What an unforgettable Ride!!
Our hot air balloon rides begin one hour before the sun rises. When you arrive at the launch site, the crew will lay the balloon out for cold inflation. Once Kevin has stood the balloon up, you will be invited on board for your pre-flight briefing and the adventure of a lifetime!

You'll ascend into the air and find the thrill of take-off replaced by the peacefulness of floating at the speed of the wind. Many people are surprised to find that there is no sense of motion or swaying in a balloon, since you are moving with the wind. Even people who profess a fear of heights find ballooning to be a peaceful experience. Kevin will point out any interesting landmarks and wildlife such as rabbits, deer, big horn sheep fox and coyotes that you may have the pleasure of spying from above. The crew will capture your flight on camera and provide you with your own picture files before you leave.

Once you have landed, you'll be regaled with the history of the post-flight champagne toast as you enjoy mimosas and a light brunch.
