Experience Provider Info
Complete information for your Experience Provider, including contact information, will be included on your booking confirmation email once you or your gift recipient have scheduled the experience.

Maximum Participants
Up to 4 per balloon. For parties larger than 4 passengers, please contact Virgin Experience Gifts directly at 866-525-6839 for pricing.
Family and friends may watch the launch from the field. Seating is limited so it is advisable to bring your own chairs.
Weather Dependent
This experience is extremely weather dependent. Generally, a launch is not feasible when the wind exceeds 8 mph or if there are storms or low visibility within a 50-mile radius. Always contact the experience provider with any questions regarding weather conditions. Conditions are typically most favorable for May-October flights.
What To Wear
Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for weather conditions. Long pants are recommended for all flights and layers are advised during winter flights (rather than one warm garment). No high heels, sandals or open toed shoes.
Will there be other passengers on my flight?

Likely, yes! This hot air balloon flight is for up to 4 passengers. You may be combined with another group if booking less than 4. If you need to book a flight for a group larger than 4 passengers, please contact Virgin Experience Gifts directly at 866-525-6839 for pricing.

Can I help inflate the balloon?

Absolutely! It is encouraged for passengers to help with the inflation and deflation of the balloon. It is a huge part of the experience, after all!

Is it cold in the balloon?

Temperatures during your flight will not vary greatly from the temperature on the ground. As long as you dress appropriately for the weather, you will be plenty warm. Layers are recommended so you can adjust your temperature as needed. 

When is the best time to fly?

Hot air balloon rides are extremely weather dependent. Typically, the best times to fly are just after sunrise or a few hours before sunset. Though flights are available year-round, the most favorable months are May-October.

How safe is ballooning?

Hot air ballooning is considered one of the safest forms of flying. The balloons comply with all FAA regulations and undergo frequent inspections. In fact, your provider is also a Certified Repair Station for hot air balloons - you can be sure the balloons are in top shape!

Customer Reviews

This experience has a customer rating of 5
based on 1 reviews.
Excellent experience! Captain and his crew from General Breeze Hot Air Balloons are very knowledgeable, great personalities and the hospitality was outstanding! I recommend booking directly through the hot air balloon company rather than virgin experience. I am not pleased with Virgin experiences but no complaints whatsoever for the hot air balloon company. Great people and awesome experience. One thing to take note on is, they have no restrooms on site so I recommend stopping before arriving at the hanger. :) I will definitely do this again! We did the sunrise lift off and it was beautiful! Travel distance was approximately 10 miles and we were in flight around an hour. Overall experience took approximately 3 hours.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts

I am truly sorry that we could not meet your expectations, but I do hope we have the chance to make it up to you in the future! I am so pleased that you found our partners to be so wonderful as we think they are equally as great! Thank you for your great tips and glad you could enjoy a beautiful sunrise flight! We appreciate you sharing your review with us as we appreciate your feedback! Best, Brooke
