. Our daughters who are 4 and 6... More
