Item Description

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for TWO people to ride aboard the world famous "Wingfoot One" Goodyear Blimp. The Goodyear Blimp is located in Pompano Beach, Florida.


If you win this item, you will join a very elite club of aerial travelers, since this unique experience is a money-can't-buy opportunity!


You will take a flight at approximately 1000 feet aboard the Wingfoot One Goodyear Blimp (192 feet long, 59.5 feet tall and 50 feet wide). You will take a ride over the ocean and see a view of the maritime area, the coral reef system and sea life. The view at 1000 feet is absolutely breathtaking!


This is a "priceless" adventure that you'll be talking about for years to come!
Major events that previous Florida-based blimps have covered include: Super Bowls; ABC Monday Night Football; NCAA College Football; NASCAR in Charlotte, Daytona and Miami; NASDAQ Tennis at Key Biscayne, Florida; US Open Tennis, New York; Turner Sports, Fox Sports and ESPN Major League Baseball; NBA Finals and the Fort Lauderdale Air & Sea Show.
