Want to make a marriage proposal romantic and unique? Or, is there a special event you want to make memorable? Try a fun and exciting Hot Air Balloon Ride! You'll be the envy of everyone on the ground as you sail up high in a colorful Hot Air Balloon.

You and several others can climb inside the wicker basket for the ride of a lifetime. Your skilled crew chief will navigate the balloon while you absorb the breathtaking view and experience a floating on air feeling. The balloon will gently ascend and float between 500 and 1,000 feet, wherever the wind takes it. We travel above the treetops, and below the clouds for about an hour, covering 5 or 10 miles.

Once you are standing back on the earth, we celebrate the adventure with a champagne or fruit juice toast, as the balloon is being rolled up. The whole experience takes about three hours, fantastic hours you will remember for the rest of your life!

Your Balloon Ride

A Hot Air Balloon Ride has room for 1, 2, 3, 4 or more. First, our crew chief will take you or your friend(s) to the launch site where the beautiful balloon is being inflated. Then we gently ascend and float between 500 and 1,000 feet, wherever the wind takes us. We travel above the treetops and below the clouds for about an hour, covering 5 or 10 miles. On landing we celebrate with a champagne or fruit juice toast, an old French tradition, as the balloon is being rolled up. The whole experience takes about 3 hours. Three fantastic hours!

What To Expect

Everyone meets at a predetermined spot, usually one hour before sunrise. This is when the air is stable, and the winds are calm, ensuring a tranquil flight. After a cup of tea or coffee and a short flight briefing, you are welcome to help with the inflation, or stand back and take photographs.

Launching the Balloon

The actual launch of the Hot Air Balloon usually takes no more than half an hour after arrival at the launch site. The balloon and basket are carried in a trailer. The basket is laid on it's side, and the gaily colored fabric is pulled out of it's bag. Flying wires from the 'envelope' are attached, and the whole system is given a 'walk around' inspection by the pilot. The balloon is inflated, and the passengers get in. The balloon lifts off the ground effortlessly, and the wonderful experience begins!

You can experience the magic of a Hot Air Balloon Ride, or give someone special the gift of this unique experience.
