We were blessed with amazing weather and the experience as well as the views were amazing. My dad and I were planning to be the only riders but by the time I landed, my 11 yr old son was begging to fly like the birds. Bo was our instructor/pilot and he was a wonderful. My son was scared but brave... More

My son and I wanted to do something different, our experience at the Airsports Park was AWESOME!!!! I am even afraid of heights, but I embraced the experience. We can't wait to go back and do the mile high package. I think hang gliding is going to be our new family hobby. We will take instructional classes from them and... More

We had a groupon to hang glide here. It was a great experience. The staff was friendly and professional. We decided to get an upgraded package that took us a bit higher so that we could do more tricks in the air. We also got the video and photo package, and the quality was great on them. However i cannot... More

This place was amazing and the people were terrific. You're only up there for a handful of minutes but the memory will last forever. It's a beautiful site and a real thrill to be thousands of feet up in the air flying with nothing more than a glorified kite. I am terrible scared of heights and even I really enjoyed... More

My sisters and I took my 18 year old niece for her birthday. She wanted to skydive but I think it's better to fly than fall and the groupon was cheaper. My niece is a bit of a dare devil so she was game for it. We made a lovely day out of it with breakfast at Cracker Barrel before... More

This was the best experience ever! You have to go through the clouds there's nothing like it! The staff is extremely friendly as well. We actually spent an extra hour just conversing with the staff after our flights. This is my family's new Christmas tradition. I would highly recommend!

The experience was amazing! It is much more calm than skydiving which I have done. They strap you in right above your tandem instructor. He is in control the entire ride. You get to enjoy the view! I purchases the Groupon coupon and it did not come with pictures, which sucks. The pictures are 100$. You get video and pictures.The... More
