Helicopter tour - Orlando, FL

 Living in Orlando there are tons of things to check out and do.  I always see the helicopters flying around but never really gave them too much thought - until I saw an ad to ride in one.  That piqued my interest and made me want to fly high in the sky.  I have flown in airplanes before, but the personal nature of the chopper made me yearn to try it out.  I grabbed one of my girlfriends and we were off on our adventure.

With so many different tours to choose from we decided on the one that would be closer to the center of all the action - International drive - this way we could see Sea World, Universal, Disney, etc.

We arrived at Air Florida Helicopter Charters and were greeted by their very friendly and energtic staff.  There is a large wall that lists all of the flights - what they cover and their time frames - I am not going to lie to you - it is not cheap - they do have a $20/per person flight - but it is only 3 minutes long - I know what you are thinking 3 minutes?, but you don't realize how long 3 minutes actually is until you are doing something for that period.  They offer such a wide range - I linked them here -

We choose - Tour #5 - this is a 12 minute ride - but it felt like we were up there for at least 30 minutes!!!!

Get your cameras ready for this one! Our tour #5 soars you high above Disney's E.P.C.O.T Center, Hollywood Studios, Downtown Disney, Disney's Sport Complex, Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Blizzard Beach Water Park, Planet Hollywood Themed Restaurant, Lake Buena Vista, Marriott's Orlando World Center Resort, Disney Resorts, Sea World, and Discovery Cove.

It was just as exciting and thrilling as I had anticipated it to be - I would suggest this for anyone that wants to live a little on the wild side -

the views are breath taking and you get to see just how much water there is in Central Florida.
