Tornado Tour Inforamtion

Our tours are open to anyone 18 years and older.  We will accept 16 and 17 year olds with a parent or guardian accompanying them.  If you suffer from any medical conditions, such as heart problems, blood pressure problems, diabetes, or motion sickness, please consult with your doctor before booking your tour. If you are in a condition that prevents you from getting in and out of the veichle quickly or sitting comfortably in the veichle, the tour may present some hardship for you as well.  We will do our best to accommodate everyone. Please contact us about your needs and together we can determine if a storm chase tour is suitable for you.  An $750 deposit per person is due to reserve your seat.  Balance is due upon arrival. 

Safety is of the utmost importance on our tours, and any conduct detrimental to the other patrons and/or the company may result in your removal from the tour.   If we encounter other people who need medical assistance, whether due to a tornado, traffic accident, or any other reason, it is our policy that we will stop and assist them to the best of our ability. Unfortunately, this may result in missing the next storm. While we will make every effort to see as many severe storms as possible, we believe that providing emergency assistance to those in need is our first responsibility as storm chasers.  

Please pack lightly. Because of cargo restrictions, we are forced to limit everyone to one medium-sized suitcase and a personal item such as a backpack or purse. We will do our best to accommodate as much luggage as possible, but please understand that space is limited. We use 15 passenger vans or SUVs and limit the number of people per veichle so each person can have a window seat.  Vans are limited to six passengers and SUVs are limited to four passengers. Most hotels will have laundry facilities available. We recommend you pack the following:

    Clothing for both hot and cooler weather – rain and wind can quickly make weather conditions much cooler!
    Long Pants
    Rubber-soled shoes

    MP3 player or other personal music device, with headphones
Chargers for electronic devices

On the road, we will do our best to get the group to an area where severe weather is possible. Unfortunately there are some days, even during storm season, when severe weather just isn’t going to happen. On these days, we will travel to any nearby tourist attractions. In addition, some days will be “travel days” where we will drive all day to get to the next day’s target.

Some of the sites we visit include: the National Severe Storms Laboratory and Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado and other weather-related facilities, the Twister Museum in Wakita, OK, Cadillac Ranch and Big Texan in Amarillo, Palo Duro Canyon in Texas, the world's largest ball of twine in Kansas, Chimney Rock National Monument in Nebraska and Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota.  And, there are the miles of beautiful prairie landscapes, and skyscapes, that every day of the tour offers!

At the end of each chase day, we head for a clean, comfortable hotel where guests can recharge for the next day's chase.  Lodging is paid for by Wild West Tours during the tour.  All meals are paid for by guests.   Tour fees do not include your travel to and from the staging hotel, so please plan accordingly.

If you will email your flight information to us, we will provide transportation from the airport to the hotel.  If you are unable to make the tour you have reserved please contact us.  When you contact us, we will apply the non refundable $750 deposit towards the price of a future tour of your choice, depending on availablity.  An additional deposit will still be needed for the reschuedlued tour.
