About Paradise Parasail Inc.
Paradise Parasail has been providing family fun on Lake Ozark since 1983. We have time-proven experience and safety you can trust. Our experienced USCG captains will give you the safest and most adventurous flight on vessels that speed along miles of shoreline. After harnessing adventure-takers into the smiley face chute, the wind naturally hoists riders aloft while the 600 foot line sails up above the water. Once capturing the astonishing views, you will have the option to take pleasure in a variety of free fall dips. Select a relaxing dip that just allows your toes to touch the water or a thrilling free fall that gets you soaked. When you are visiting Lake of the Ozarks, we guarantee the best ride anywhere. So make sure it's Paradise Parasail!

Until we boarded the parasail boat, it was all great. Front desk ladies were extremely pleasant to deal with. Shuttle boat captain was super nice. I did not like the attitude of the two men on parasail boat: condescending jokes and they appeared to be bored from doing this over and over although it was not even afternoon. After the experience, there is subtle but still pressure to tip - you are still on the boat in the middle of the lake at the mercy of these two men and one of them is looking over your shoulder as you are asked to complete the form which has nothing else but three options for tipping: 10, 15, or 20%. It is unclear what to do if you do not want to tip. If you decide that your experience was not worth tipping, be prepared to show some resistance here. The parasailing experience itself if very mediocre. You are in the air and do not feel any speed most of the time because the boat is making circles around you. We signed up for the top package which was supposed to be 4 miles, but it was either misleading or not true at all. During landing, the gear moved and I was stuck in a very uncomfortable position and had to strain my arms to pull myself up and stay somewhat comfortable and not hurt myself. We got two pictures since we paid for the top package and they were of very bad quality: on one of them my friend’s face is not even visible. I do not think that this experience is worth paying $99 which is most likely what you end up paying.

We had the BEST experience. Our Captain was over-the-top friendly, funny, and a true joy. His first mate (?!) was good. The nice young lady at the counter was extremely friendly and very helpful. We felt completely safe and staff was attentive the entire time!

Great experience for our family reunion! We sent six young adults ranging from 15 to 19, and they had a blast. Not scary, loved the dips in the lake. The equipment, boats, docks, etc. were in great condition. The staff was very professional and extremely friendly. Highly recommend!
