What You'll Get
From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon: for $64, you get an aerobatic airplane ride from Specialized Helicopters in Watsonville (a $129 value).
Specialized Helicopters' professional pilots guide thrill-seekers on roundabout tours of the skies located above Monterey Bay during the 15-minute aerobatic airplane rides. The copilot seat affords passengers 360-degree views during a high-power takeoff and a smooth progression of loops, turns, and twists that could transform knuckle pigmentation from normal to clown makeup in a matter of seconds. While airborne, the plane makes diving runs of 3,000 feet and completes a giant 1,000-foot loop before sticking the landing back on earth. Passengers should arrive at the Specialized Helicopters base at least five minutes prior to their appointed takeoff.
