Full description
Embark on a ride to remember aboard an 8-minute helicopter flight. Combine adventure with spectacular views as you soar above Niagara Falls, USA. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by friendly staff at the ticket booth located just minutes from the Rainbow Bridge. You will walk up a flight of stairs to our raised heli-pad, where you will receive a quick safety briefing. You will then be loaded into a McDonnell Douglas 500E Helicopter, where all guests will enjoy a window seat.  The helicopter will slowly climb to 2500 ft, where you will enjoy the closest and lowest views of the American Falls and Canadian Horseshoe Falls from the start of the flight. You will continue along the Niagara River catching glimpses of rainbows as you go. As you travel along the Niagara River, observe it descending towards the rushing rapids and separating around Goat Island and Three Sisters Island. You will experience the best views of the falls and surrounding area, including the Rainbow Bridge, Bridalveil Falls, Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist and Queen Victoria Park. The flight will return back along the Niagara River giving you another magical view of the falls before landing back at the helipad.
