Our Mom decided to try another thing on her bucket list - hang gliding. She did a tandem, 2000 ft flight - midday. I would highly recommend Dramamine (especially for new flyers). It wasn't any easy flight for her as the winds were strong and...More

It was exhilarating and a unique experience Staff were professional without being stuffy, encouraging and fun!! I would do it again and upgrade to a higher flight. Could be a family affair, but I believe children must be 9 years old to participate.
