The Chicago Helicopter Experience Fireworks Tour gives you a front row seat for the spectacular fireworks celebrations presented by the City of Chicago every Wednesday and Saturday between Memorial Day and Labor Day. You’ll glide high above Navy Pier, the sky below bursting with light and color, for a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. This dramatic display is set against the breathtaking night skyline.
Before the fireworks start, you’ll soar over the lighted city, seeing Chicago’s legendary beauty take on a magical aspect as millions of shimmering lights set the city aglow.
You’ll depart from our downtown heliport, just minutes from the “Loop.” Before your flight, enjoy fun facts on the history of Chicago and “pilot an aircraft” from the interactive flight simulator in our 6,000 square-foot guest center.
Then, take off! Marvel at the sparkling lights adorning the city as you glide through the night sky aboard one of our state-of-the-art helicopters. Catch Buckingham Fountain’s glimmering lights and the shifting colors of the Pritzker Pavilion.Take in the majestic sight of glittering buildings along the lakefront.
As you glide across the city your pilot will share facts and folklore that bring Chicago to life. Then you’ll head towards Navy Pier to take in the fireworks show and be amazed all over again.
Availability for Fireworks Tours is extremely limited.
