The adventure begins as your helicopter lifts vertically off the Royal Gorge Heliport, giving you the thrilling sense of freedom only found in a helicopter. Moments later, you are soaring over the canyon rim as the earth opens up to reveal a nearly 1,000 foot drop to the Arkansas River below. With breathtaking views of the suspension bridge, sheer granite canyon walls, and majestic mountains, this is the ultimate scenic adventure!

This was so much fun! Pilots Will and Eli were so nice and very professional. My daughter, her ten-year-old son, and I enjoyed every minute of our ride to view the spectacular Christmas lights of Colorado Springs. So that's three generations of happy travelers. Highly recommended!

The ride was smooth, not like a small plane at all. Great view of Xmas lights. Cautious and professional pilots rescheduled when conditions warranted it. Nice people! Thanks!

What do you give a man who has everything? A memory to cherish & brag about to his friends! The tour was beautiful, the pilot was entertaining, and the memory was bragged about to many! Thank you!

We value experiences over things and the helicopter ride over Colorado Springs to see the holiday lights was awesome--I just could not stop smiling at how I had surprised my husband with this special gift. The cost was worth it when I saw the look on his face when we simply lifted up off the ground and flew away. What... More
