A note from Hot Air Balloon Flight Over Black Hills
We are limiting the number of passengers per balloon and baskets are compartmentalized; creating more distance between parties. We ask that anyone who feels ill, has a fever, or shows symptoms stay at home. A balloon ride can wait for another day and we will be here to fly you.
