I never expected gliding to be so wonderful. Although we ended up lifting off about a half hour behind schedule, the ride was more than worth the wait. We circled inside a thermal and rose more than 2,000 feet to practically skim the underside of a cloud. The Foothills below the glider provide a picturesque backdrop as you ride on the currents of the wind. We went in a negative G-force dive to experience weightlessness, a truly sensation, as well as gliding past the Flatirons to provide a whole new view of them. In total, we soared for 45 minutes.
Yes, the office is disorganized, it was rather disappointing to have to wait for our ride, and expensive at $259 for two riders, but I would highly recommend this for a memorable experience in Boulder as long as you have a reasonable time buffer. A hat or sunscreen might be good as the glider's canopy is transparent and lets in lots of sun.
