Meet up time was at 6:30am. Upon arriving at the hotel the Orlando Balloon Ride staff was outside directing people where to park and where to go inside. Everyone was gathered into the meeting room and all waivers were signed and collected. Safety cards were given out for review on how to enter and exit the basket. After being advised... More

The balloon ride was much calmer and more relaxed than anticipated. Beautiful scenery but you don’t see much of Orlando or any attractions. The staff was very entertaining and professional. We drank mimosa’s at the end of the flight and birthdays/anniversaries were recognized and toasted! One recommendation would be to rotate within the basket so all could experience the different...

It was not as good as I expected and I thought it too expensive. Finally, I don't recommend the ride for young people.

I never usually write reviews, but had to in this case! We went with Orlando Balloon Rides on 17th Feb for a gift for my mum's 60th birthday. It was amazing! We had a very peaceful, calm journey, and all the staff were excellent! They were very patient and friendly with my 5 yr old son, who was pretty nervous!... More

Four of us took a balloon flight with Orlando Ballon Rides. The group checks in at the Radisson Hotel then is transported to the launch field. It was a clear morning and we could see Disneyworld off in the distance. It is beautiful up there. We had to change our reservation dates a couple of times due to conflicts in... More

I have been to Florida twice, the first time I booked the flight, due to bad weather we couldn't fly. This time, we were successful, as someone earlier says, you'll never get the day you originally book. It was a very good morning. Early start as they fly before dawn, but as the sun rises you'll see all the sights... More

I have never put a review on before but this was so amazing I have to. My husband is scared off heights so this was not on his list of things to do. I spent a lot of time searching the best balloon company to go with and trip advisor was a huge help in making our decision. I am... More

Don't expect to go the day you book. These flights don't go if the weather aint just right. Also you should be somewhat mobile to climb in the basket. Other than that very relaxing and even educational. Champagne toast and free breakfast.
