The view of the Hoover dam and Lake Mead was excellent! The price for the ride regardless of package selected is very reasonable. The view from the air is one you'll never forget. The new bridge span that goes over the Hoover Dam is spectacular! I would recommend anyone that travels to or around the Las Vegas area to take... More

We took the Dam flight. It was a great experience. We highly recommend. We did not have to wait long. There were three of us. Our pilot was Jim. He provided info to my wife, who was riding up front. Very cool views.

driving towards the hoover dam we saw the sign for helicopter rides under 30$ no way thats true so we had to stop on the way back to vegas. It was so true there was no way we weren't going to do it. 30$ gets you a 2 minute ride (basically its a nice view but the point is your... More

I came here last year with just my son, so this time I brought along my daughters as well. We came for our flight in the morning around 10, and we didn't have to wait at all! Just filled out some paperwork, paid with a credit card, had our weight taken, listened to an ultra-brief safety talk, and away we... More

Indeed the $20 helicopter ride is tempting, you would regret being here if you are interacting with the only lady working there(in her 50's). She is full of attitude and would treat you as harshly. I felt that I may be mistaken about her attitude, but people interacting with her said the same thing. Worst customer experience. Pros: $20 for... More

Friendly staff, it's a bit like a conveyor belt though and the driver up the hill goes too fast for nervous passengers in cars! The $29 ride is literally 2 mins in the air, $59 gets you just over 5 mins and goes over the Dam and Lake Mead really enjoyed it but they do expect tips. Don't expect to... More

Took the $29 dollars ride, 2 minute trip. Really short but my first helicopter and it was fun! Staff was nice, just ask when you sign up how many groups are in front of you.

Very enjoyable. We took the five minute flight { some bonus time was in there too} , over and around the dam and lake mead. Very impressed with the staff and their knowledge. I avoid things like Ferris wheels, trams, etc, but this was so different! What a pleasant surprise. Will definitely do it again if in the area. There... More

We took the route over the Hoover Dam for $60 per person and it was awesome! It is about a 5 minute ride but felt much longer while in the helicopter. Also the pilot gave us an extra minute and a half ;) The staff was all very nice and "real". The lady who does the safety overview is Dam... More
