What You'll Get
Early man's attempts at flying included sewing feathers onto his arms and scaling mountain peaks in order to cling to the underbellies of passing comets. Get a bird's-eye view the new-fashioned way with today's Groupon: for $95 you get a 30-minute helicopter tour of Chicago from Rotorzen Helicopters, Inc., (a $199 value).
Lifting off as many as 10 times per day from Midway Airport, Rotorzen Helicopters sends tragically unbuoyant cloud-gazers into the sky for 30-minute tours of the Windy City. Chicago's photogenic architecture and notoriously shy lake quickly become camera-hungry hams as licensed pilots safely glide above the metropolis while sharing their vast knowledge of its history and favorite tickle spots. A maximum of three passengers are allowed on each flight to ensure a comfortable, if not romantic, experience for everyone on-board. Rotorzen's tours provide both in- and out-of-towners the rare chance to stand above some of the world's tallest skyscrapers, peak into the backyards of neighboring states, and play an interactive game of Tic-tac-toe with Chicago's famed grid system.
