The gliding was fantastic! We showed up early and they accommodated my wife and me. We got up there and the gliding was good. Must have been up for at least 45 minutes. Highly recommend it.

Even though they had messed up the reservation I made for my husband's helicopter ride, twice, they made up for it by offering him the biplane experience instead. He had a very wonderful experience. He's going for the glider next time!
