$99 for Euro-Style Winch Thrill Ride (a $199 Value)

An 8,000-foot cable attached to a fishing-reel winch volleys gliders into the air at speeds faster than those of a modern commercial jet, accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. Passengers experience acceleration faster than a commercial jet, taking off at speeds of 200 mph across a mile of runway. Each launch mimics the catapult of a fighter jet on an aircraft carrier.

At the top of the ascent, the glider breaks free of its cable, and a veteran pilot steers the vessel gently back to earth to conclude the adventure. The duration of the ride varies based on weather and other conditions. Round-trip transportation to and from the flight site is available for an extra fee.

Las Vegas Glider Rides

The skilled pilots and instructors at Las Vegas Glider Rides have accompanied more than 6,000 passengers on flights over Nevada’s scenic desert landscapes. After they’re towed aloft behind planes via 200-foot cables, glider passengers cut loose and set sail for a leisure trip, flying lesson, or acrobatic thrill ride with a seasoned glider pilot. Flyers can also memorialize their trips with an edited 7.5-minute video featuring preshot wing and tail angles and in-cockpit footage of impromptu aerial drag races with passing pterodactyls.
