It was an amazing experience! I bought this experience for my boyfriend and myself for his birthday. The date I wanted had to be rescheduled due to weather conditions, but the second date I had chosen was perfect. The weather was amazing and clear. Thomas is a pro and definitely will make you feel safe. His team is very friendly and will hand you water bottles and even snacks as you wait your turn. If you have someone who to film your take off, best spot is up close, right underneath the wing (they'll have to crouch down low of course). The video that you pay extra for came out great!
I had a great time, and I'm glad I got a video also to show to my girlfriend and friends.
Sorry honey.Better than sex. Your gonna need to step up your game.

Hi Charles! Thank you for this amazing review and we are so glad our flight school was able to blow this experience out of the park for you! Hopefully we will see you back again soon for some more amazing experiences! Regards, Cloud 9 Living Team
This adventure was for a tandem hang-glide. The day was VERY windy, so we were not able to complete the normal flight plan. Once released from the tow plane (ultralight), we actually went backwards and had to land on the fairway of a local golf course. Landing on a golf course made the experience unique, which made up for the lack of flying around the area, salvaged the day and made the experience most memorable. I purchased the video of the flight which was a disappointment. While the first segment of the takeoff and ascent recorded properly, as did the second segment of some of the actual flight, the third segment of more of the flight, the descent and the landing did not record at all. Had I requested a preview of the video I would not have purchased it. Buyer beware. Overall, I would recommend this adventure, but make sure the weather conditions are right, and preview the video before paying for it.
I received this as a birthday gift and it was a memorable experience. Everyone had a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Once we climbed to one mile we really soared! This was a great experience, and I highly recommend it. Thanks, Cloud 9 Living.
Process was pretty frustrating. My hang gliding flight was postponed due to bad weather, and then the instructor kept calling me to confirm/update me on my flight. (I had to call him 3 separate times, and after each call I was left with a feeling of uncertainty that he was listening or understood my questions and concerns.) Then the day of, I was told I'd be 4th in line -- 3 people went, then somehow 4 more people were still in front of me. When I asked the pilots when it was my turn, they all looked dumbfounded and said "oh you should be in the air now." So it was an entire frustrating process from start to end, but as far as the hang gliding experience, my instructor was very nice and I felt safe and comfortable and enjoyed the actual flight.
Great experience... hang-gliding was a blast!!!
It was such an amazingly freeing experience. I definitely recommend this to everyone!
