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.

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.
