From the professional website and social media, to the welcoming and comforting greeting, and all through our first balloon ride experience, Apex was a well-run, thoughtful, safe, and memorable experience. We are grateful and highly recommend Apex!
We loved, loved this Hot Air Balloon Ride.

I was so scared to try this, I am so afraid of heights! The basket is very comfortable, you are not packed in and have plenty of room to turn around and be comfortable. The other thing that surprised me is how smooth the ride...More

Unless you book a private trip, there could be others. If you go at an empty morning time, you could end up lucky like my fiancé and I with just us and Jon. If you ask Jon, he can give you a better idea of the busyness of the time you're looking.
