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

This company has terrible customer service. They yelled at my girlfriend who is very soft spoken, she was trying to book a date as she had been trying to for months. We paid for a Groupon and she left voice mail after voice mail and never received a call back. When she caught them in the office they yelled at... 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

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
