Though it prohibits us from bench-pressing cars, gravity is the best thing for getting water out of the sky and the only thing keeping football stadiums from floating away. Resist it with today's Groupon: for $164, you get a 22- to 24-minute Ancient Ruins tour for two people from Arizona Helicopter Adventures (a $274 value, including airport and fuel charges).
The crew at Arizona Helicopter Adventures escorts passengers on bird's-eye-view tours of the red rocks of Sedona and boasts a sterling safety record. Traveling twosomes board Jet Ranger helicopters, which delve between Secret Canyon's 2,000-foot walls before coasting over Secret Mountain and Mogollon Rim, where they can feed starved eyes with memorable vistas. Pairs can snap pictures during the descent into Boynton Canyon and while hovering over the vast Sinagua Indian ruins. All of the pilots at Arizona Helicopter Adventures have past experience flying copters for the U.S. military, DPS law enforcement agencies, or in Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, which, like this tour, will usually last 22–24 minutes.
