Morningside Flight Park Kitty Hawk Kites, Inc.
Laser tag, ziplines, hang-gliders, and paragliders aren't your typical bumper crop. And yet that's what can be found at Morningside Flight Park, which uses its green expanses as a training ground to help humans conquer the domain of birds and Frisbees. As students master the principles of piloting a paraglider, steering a hang glider, or flapping their arms really hard, they're treated to picturesque views of New Hampshire. All the while, expert instructors relay techniques and principles of safety in a fun and focused environment.
