If I am afraid of heights could I enjoy a balloon flight?
Most 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.
Can I bring a camera?
Yes, feel free to bring a camera along, but do so at your own risk. Cameras must be stowed for landings.
