I'd completed a short balloon flight many years before and my husband had always wanted an opportunity to go ballooning. So when we saw a great Groupon deal to take to the skies with Ace High Ballooning, we jumped at the chance and am sure glad we did! Our first scheduled flight was postponed in August due to a pesky Tennessee pop-up thunderstorm. We were impressed with the level of safety that Ace High is known for and the attention to detail in checking all the weather forecasts. We really did not want to be a thousand feet in the air as dangerous gusts and lightening batter us about. As captain Bob said, "I like to fly the balloon and not have the weather fly it for me." Our schedules got busy but finally cleared for a perfectly clear fall day during the first weekend in November. A very chilly, frosty morning for a launch but we bundled up and enjoyed the heat of the burner. A totally smooth ride up and down, not even a bump for take off or landing. My husband can be a little prone to motion sickness but we had no issues here at all. We are locals and as soon as I detected we were flying near our home, Captain Bob was able to steer the balloon directly over our house. And it wasn't just Captain Bob's skills that make Ace High top notch, but we admired the ground crews professionalism as well. My husband is an amateur photographer and we got some amazing shots of the Williamson County fall foliage from the air. The end ceremony was a lot of fun as well - I won't give away the surprises. All and all, we want to go back and do it again and want Ace High to fly us!
