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. Our Product Management team handpicks top-rated experience providers, removing the guesswork for you and ensuring your peace of mind.
Maximum Participants
Up to 4 per balloon.
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?

This is a private flight for two passengers only. Take a significant other for a romantic date or a friend for an outing to remember... it's totally up to you!

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!
