Owner description: Soaring Adventures of America,Inc. was established in 1980. The company gives Balloon Rides, Glider and Skydiving Rides at 200 locations near 50 cities nationwide. We give almost 20,000 rides a year with about 5 complaints on Trip Advisor annually, usually related to weather or scheduling. But, 5 is too many. We encourage customers to contact us at our email address. We want to satisfy you. Balloon Rides are about an hour in the air and a total of 3 hours beginning to end. Glider rides are about 35 minutes and the whole skydiving experience, training,setup, launch and jump takes about 2 hours. Lots of fun, all around.

On Dec 4, 2014 you gave us this review: 5.0 /5 My wife and myself had a very nice adventure with the Glider ride in Florida on a very short notice when we returned from a cruise. They worked us in for the same day and we had a great time. It was her first time in a glider, but... More

With weather in November you never know, but we continued until we got it done. A birthday gift for my wife and an item to cross off her bucket list. Pilot was very friendly and personable as well as informative. We both had a wonderful ride and are considering doing it again.

It was a wonderful experience, from the first phone call I made to the ride itself, and the followup mailing to me of a beautiful paperweight. Thank you for an awesome ride!! My husband and I really enjoyed it. Sky Adventures in Oxford, Michigan. The owner was our pilot, first rate!! Champaign toast completed the fun.

This was a Mother's Day gift (purchased off of Groupon) from my husband. We winter in Arizona and chose Sedona due to the beautiful Red Rock scenery. First mistake, did not read reviews for Soaring Adventures and AZ Balloon Works, SEDONA. When making the reservation, I did ask as to departure area and was told somewhere between Sedona and Cottonwood.... More

I have been waiting for two years for my trip. There is always an excuse to not fly, the weather, the time, the month, etc. Every single first of the month I am calling making the appointment and nothing happens. The name of the pilot is Rowdy Smith and he doesn't even pick up his phone anymore. I might try... More

Here's how it works: you pay for a balloon ride through the main website and then you can reserve a balloon ride in many parts of the country through their (franchise?) alliances with other pilots. We contacted the Shrewsbury, MA pilot in early June and he said Labor Day Weekend was wide open, so we picked a Sunday afternoon. I... More

If you are a person who likes a solid plan before spending your money, do not tie up your money with this company. After calling the base office in CT about five times to answer every question I had, I was still weary about paying $400 for my boyfriend and I to book a hot air balloon ride, but we... More

The poor rating is only because this balloon ride adventure failed before it even got off the ground. The Balloon ride was planned as a birthday celebration surprise, but it quickly got so complicated that the recipient (me) found out about it before it could even be booked. Soaring Adventures of America is a national firm that does multiple thousands... More
