All of the staff is fantastic with their craft and extremely personable. The experience is so fun and gives you chance to fly the hang glider and do 360s. Unlike sky diving it gives you a better chance to take in scenery. If you haven't done this I would HIGHLY recommend it!!

Hang gliding was an awesome event for our family! Take a few layers of clothing just in case, sunscreen if it's extra sunny, and sunglasses with a cord. Snacks and bottled water are good too.

Be prepared to have the time of your life. What a thrill. Warning, this is highly addictive. I will be back. Hang Gliding is just a blast, then you add the fantastic people that run this, and you have an incredible memory that will last you a life time. 5 star all the way in every way. John
