Good atencion but they canceled my trip from the weather they said. I tried to reschedule to Saturday and they were sold out. I couldn't get the experience so sad for that and Really disappointed because they should take the next day for people who made the reservation long time ago

Casey, JJ and the rest of the crew were fantastic and really helped make the experience unforgettable. While it was a bummer that we had to reschedule due to weather and our flight took off a little later than originally planned, the crew took the opportunity to teach a bit about how pressure systems move and how drastically different wind may be just 100 ft above the surface. Great experience overall, worth getting up at 0 dark thirty for it!

The balloon was found to be damaged as it was being blown up. The balloons should be examined before being brought to the site. In all fairness to the guests we slept like 3 hours and spent an entire morning in a van only to find that we were unable to do the flight. A different process needs to ve out in place, this was VERY DISAPPOINTING! Then I left a mask in the van that was a gift to me since I love pink and it was never found and returned to me.

The Hot Air Balloon Ride was an amazing experience! The meeting time is very early! Don't hang out late the night before. The champagne toast was a nice touch at the end. Plastic champagne flutes would have been the icing on the cake!

I booked this hot air balloon ride so my mother could check off one of her bucket list items and the experience was nothing short of amazing! She loved it. Our ride was with Jeff and we both were pleased with his knowledge and history of the hit air balloon he shared.
