    Motion Sickness

    I paid for three flyers. The Gulf was so rough that our daughter got dry-heaves ill. So just my wife and I flew. They wouldn't reduce my daughter's rate to just an observer.

    Too much money for the 10 minute ride

    I think the listing was a little misleading. The listing stated 1 hr on the boat and a 30 min parasail ride. My daughters were in the air for 10 minutes. Too pricey for a 10 minute ride.

    Sarah, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. The information on the listing and voucher says, 1 Hour duration on the boat, 6-9 minutes of flight time and to arrive 30 minutes early. We're sorry you must have misread these times when you booked and read your voucher. We hope the rest of your vacation was enjoyable. Thank you, TripShock! Director of Sales
