Helicopters were originally invented by a child prodigy, who only wanted a remote-controlled toy to pass notes at camp. Get a broader view of clandestine activities with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $199 for a twilight helicopter tour for two with champagne (a $438 value)
- $599 for a private party for up to 10 with a helicopter ride (a $1,300 value)
A twilight tour provides romantic suspensions over the glittering expanse of Los Angeles. Before lifting off for the 20- to 25-minute ride, each passenger takes his or her place at a window seat for unobstructed observation of many of the city's famous landmarks, including the Hollywood sign, Mann's Chinese Theater, and Walt Disney Animation Studios. While bubbly champagne tickles tongues and eyeballs feast on the city lights, an MP3 stereo headset with two-way communication allows pairs to whisper "I love you" or call out state license plates spied on speeding cars below.
Located in an airport hangar, two-hour private parties are led by a coordinator and an assistant. After a pilot discusses flight safety and gives guests a tour of the helicopter, he takes 10 people on an five- to seven-minute flight.
