They are many people here writing reviews about not getting a ride and not getting their money back either. WARNING please AVOID this place. They charged me $420 and they didn't give me a ride. They told me they put me on standby list but I read reviews about people who were in

We were so sorry that you missed your flight on July 4th. We had those seats available for you and they were empty when we flew our balloon that morning. We know that things happen, but also turned away a lot of passengers for those seats. According to our policy, which you confirmed, we do not offer refunds for no-shows. We did offer you a stand-by for a future flight to be understanding in these trying times. The flight was beautiful that day and we wish that you had made it, as you confirmed over the phone with me the day before that you would.

A hot air balloon ride has been a dream of mine for years, but I didn't think my husband would ever agree to join me. For our 30th anniversary, he suggested we try it out. We decided to splurge on the private balloon ride for two and after reading the reviews, we chose

Ballooning is beautifully done by Captain Dave and his crew. Soaring high above the earth in a state of peaceful contemplation was just one of the benefits of this experience. The mimosas and breakfast that followed were delightful perks.
