Today is our anniversary, what a fantastic way to celebrate - HOT AIR BALLOON!!! They only fly in the early early morning.... yes, it is not easy to get up soooo early and drive down to Perris. HOWEVER~ Totally worth it!!! The Weather: It is a little bit chili in the morning. But don't worry, the moment we arrive, hot... More

I recently went on a hot air balloon ride with this company and was unsatisfied with my trip and posted a yelp review. After this the company manager not only didn't apologize, he actually went as far as disparaging me on their facebook page (really, how old are you?) Basically they place a filming crew on our balloon, making a... More

MagicalPilot, Owner at Magical Adventure Balloon Rides, responded to this review

I'm not the manager Steve, I am the owner. I am embarrassed for you and sorry for Emma. On this version of your review you left out any mention of your celebrity appearance expectation. You created falsehoods about your experience and posted them publicly on multiple review websites. You insulted our staff and volunteers and attacked me personally when I... More

The crew and the pilots of the Magical Adventure Balloon Rides were all very nice and professional. While we didn't have much wind and we didn't travel very far, we were kept entertained by our pilot, Bill, who educated us about the local history and about ballooning in general. The company has an agreement with the South Coast Winery to... More

What better way to start the day than a hot air balloon ride?? Especially on my best friends Wedding day!!! The crew were all friendly and playful and so skilled at what they do. We took a nice ride over Temecula and when we landed we were treated to a Champagne toast! I HIGHLY recommend using this company. I will... More

I recently took my team on a balloon ride over Del Mar. Wonderful crew and amazing captain. These guys are great at landing on a specific spot. If you want to see the amazing houses in Rancho Santa Fe, go soon as the landing spots are getting fewer and fewer. The magical adventure balloon group has the best balloons in... More

What an amazing way to spend a morning. This hot air balloon experience will leave you with a myriad of exciting memories to gloat about and share with family and friends. You'll find yourself floating through air as the balloon gently takes off and glides over the beautiful Vineyards and community of Temecula. Your view is unencumbered and panoramic. During... More

Only Magical Adventures can blend romance, excitement and adventure better than 50 Shades of Grey. Definitely a must do activity but your "safe word" should be "Magical Adventure Balloon Rides and Helicopter Tours".

This has been on my bucketlist for a few years now. I saw a Groupon/Living Social deal and took my family (2 adults, 2 young teens) on this trip. You do have to be there early for check in (5:30am), so book a room nearby. When you get there you check in which includes getting weighed. So when they say... More

We went on our first balloon ride on 1/4. We had a great time. The pilot made you feel very safe and did a heck of a job negotiating the many wind drafts. What a great view! Champagne toast at the end. Wish the ride was longer. Would definitely do it again!
