Take off on a 3 to 4 hour fun-filled balloon adventure, leaving one hour before sunrise. Enjoy a tranquil hour floating above the sights and attractions of the Orlando area.

This was my husband's 30th birthday present. It was an item we were checking off his bucket list. It was a very enjoyable time. We had previously booked twice prior and both our flights were cancelled due to weather. The cancellations actually put us at ease more as it was good to know how important safety is to the company.... More

I'm so glad I flew with this company. I was nervous but they quickly proved that they were knowledgeable, experienced and ready to entertain our group. The staff included us in the set-up and breakdown and helped make us really feel a part of the whole experience. The flight itself was incredibly stable, to my surprise, and very controlled. From...

From start to finish this was an amazing adventure. The entire staff made our safety and flight a top priority! On the day of our original flight we shuttled to the launch site and the crew studied in detail the weather as some rain had been popping up randomly.... they made the decision that we would have to reschedule.

Such a great experience! Was a little nervous at first, but the crew was amazing, relaxed and made the experience very fun! It may take a few cancellations, but it is definitely worth the wait, they make sure you go up on a beautiful day.

After a fantastic flight early morning over Orlando, what more could we ask for other than some additional photo's for our memory and scrap book. We decided to have the our photo taken by the team turned into a calendar as per their advertised service on their web site. It came 5 weeks later and it was no more than... More

Hello I am so glad you had a great time flying with us but I am disappointed that your post flight experience was not good.

Even my back problems couldn't scare me away from this experience! Don't mind saying though... it was a little rough to get on board. Maybe you could equip the baskets with some rope ladders. That sure would help!! But it was worth every effort! Great land and flight teams who were always there for us every inch of the way,... More
