So here I am in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina seeing my family after far too many months of not having done so. They retired down here last year and are keeping the kind of schedule that I am doing up in New York City and with my visit had lined out numerous activities that they themselves wanted to try. One the adventures was actually to ride in a scenic helicopter. Here is my Helicopter Adventure.
I had never been in a helicopter before so it was going to be interesting and yeah a little bit frightening since heights and I are just not something I easily deal with. As you can see the helicopters have a few different routes to take. The longer the tour, the more expensive the per person ride is going to be. I suggested that we take the shortest route since there was so much other stuff to do while I was here.
Everyone had to weigh in before the ride because the weight had to be in proper proportion. You didn’t want the helicopter to fly sideways now did you? I didn’t think so. Resultant of the weight-in, I sat in the back seats on the right-hand side. Hey here is our chopper.
Please enjoy the short video of our lift off into the skies of South Carolina.
Now here are a bunch of the photos I shot during this super short excursion.
That’s my Pop acting as the co-pilot today. I think this was his first time in a helicopter as well.
And we’re back on the ground and exciting the copter. Now it was time for the next tour group to be ferried over to the helicopter on the launch space for their own adventure. You had to go one at a time in case you wondered.
Every attraction has a gift shop nowadays and these teddies were very aviation centric. Nice stuff but I didn’t need any of it.
So there you have it. My Helicopter Adventures excursion. Not too shabby right? This is a pricey and short adventure to undertake if you should be debating about doing it but I will admit that it was fun. You can learn more about this brand of adventure via the official website and care of their Yelp entry if you wanted to see what other customers are thinking about it. Check below.
