  • Enjoy the serenity of floating over the magnificent Ohio countryside with nothing but the occasional blast of the burners to disturb the peace! The feeling is like none other in the world.

    Your experience will begin at the launch site where you'll be greeted by a flurry of activity - the hum of fans, the vibrant colors of the inflating balloons, and the roar of burners as your pilot and crew prepare your flight. You are even invited to participate, should you be so bold! Once safely loaded into the basket, your FAA-certified pilot will heat up the balloon and, before you know it, it will be be time for lift-off!

    As the balloon gently lifts into the air, you'll enjoy unbeatable views of the Ohio countryside from an entirely new perspective. For approximately 45-60 minutes of flight time, you will get to feel the gentle breeze in your hair as you enjoy the serenity of engine-less flight. Along the way, your pilot is happy to answer any questions you may have about the balloon or surrounding scenery. 

    Upon landing, you and your fellow passengers will be treated to a traditional champagne toast to cap off a truly unforgettable journey!

    1. Will there be other passengers on my flight?

      Likely, yes! This hot air balloon flight is for up to 4 passengers. You may be combined with another group if booking less than 4. If you need to book a flight for a group larger than 4 passengers, please contact Cloud 9 Living directly at 866-525-6839 for pricing.

    2. Can I help inflate the balloon?

      Absolutely! It is encouraged for passengers to help with the inflation and deflation of the balloon. It is a huge part of the experience, after all!

    3. Is it cold in the balloon?

      Temperatures during your flight will not vary greatly from the temperature on the ground. As long as you dress appropriately for the weather, you will be plenty warm. Layers are recommended so you can adjust your temperature as needed. 

    4. When is the best time to fly?

      Hot air balloon rides are extremely weather dependent. Typically, the best times to fly are just after sunrise or a few hours before sunset. Though flights are available year-round, the most favorable months are May-October.

    5. How safe is ballooning?

      Hot air ballooning is considered one of the safest forms of flying. The balloons comply with all FAA regulations and undergo frequent inspections. In fact, your provider is also a Certified Repair Station for hot air balloons - you can be sure the balloons are in top shape!
