If you are wondering what to do in San Diego that will really get your blood pumping, look no further. A thrill ride in a biplane high above the city will be more than enough to get your endorphins flowing as you twist and turn through the air like never before.
San Diego Sky Tours offers 30 minute and 50 minute flights that begin as a scenic tour of San Diego, letting you get a bird’s eye view of some of the area’s most popular landmarks. But these are no ordinary flights, you are onboard a biplane that can maneuver through the air unlike any aircraft you’ve ever boarded. The 30 minute option is the Biplane Thrill Ride which takes you into the sky, darting and making quick turns before returning you safely back to solid ground. One of the 50 minute flights is the Aerobatic Adventure which takes you over the bay, performing barrel rolls and loops before flying low above beachfront homes. The other 50 minute option is meant for the truly adventurous, the Simply Crazy Aerobatics flight is designed to give you the experience of being a true fighter pilot, and feel some true G-force as you do some evasive maneuvering during an imaginary dogfight and enjoy one of the top things to do in San Diego.
Tours start as low as $235 and the price varies by the type of flight you take. Flights take off daily from Montgomery Field and you have the option of renting a GoPro setup to show off your adventurous side to friends and family when you return home. There is free parking at the airfield and flight suits, goggles, and headsets are included in the price. Of course, bringing some extra cash to tip the talented pilot who provided you with the thrill of a lifetime is not a bad idea.
Funbassadors can schedule a date and time for one of the three flights, and although the planes only hold one person at a time, you and a Funseeker can take off in separate planes and high five one another once you’re back on the ground before heading off to grab a drink nearby and enthusiastically recount your adventures. Funseekers can purchase a FunGig where all the preparations have been made and a knowledgeable local who knows plenty of fun things to do in San Diego and can point out some nearby hotspots to visit afterwards.
