Took my wife for her birthday on a Hot Air Balloon. Shared the flight with another couple. We lucked out on very nice weather sunny and low winds. The pilot/owner Ken is very skilled and took us right over the tree tops then high over the lake. We saw wildlife (eagles, hawks and cranes) on our trip. Can't say every... More

A hot air balloon ride has been on my bucket list for quite awhile and so while we were in Denver celebrating 20 years of marriage, we went ahead and took the plunge. It was an exhilarating experience! Ken and his crew were very friendly and we had a great trip. :-) Thanks so much Ken and crew!

We went with 2 others and had a great time. Ken was great with me being nervous and I soon calmed down. Super gentle landing, amazing views from 1800ft and honestly felt much less scared than on a cliff edge or tall building. It's very serene and calm. You can help out if you want. Not inexpensive but a great... More

Went on a hot air balloon ride with Rocky Mountain Hot Air in March 2014 whilst on an 8 week trip around the United States with my now fiancé. This was easily one of the best experiences of our trip, and the crew was amazing. We started early and helped set up a little but were a little too busy... More

I can't say enough good things about Rocky Mountain Hot Air. The launch site at Chatfield State Park provides some tremendous scenery with the lake and foothills in the foreground and the Rockies and Denver off in the distance. Ken and his crew were tremendously friendly, helpful, and professional and thoroughly explained each part of the ride. Ken's description of... More

Went on a hot air balloon ride with my wife and two daughters on our Spring Break trip. Meet up at the park early in the morning which was great. The ride was nice, but compared to the previous one we took in Florida it didn't really stack up. You never leave the park from which you take off in... More

My husband surprised me with a hot air balloon ride for our 21st anniversary! We had a wonderful time and would recommend this to any and everyone! Really felt like we got the whole experience! And, unlike other companies I've heard about, it was just us and the pilot in the balloon, making it even more memorable! Thank you for... More

From the moment I emailed Ken at Rocky Mountain Hot Air, I knew I had chosen a winner! He was so prompt in responding, and in the days leading up to our trip communicated often to ensure we had directions, weather updates and addressed all of our concerns about hot air balloon flights and altitude sickness. Felt very reassured that... More

Thank you Ken!!! First of all, it's pretty tricky to surprise people - sending them on a hot air balloon ride since you have to be there at 5:30 am, you live 45 minutes from the launch site, and if the weather does not cooperate, you will be turning around and going home. What do you tell them? Breakfast in... More

I loved this balloon ride, even though I AM AFRAID OF HEIGHTS!!! I asked myself how I could have ever thought that a hot air balloon ride would be even slightly fun----but it was FANTASTIC!! Ken Tadolini and the the staff at Rocky Mountain Hot Air are professional and friendly. They put me at ease from the start. They are... More
