This was one of the coolest things I have ever done. it was a gentle lift off and extremely pleasant. The team was fun and knowledgeable. The pilot was also terrific and explained in detail all we were about to embark upon. Well worth the money & time!!!

Billy and his crew impressed me with their knowledge and experience. We were confident that their skills would offer us a breathtaking experience, and they did. Billy made us comfortable from the moment we arrived at our launch location. During the flight he gave us a thorough understanding of the effects of wind direction and altitude on our balloon.

This is a must do! By most people's standards it is expensive, but it is worth every penny. The staff were all very nice, Steve was a trip. We were in the air for about an hour. This is with other people, but the host was very good at breaking the ice between everyone. Me and my husband weren't in... More

This operation is top notch - the crew and pilot were very engaging and made us feel very comfortable. They were very professional, informative and seemed to genuinely enjoy what they were doing. Great people,... More

A wonderful ballooning experience!! We had 3 cancellations due to a rare bad weather week, but the staff (Greg) were great in re-organizing our trip. 4th time lucky, we got to experience a fantastic, peaceful balloon ride on a beautiful day where we could see 100miles away to the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Our pilot, Tommy was a great... More

I had to reschedule two times and Greg was more than accommodating. My bf and I drove two hours from Arvada and were able to find the place easily. Steve was hilarious and was able to break the ice between all the couples riding in the same basket as us. The ride was surreal and peaceful and Greg was very... More
