We really enjoyed learning about your balloon ride experience! Not to mention how valuable it will be for future riders and for that we thank you! We're glad to have given you the experience of your life and look forward to flying with you again!
The ride was nice. Passengers and the pilot were an amusing bunch. I had an argument with them at first for a ride I couldn’t attend but they rectified that. My only disappointment is that the balloon did not go high enough. I though they...More

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! You are correct. Every flight is different in terms of the height and direction of our balloons. We go where the wind takes us and have to be careful of surrounding landmarks. Overall, we're happy...More

Hi! As we do not fly high enough for a change in temperature, you will just need to dress for the temperature of the day. You will, however, be outside for about 3 hours, so we recommend you dress as if you were to go for a hike. Dress in casual, comfortable clothing and please wear flat, enclosed footwear (no high heels or open toe shoes). You may also want to bring along a hat and sunglasses - and don't forget your camera!
