- Fly over one of the world’s great engineering marvels
- Perfect way to see the beautiful Lake Mead
This is one of many experiences included in this collection!
The Hoover Dam is a slice of American history, as iconic now as it was when it was first built. This masterpiece of engineering took thousands of workers five years to build back in the 1930s, and played a part in the rise of Las Vegas. It provides more than 4 billion Mw of hydroelectric power annually, forming the huge Lake Mead. Over a million people visit every year, but you’ll dodge the crowds with this excellent Las Vegas experience.
At first, cruise over the Lake Mead, relax and let the gorgeous scenery drift leisurely by. Then take a memorable helicopter flight that takes you across the lake and towards the endlessly impressive dam. Some 500m above the surface, the views must be seen to be believed, and you’ll marvel at this world-famous construction. A great day out if you need a break from Vegas.
