Very enjoyable adventure. Its not a hot air balloon ride. The balloon is filled with helium and the basket is attached to a cable that allows you to stay in that area. Very nice views. Fun for all ages.

For the price this was a big bust, you just go straight up can't really see much, don't stay up very long then back down, not worth it.

Great way to see the fall foliage on the mountains! This is a nice gentle ride. Even for ones who are timid about heights will say it is a smooth ride. Once the balloon reaches 400 ft., the operator stops the balloon to give you...More

You go up, you go down. And your money goes in their pocket. The afternoon we went their "chief pilot" quit and a young man who was in training took us up. The view from our condo was much better.

Don't purchase tickets until that day they only fly up depending on weather. If it's to winding they will close down. If you go before 12 the tickets are half price. We went at 10 after they opened. Wasn't a lot of people there yet...More
