The 2014 season has begun! As long as the weather and the Mississippi river level cooperate, we will continue operations throughout the season. During the season we are open 7 days a week (weather permitting) from 11:00 am to dusk. There are no reservations; walk in, purchase one of our four ticket options, and we will have you up as quick as we can. There is a 2 ticket minimum per flight with a maximum of 3 passengers at a time. Children under the age of 2 may ride on an adults lap for free, children over 2 years of age must be in a seat, which requires regular ticket pricing. The maximum weight per seat is 300 pounds and the maximum combined weight of all passengers cannot exceed 550 pounds, we do apologize for any inconvenience but those are Federal Regulations that are not negotiable. We are typically flying between 100 and 120 MPH so we cover a lot of ground in just a short time.
