Quick $20 ride. Longer options available at a much higher cost. Be prepared to spend $5 on headphones (which you don't actually need). Friendly staff. Like most attractions in Myrtle Beach coupons are available....use them!

It's probably the fastest way to see Myrtle Beech! Seems like it was over only a few minutes after it began though. All of the staff were very friendly and made sure you were safe at all times. The pilot was great too. Very smooth and obviously very experienced. Nice takeoff and landing.

My 10 year old son really wanted to do this. Me, not so much. We got there before the place opened but the second the place was ready for business the nice lady who worked at the counter came out and asked us to come inside. There were several rides to choose from and she was very low pressure in... More

Surprise birthday gift for my guest. He loved it. Which is why got a 3. We took to 2 mile at 20.00. Beware the intent is to upsell. The office woman very pushy. Lady Im not buying a house...... 5.00 headphones which could care less about. Then the pilot asks for tips. Come on now...really.... They should be free with... More

Don't get me wrong we had a great time and loved the flight. But this is a quick sell, up sell type place. I did not want to pay $5 for headsets. I take these tours all the time. The headsets never work. They cut in and out. They are a waste of money. They twisted my arm into paying... More

Captain Kyle was great and comforting for my daughter and gave us great insight for things to look at. Fun trip and comfortable and smooth.

Wife and I were both prior Military and have flown in helicopters, including during Desert Storm over Kuwait. However our daughter (11) has never flown in one. They do offer Military discount of 5 dollars a person which covered the headset rental, which I recommend to talk to each other and to cut noise which is pretty loud. We paid... More

My wife and kids have never been in a helicopter so we figured we'd give this a try. We visited in lat December so there was no wait. You walk in and they let you choose your package without any sales pressure. Since they've never flown I opted for the $39.95 package for each of us which is the 2nd... More

I wouldn't go and there were no other singles there which meant my husband had to pay for the 2nd seat in order to go. I thought that stunk... but my husband didn't seem to mind. He LOVED it. He paid for the 8 minute ride. I timed it, from take off to landing, it was only 5 minutes ,... More

That's a terrible ride. They lie to us. They said that the ride would be 3min and 2miles (the one that I bought), but actually was 1min and less than 2miles. We paid $20, fly 4fan tour. I complained and they didn't anything. This company doesn't have a phone number or even a email address. You might have lucky buy... More
