Balloon rides take place in the early morning and late evening. Both reserved times of day assure that it won't be excessively heated and it's hard not to enjoy a view like that. The rides available around sundown occur two to three hours prior to sundown, which is a nice choice if you aren't an early bird.
AS YOU ARE ARE LIFTED INTO THE AIR, YOUR CRAFT IS ONE WITH THE WIND.
Once you are flying you will find yourself anywhere between 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. In some cases, if the weather is just right, your pilot may take you up as high as 10.000 feet. Now should you find yourself wondering, balloons don't absolutely adhere to a specific course. What you can expect though is being up in the sky for about an hour, making it somewhere between 2 and 5 miles from where you launched.
We exclusively offer the best for you, so you don't have to worry about a thing. Our pilots are specialists, guaranteed. Every single qualified professional partnering with us must be in possession of a Pilot's Certificate and license through the Federal Aviation Administration.

The very first story of man reaching the sky was in a balloon. Having remained all this time from a long time ago in the 1700's, this has become a lasting adventure.
Though the times have definitely evolved, hot air balloons are still a straightforward endeavour. Full of hot air by burners, the balloon just over you is a bigger-than-life sight to behold.
Just like there are all types of reasons for hot air ballooning, the balloons appear in all shapes and sizes. Hot air balloons are rather accommodating too, being able to carry as much as 16 people in one trip. Having said that, balloons will typically accommodate 4, 8, 10, and 12 people at a time.
As the balloons themselves are raised by means of hot air, it's good to understand how that works. The reason you will get to enjoy a peaceful and wonderful view from up above is simply because cool air is denser than hot. Filling a balloon with hot air hoists it right up through the cooler air up into the sky. Thanks to this you can literally move on air.READ MORE
