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. « less

My husband and I took our first hot air balloon ride today. It was a 50th wedding anniversary gift from our children. WOW!!! It was an outstanding adventure. Our pilot Daren and his assistant Spike were true professionals and artists. They handled the balloon with ease and confidence. It was always safe and very exhilarating. We can't wait to do... More

I can't give the whole experience 5 stars because the communication with the company is beyond horrible. I called and called, left messages (for weeks) to no avail. When I finally actually got them to answer my call the day I wanted was sold out. I settled for the day after my anniversary. but then I never heard from the... More

I can't believe any bad review that is posted about Morning Star Balloons after the wonderful time Daren Wilde showed my clients. I am a travel agent in Florida who sent 22 people to him for a balloon ride and they are still talking about how great Morning Star Balloons is. Daren was easy to work with, he was flexible... More

My wife and I were so excited for this, but it turned out awful. There were three couples so they split me and my wife up and put us in different parts of the balloon. We objected, but the balloon operator condescendingly told us to be quiet and do what we were told or we'd put the whole flight in... More

I had made an reservation with them in May. Then I needed to change our reservation and they were impossible to get a hold of. Finally the day before our scheduled ride the owner calls and asks if we can switch days. Hello, I'd tried 4 times in 2 weeks to get ahold of them to change it and they... More

We do the best that we can to get all people on our rides as quickly as we can. We do have limited space on our flights and room is at a premium. We do offer our rides on a first come first served basis and despite many efforts and quite a few phone calls to accommodate we were not... More

Daren at Morning Star bailed us out of a bit of a predicament for an event and we ended up with a fantastic balloon ride for two to help our foundation. Thank you Morning Star!

My apologies for the bad experience and the unnecessary treatment. It is truly my strongest wish and desire for all to have the experience of a lifetime and fully enjoy what it is that we love. Wild Bill does have a little bit of a dry sense of humor and he must have been off his game that day. He... More

I'm having a hard time reviewing this. Its been on my bucket list for years so I may have imagined it to be so much more magical than it was, and I want to be fair, but in reality I just don't think it was that great. They crammed 10 of us (plus pilot) in a basket make for 7,... More

That is one of the lines the pilot used on me, it made me chuckle. I had never been ballooning before and decided to try it out. It was great, amazing views, and great atmosphere. All the workers made up feel very safe and looked like they had been doing this for a very long time. I can't wait to... More

There are certain things inherent in going up in a balloon -- you're high up in a small basket, which can be a bit scary, especially with kids. But if you're looking for a ballooning company to use, I would certainly recommend this one. Our pilot was very experienced and inspired complete confidence -- as well as being personable and...
