Let Us Know


How many will be in the basket?

It depends on the size of the balloon. Most of our areas have several sizes of balloons, the largest capable of taking 16 persons plus the pilot. We bring out the best size to comfortably lift the number of people who book on a given day. If you have special requests regarding your group, please let us know at the time that you make your reservation so that we can accommodate you.

How long is the balloon flight?

The flight lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the wind speed and direction on the morning of your ride. However, the entire experience usually takes a few hours, so plan on spending additional time with us.

How high do you go?

That will depend upon conditions on the day of your flight. Your altitude will vary, but most flights take place between 1,000 and 3,000 feet. Winds permitting, some flights will occur at lower altitudes (treetop level) that provide a nice close up of the landscape below.

Does it get cold up there?

It is usually coolest in the morning when you meet your pilot. The actual ride can be quite toasty. We therefore recommend that you wear clothing in layers so you can adjust for the rising temperatures as the day progresses.

What should we wear?

Wear casual clothing and comfortable shoes appropriate for an outdoor adventure. Dress for the season and layer your clothing so that you can adjust for the warming temperatures as the morning progresses. The coolest you will be is on the ground. Once in flight, the burners tend to keep the basket nice and warm during the winter months. In the winter, appropriate clothing includes hats, gloves, boots and sunglasses. Summer attire includes long pants, sturdy shoes, sunscreen and sunglasses. No shorts, open-toed shoes or sandals please.

What should we bring?

Bring your camera and plenty of film. Video cameras are also permitted.

What about children?

Very small children and infants should wait until they are old enough to appreciate the ballooning experience, but may often be included in your group. Generally, most children are tall enough to see over the side of the balloon by around the age of 6.

What about special requests such as hot air balloon weddings?

Since we are committed to offering personalized ballooning adventures, our staff is available to assist you with special requests to make your adventures with us even more special. We regularly accommodate in-flight weddings and marriage proposals, for example. Gift certificates for special occasions are available. Call us to arrange for your special occasion, or purchase a Hot Air Balloon Ride Gift Certificate!
