Owner description: Step back in time to a place of fantasy where you can soar with eagles. Our gentle flights will take you to a place that can only be experienced by hot air balloon. You will be delighted and surprised at the serenity and ease of which our massive balloons take to the skies. Hot air ballooning is a sport of elegance and beauty where you can be at one with nature. You will not believe how smooth the flight is, and, if you thought you were afraid of heights you should come see the world from our perspective. Many people have come with us only to be surprised that they were not frightened to be up in our hot air balloons. You will surprise yourself too. Let us be that avenue to step out of your world and into ours. If you ever have any questions as to which balloon company to experience simply ask one of the top hotels in Park City who they recommend. We fly for all the top resorts: Stein Eriksen Lodge, The Montage, St. Regis, Hotel Park City, and the Waldorf Astoria, to name a few. Come join Morning Star Balloons on one of our daily flights over the majestic mountains of Park City, Utah. You'll be glad you did.

What a day! These guys are great. They made sure we all had a great time and worked with us through a weather day to make sure that we had the opportunity to experience a hot air balloon. We all came back the next day for a great flight over Park City! Already working on round two!

Booked a balloon trip in Park City, Utah. We were pretty excited about this as a really cool experience. On the day we were to do it we got weathered out, which really upset us. We understood weather happens and after our disappointment waned we understood it was about our safety and the safety of the balloon operators. Luckily they... More

I own a company that addresses activities on your bucket lists. On MY bucket list was to ride in a hot air balloon. Well I got that and more with this company. The pilot was so witty and fun our group couldn't stop laughing. The scenery was breathtaking and the safety taken for a smooth ride and landing was impeccable.... More

19 of my best friends had the best time ever. We booked a private event and we had perfect weather. The pilot was awesome and the ground crew was organized. We have already booked a second private event because we are hooked.

Had an excellent experience with Morning Star. I was with a combined group of skydivers and passengers and we had an amazing time. Our pilot Bill really knew his business and gave everyone a great ride. We liked it so much we've already scheduled a follow-up event.

I called to make a reservation and they told me they were wide open. Then when my daughter called to use her certificate bought on KSL deal. He booked the trip but at the end she said she had a certificate. He called the night before to say he miscounted and could not take her group. We tried again and... More

I never even a got a ride because he wouldn't honor my groupon. I have been trying to go for two years. He just keeps pushing me off by saying he is all booked for the whole entire month of September! He is a liar and a terrible man. Use someone else.

I am trying to do all that I can to honor all of the Groupon vouchers. I did have a large number of people book late in the season and we did our best to fly as many as we could. With limited space on our balloons we did the best we could to accommodate as many as possible. We... More

This past Sunday my husband and I had reservations with Morningstar Balloons. We arrived at the lovely Hotel Park City at 6:45am for a 7:00am departure. I called the Morningstar office at 7:10 and left a message asking them to call me. I left a message on their cell phone number at 7:30. We left the hotel at 7:40. I... More

I am very sorry that we were not able to get together. I made several calls to a phone number that was listed on the reservation sheet with no answer. I always ask for a phone number that they can be reached at while in the Park City area. In this case I was not able to reach this party... More

I honestly don't know how good their actual balloon service is. I'm sure it's great. The problem is that I paid for a balloon ride but then they said that they were full and couldn't get me in this year. Of course, I didn't get my money back. To top it off they gave me nothing but attitude on the... More

As I looked over the reviews. I was surprised to see a number of negative responses. The balloon ride was on my wife's bucket list and initially I was not so sure. The ride made me a believer. Great crew, great ride, great experience. We originally scheduled a year before but the weather forced a re-schedule. For ballooning the weather... More
