Paradise Parasail has been providing family fun on Lake Ozark for over 33 years! 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!

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience from start to finish! The girls working the check-in desk were friendly and helpful. Captain Chase was so kind and patient with my mom who is in her mid-70s with poor vision which is a challenge anywhere, but especially so on a watercraft. He was charming and entertaining as well as Shane his shipmate. The... More

If you have never tried or been too afraid to try, DO IT! We had a fantabulous experience from the girls at the registration, the capt of our transfer boat, to the staff that sent us a sail! I wish I remembered all their names so I could give them a shout out. I personally have a fear of falling... More

Captain and crew were very nice and made it clear safety is #1. We had a three and six year old who were hesitant but the captain is a pro and the kids loved it.

From the phone call to make the reservation, to the check, to the funnest ride we have ever had; they made our trip wonderful! We used a Groupon and upgraded to the top package and now have a go pro video, all the photos they took of the ride. Absolutely loved the experience. The captain and the crew were extremely... More

From the time we made our reservation until we finished - the experience was incredible. We used a Groupon ... and decided to upgrade to their 1/2 off for life package for a couple dollars more. The weather was perfect and being 300 feet above the water was an experience we will never forget. The take off and landing were... More

Thank you so much for the great review of our parasailing flights! You really can't beat the 1/2 off lifetime Polaroid that comes with our Deluxe flight, so I am thrilled to hear you took advantage of it. We look forward to your return in the future. Captain Neil More

This was so easy to do and not frightening at all. Paradise Parasail has a great video on their web site and lots of FAQs so that you can know ahead of time exactly what to expect. We had a great time...I took my granddaughter...I am 55 and she is 13...we loved it!

Our reservation had to be rescheduled because of weather so we appreciated the call to reschedule. Upon arrival there were about six others with either the same reservation time or just walk ups so our scheduled time actually ended up being 45 minutes late. However, it was well worth the wait as the experience was exceptional! As a note- the... More

Thank you for taking the time to share with us. I am glad to hear that you had a great experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. The rainy weather has been less than ideal this summer season, and we do our best to offer flights if the opportunity allows. We follow very specific safety standards in regards... More

Just like everyone else said, this is a great activity! Located near the bagnell dam, and requiring many steps! I used a groupon for $99 (for two) and added the go-pro camera for $35. The video came out very well. Just a note for plus-sized folks like myself; the life jackets and harness had plenty of room to spare. I... More

We had a group of four people. We had purchased groupons for a 3 mile ride with 1 dip buy one get one. We had made reservations and they took us above the walk ins which was nice. However, the girl at the check in counter was not friendly and was very rude and snappy. She didn't explain anything well... More

We recently flew here on a family vacation in July. The whole process was smooth and the staff were all friendly. The ride was awesome and gave great views of Bagnell Dam. Our son is 11 and had never gone before and ended up loving it.
