2.  Go SO FAST on a San Francisco Rocket Boat! Get blown away as you and your little ones hold on for the most exhilarating ride of your life. Stunning views and a classic Rock ‘n Roll soundtrack add to the 30-minutes of non-stop fun.

1. See the city from the sky on a San Francisco helicopter tour! You know this is what you always wanted as a child. Give your children a view they just can’t get anywhere else by scheduling a helicopter flight for them. Granted, it’s not the cheapest, but it will be a forever memory.
