The Neon Night Flight Spectacular will take guests on an unforgettable exploration through the history and splendor of the iconic sights that Las Vegas is known for - the neon lights.

The journey begins with luxury transport from most Las Vegas hotels to our VIP terminal. Guests will board an EcoStar helicopter for a memorable flight over the sparkling lights of the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown. They'll capture incredible photo moments as they soar high above top attractions such as the Fountains of Bellagio, Eiffel Tower Las Vegas, High Roller Observation Wheel, SkyPod at The Strat, and Allegiant Stadium.

After the helicopter tour, guests will take a walk down memory lane on a 45-minute guided tour at The Neon Museum. The Main Boneyard showcases more than 250 Vegas signs spanning the decades, with nearly two dozen reilluminated and the others dramatically lit from the ground. The guided tour gives guests insights into the inspirations and technology behind the art of neon sign design and how the signs chronicle the fascinating and unique history of Las Vegas – its people, properties, and communities – from the 1930s to the present day.

The night concludes with a tour of the museum’s North Gallery and its immersive 360-degree audiovisual spectacular, Brilliant! Jackpot, an augmented reality experience that reilluminates unrestored signs and incorporates archival video and an iconic soundtrack to transport guests directly into Las Vegas’ history.

Papillon Helicopters provides hotel pick-up and transport to our executive Las Vegas terminal for the helicopter portion of the tour and then transfers guests to the Neon Museum. At the conclusion of the Neon Museum tour, guests will be responsible for arranging their own return transport. You’ll be in the heart of burgeoning Cultural Corridor, about 3 miles from the famous Fremont Street Experience.
