    Weather Dependent
    The winds must be under 12 mph in order to fly safely. Balloons cannot fly in thunderstorms or fog. If a flight must be canceled because of uncooperative weather conditions, the flight will be rescheduled for a mutually agreeable date. Always contact the Experience provider with any questions regarding weather conditions.
    What To Wear
    Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for weather conditions and closed toed shoes. A light jacket or sweater may be necessary as it is sometimes cooler in the morning.
    Can I bring a camera?
    Yes, you are welcome to bring still and video cameras along on your flight to capture the wonderful ballooning adventure.
    If I am afraid of heights could I enjoy a balloon flight?

    Absolutely! In fact most passengers have some fear of heights. Strangely enough there is no feeling like that of being on the edge of a tall building or the feeling you get on a Ferris wheel. Ballooning is calm, almost serene. If you can handle an airline flight, you will probably really enjoy ballooning.

    What's the temperature in the balloon?

    The temperature does not change much from the ground to the top altitude. You lose three degrees every 1,000 feet, so if is 75 degrees on the ground at 1,000 feet it will be 72 degrees.

    What does it feel like?

    Flying in a balloon is like nothing else you will ever experience!  You will become part of the wind gliding above the treetops. A ride in a balloon is a very smooth, peaceful, enjoyable experience.

    What is the balloon made of?
    Hot air balloons are made of a polyester or nylon material.
