What You'll Get
Mankind has looked toward the sky for millennia, dreaming of flight, exploration, and lost birthday balloons. Keep your head in the clouds with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $165 for a discovery tandem hang-gliding flight for one (a $279 value)
- $299 for a discovery tandem hang-gliding flight for two (a $558 value)
Before taking flight, student pilots learn about procedures and how to steer a tandem glider. A Dragonfly plane then tows the instructor and pupil up to 2,500 feet above the earth, where gliders are released from tow ropes and soar for 15–20 minutes amidst clouds, birds, and hopelessly lost fish. Customers may also purchase footage of their flight (a $75 value) at a 25% discount.

About Thermalriders LLC
A triangular form soars across blue skies and swoops over Texas's sprawling terrain. But the flying figure isn't a bird or a frustrated geometry student's homework—it's one of Thermalriders’ gliders, which let novices master the art of flying under the guidance of U.S. Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association-certified instructors. During aerotow flights, instructors and students can then break free from gravity's tight grip as Dragonfly planes tow them to heights of up to 2,500 feet. Thermalriders' instructors also have the ability to capture each flight on video.
