Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

Had a great time riding with my 7 y/o daughter and 8 y/o son. We did the deluxe ride with 2 dips. The kids loved the dips. I felt very safe and secure. The only reason for not giving 5 star reviews all around- I thought it was pretty pricy- $280 for 3 riders and then a tip was expected. We believe in tipping well, but this sort of aggravated me since the cost was so high, but that's just me. Overall, it was a great experience for us!!

Thank you for taking the time to send us feedback. It is always nice to hear how much our younger customers enjoy parasailing. We can't stress enough that safety is our top priority, so that fact that you felt safe and secure brings a smile to my face! Although the packages might seem pricey, they are actually really competitive with the most reputable parasailing companies across the country. We work hard to keep our rates from increasing, but we aren't willing to sacrifice our safety or customer service to do so. We hope to see you for many more summers to come! Thanks, Captain Neil

Fun While It lasted. We Got To Parasail But We Were Told It Was 30 To 45 Min So We Were Shocked To Go From Shore To Shore In 16. I Had Only 1 Hour And 20 Min To Get Back To The Hotel To Pick Up kids From Daycare So I Looked At My Watch Right When I Got In The Boat. I Commented That It Was Less Than Twenty Minutes And The Captain Said To Calculate It. I Guess He Ment That Was 2 Miles. Overall Not Worth The Cost.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do tell customers your adventure lasts around 30-45 minutes. However it should have been clarified that this includes the shuttle boat ride as well. Our flights do go by miles, not minutes, however your feedback will helps us to improve on our customer service and communication. We don't ever want customers to feel they are not getting what they pay for. We hope you visit us again and give us a chance to give you a ride you won't forget! Thanks, Captain Neil

First time parasailing, my teenage son & I went during a trip to Lake of the Ozarks. The people were amazing. From the girls at the counter, to the shuttle boat captain, to the guys on the parasailing boat. Everyone was great!!

We went for my daughter's 13th birthday and took the 4-mile, double dip with photos and video. The boat captains were friendly and helpful, equipment looked to be in excellent to new shape and who wouldn't want to soar under that happy face? We enjoyed ourselves more than I could have believed. The photos turned out well as did the video. The girls enjoyed it so much that we will be letting them do it again tomorrow.

I took my 6yr old parasailing for the first time and in her words "It was awesome"!!! Captain Corey and Captain Chase made the experience even better - lots of fun and good with the kids. Corey did a great job at explaining what to do and not do - Safety first! Impressed with quality of equipment used. I'll definitely be back!
