Enjoy the serenity of floating over the magnificent Ohio countryside with nothing but the occasional blast of the burners to disturb the peace!
Enjoy the serenity of floating over the magnificent Ohio countryside with nothing but the occasional blast of the burners to disturb the peace! The feeling is like none other in the world.
Your experience will begin at the launch site where you'll be greeted by a flurry of activity - the hum of fans, the vibrant colors of the inflating balloons, and the roar of burners as your pilot and crew prepare your flight. You are even invited to participate, should you be so bold! Once safely loaded into the basket, your FAA-certified pilot will heat up the balloon and, before you know it, it will be time for lift-off!
As the balloon gently lifts into the air, you'll enjoy unbeatable views of the Ohio countryside from an entirely new perspective. For approximately 45-60 minutes of flight time, you will get to feel the gentle breeze in your hair as you enjoy the serenity of engine-less flight. Along the way, your pilot is happy to answer any questions you may have about the balloon or surrounding scenery.
Upon landing, you and your fellow passengers will be treated to a traditional champagne toast to cap off a truly unforgettable journey!
