You can even delight in an aerial look at the city by hot-air balloon or take in the same view at higher speeds.



Paddle on the beautiful Colorado River to Emerald Cave’s clear glowing water. This will be a 4.5-mile roundtrip.



We offer targets out as far as 500 yards. Feel the excitement of shooting at more than 30 steel and exploding targets. We offer the best of both worlds: outdoor shooting with the comfort of indoors from our exclusive climate-controlled firing lines. YOU CHOOSE from more than 80 guns, including fully automatic, sniper, large-caliber weapons and even iconic Western guns. No shooting experience? No problem. You will have one-on-one instruction from a friendly instructor on each gun. FREE videos and photos! FREE exploding targets & FREE shuttle transportation!



This scenic hot-air balloon ride is an exhilarating way to see the scenery outside of Las Vegas. Soar with unobstructed 360-degree views of the stunning mountain and desert ranges. Flying in Pahrump, outside of Las Vegas, allows us to climb as high as 10,000 feet, making this one of the highest flights available! No two flights are ever the same, with flight direction 100% determined by the day’s wind. An approximately 1-hour flight will create memories to last a lifetime. Once safely on the ground, enjoy a traditional Champagne toast and receive your commemorative flight certificate signed by your expert pilot. Join us for your adventure of a lifetime today!



Ever imagined soaring from the top of a mountain with an eagle’s eye view?

You can book a private experience by purchasing all 12 spaces or be added to a tour that is running.
