Weather Dependent:
This experience is weather dependent. Ballooning is strictly a fair weather-light wind activity. Generally a balloon launch is not possible when the wind speed exceeds 10 MPH. This is why balloon flights occur around dawn or a couple of hours prior to sunset when winds are usually lightest and the air is the most stable. If weather conditions cause a postponement of your flight, the experience provider is happy to reschedule the experience.

What to Wear:
We recommend that you dress as if you were going for a hike. The temperature during the flight is basically the same as it is on the ground. Most of the flight will be below 1,000 ft., and the temperature is only 3 degrees cooler even at that altitude. Please do not wear sandals or open toed shoes. Athletic shoes and socks are perfect. The propane burner system which creates the heat for our hot air balloon is located above your head, so a hat is suggested.

Booking Information:
For this experience, it is recommended to request bookings at least 1 month in advance for weekends and 2 weeks in advance for weekdays.

Once you have scheduled a date and received a booking confirmation, no refunds will be given. Rescheduling is allowed up to 14 days prior to your experience, failure to appear on your booked date or to reschedule at least 14 days prior to your booked date will result in the loss of the value of your experience.

  1. If I am afraid of heights could I enjoy a balloon flight?
    Absolutely! In fact most of the passengers have some fear of heights. Strangely enough there is no feeling like that of being on the edge of a tall building or the feeling you get on a Ferris wheel. Ballooning is calm, almost serene. If you can handle an airline flight, you will probably really enjoy ballooning.
  2. Can I bring a camera?
    Yes, you are welcome to bring a camera along, but do so at your own risk. Cameras must be stowed for landings.
  3. Are there any weight restrictions?
    For safety reasons there is a maximum weight limit of 750 pounds per balloon.
