This was just one more thing checked from my bucket list. Tiki and Bart were great as per all of the other Tripadvisor reviews, and I had a great time. But, don't get fooled into thinking the base camp is in Wilson. It isn't! It is a 35 mile drive from Jackson to Alpine junction. Not just the 6 miles... More

My husband and went out and did this as it was something I have always wanted to do. The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly! Tiki and Bart make you feel right at home and explain everything about hang gliding to you. We did 2000 feet and it was simply amazing....the thrill will last you a lifetime! Get your pictures...

Even the drive to the runway was beautiful - and the staff could not have been nicer or more knowledgable about their sport.

Cowboy up is a great adventure. We planned it for a guys trip as one of our adventures. 3 of the 4 guys were able to go up. Everyone enjoyed it. the 2000 ft option lasted about 15-20 minutes. The only real information I would like to share that hasn't been shared by other reviews is that if you are... More

These folks were great at explaining how safe hang-gliding is. The view from the glider is spectacular and the ride down is very peaceful. Go do this. It's a blast.

Start to finish a very rewarding experience. They are very professional, friendly, and fun. We did the 2,000 ft option and now I wish I had gone for the 4,000 ft. Just a wonderful time! They are heading to Houston for the summer. If you're there, or know someone who is going to Houston, give it try. You won't regret... More

This JH adventure rose to the top of my list quickly. I was a first timer and it was incredible. A bit leary of heights, I chose the 2,000 ft option. From the time you take off and land, it is a good 25+ minutes which was just the right amount of time. I talked with Tiki before booking and... More

We did this on a whim and it became one of my favorite Jackson Hole memories! The pilots are professional and relaxed and put you at ease - you are in very good hands. It is thrilling and peaceful all at the same time. I did the 4,000 ft flight and was just bowled over. I have never experienced anything... More

You just need to do this. Brat and Tiki were great and real professionals. It's far more relaxing than you'd imagine. If you every dreamed you could fly, well, dream no more. Well worth the money!
