A New Ride at the North Florida Fair

By  | 

The big attraction is a helicopter tour of downtown Tallahassee.

For the first time the fair is offering this over the top experience.

The four minute flight takes you high in the sky, offering a panoramic view of the Capital and Doak Campbell Stadium.

Riders even got the chance to see a brush fire miles away.

"It was fun. It was my daughter’s first ride in a helicopter. They took us up around downtown, a beautiful flight, real smooth, and they did a good job," said James May, who enjoyed the ride with his daughter.

Falcon Air Link is charging $20 for the flight. Riders said it was well worth it.

The helicopter operates until 11 p.m. each night.
