$105 for a Helicopter Ride for Two (Logan)

$105 for a Helicopter Ride for Two with One Photograph and Two T-Shirts from Mountain Ridge Helicopters (Up to $253 Value) LINK Select Ogden as your city!

Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Go toe-to-beak with our winged companions with today's Groupon: for $105, you get a helicopter ride for two with a photograph and two T-shirts from Mountain Ridge Helicopters in Logan (up to a $253 value).

Mountain Ridge Helicopters' experienced pilots steer pairs through the air over notable landmarks during the Big Blue View tour, a 15-minute sweep of Logan's skies. From the leather-seated cabin of a Robinson R44 Raven II, couples can lark through the celestial ceiling, recapture the weightless feeling of falling in love, and reminisce about their previous lives as pterodactyls. Headsets hug passengers' ears and whisper secrets of the panorama, as relayed by the pilot. From wide windows, guests can inventory the peaks of the Wellsville Mountain Range, the snowcaps of the Wastach Range, and the frenzied smoke signals of exam-stricken freshmen roaming the Utah State University campus.

Propelled passengers can snap shots of the scenery, including USU's Old Main tower and football stadium, and the Logan Mormon Temple. Mountain Ridge Helicopters captures each couple's trip with a photograph taken with the aircraft, available a couple days following the flight. Sky pilgrims also receive a T-shirt to fit over burgeoning wings. Helicopter rides aren't stopped by rain or shine but can be rescheduled in the event of icing.
