While we were visiting South Dakota we wanted to do something different in with our 3 grand kids ages 12,14 and 16. So we took them to the Black Hills Aerial Adventures for a introductory helicopter ride, they just LOVED IT! It is a short ride but well worth the $49 per kid. We Made memories they will never forget... More

My daughter and I took the Crazy Horse flight. Our pilot was friendly and informative. It was our first time in a helicopter and we both enjoyed the experience!

It was my 1st helicopter ride & it was a blast! I did the #5. It's just under a 30 minute ride. This was my favorite adventure on a 5 day anniversary vacation. It was the most expensive for the amount of time. We also did the train & hot air balloon rides. I sat in the front. My husband... More

The helicopter tour was ok, but pretty expensive. The kids said it was "ok". One of the longer tours may be more exciting.

We took the Custer State Park Tour for $139 a person. Never got out of the sight of the highways. We went around Crazy Horse and maybe a mile or less south east of the monument where there was a private herd of buffalo and a small pond in the distance. I dont believe were were in Custer State Park... More

What a great experience. It was our first time in a helicopter, but pilot Mike made it educational and exciting. We went on the $99 tour, and they divided our family into two groups. They got us up in the air within minutes of arrival--and what an experience to see Mount Rushmore from the air. It is expensive, but so... More

We took the scenic 20 minute flight. Price was reasonable for what we were getting. We flew to Mount Rushmore and saw it from a view I'll never forget asking with Crazy Horse monument. Learned a little history as well. Glad we did this first to see how the country was laid out from that post of the country.

We didn't know what to expect but we took a chance on the Mt Rushmore/Crazy Horse 25 minute tour. Beautiful ride, very smooth, great pilot and worth the money

Go ahead and do it. We loved the experience and seeing Crazy Horse Memorial from the sky was worth every penny.
