HOT AIR BALLOONING WILL SEEM AND FEEL DISTINCT FROM ANY OTHER EXPERIENCE IN THE SKY.
Balloon rides take place in the early morning and late evening. Both scheduled times of day make sure that it won't be too hot and it's hard not to enjoy a view like that. For the night owls out there, the rides at sunset usually occur two or three hours before sundown.
ALL THINGS AROUND YOU, INCLUDING YOUR MEANS OF LIFT, IS AIR.
Once you are up in the air you will find yourself anywhere around 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. Weather permitting, a hot air balloon can travel all the way up to 10,000 feet. Now in case you are wondering, balloons don't truly adhere to a distinct course. What you can expect though is being up in the sky for around an hour, making it anywhere between 2 and 5 miles from where you launched.

The very first tale of man reaching the sky was in a balloon. From the first ride in the 1700's, hot air balloons have stood the test of time.
Much may have changed in the past centuries, but hot air balloons remain quite simple. A gigantic, vibrant balloon is overhead, filled with air heated by burners.
Exactly as there are all kinds of justifications for hot air ballooning, the balloons can be found in all shapes and sizes. Hot air balloons are rather flexible too, having the capacity to carry as much as 16 people in one go. Nevertheless, balloons will commonly accommodate 4, 8, 10, and 12 people at a time.
Balloons packed with hot air is a fairly unique way to fly, and the way it functions is in fact quite neat. You're able to get such a stunning view due to the fact that hot air is not quite as dense as cool air. Filling up a balloon with hot air hoists it right up over the cooler air up into the sky. Just like that, you're hovering on air.READ MORE
