Customer Reviews

Craig, Laura and whole team at Thermal Valley is so nice and wonderful. I wanted to try free flight before trying free fall (sky diving) and I must say that my first experience was awesome and made me much more confident. The awesome fall sunset view made the experience much better. Highly recommended.

For some reason I thought I was going to run off the side of a mountain, sort of like what they do at Kitty Hawk, but I got towed way, way, WAY up in the sky, before being released. It was both exhilarating and terrifying, but what a fantastic experience. The family operation is top notch and everyone was welcoming, accommodating, professional and warm. I would not hesitate to do this again. It's a great way to see the fall foliage.
