Customer Reviews

I am so happy I made the decision to visit Thermal Valley. I felt extremely safe and I laughed so much. Craig and I sang as we took flight! I was able to maneuver the hang glider myself and I enjoyed every minute! It was so gorgeous being in the sky and looking down. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and put our (the hang gliders) safety first! The "tugger" pilot was hilarious and made me feel better about the experience! The lady who helps to sign you up was so warm-hearted and kind. You will enjoy the company as much as the ride!

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.

I absolutely loved it. The moment I pulled up everyone was so incredibly nice. They explained everything in a way that I could understand. I went at 2000 ft and I got a video for $40 extra. The view was beautiful and all the pilots were so incredibly nice.
