Firstly, I should say that I am scared of heights and was apprehensive about this flight - but there was absolutely no need for concern. At no time did I feel scared. The walls of the basket are quite high and made me feel completely...More

Thank you so much to Lou and his crew for hanging in there while the wind was uncooperative. Thanks to their expertise the ride did not have to cancel again. It was SPECTACULAR. I would highly recommend it for anyone even remotely interested

The hot air balloon ride was amazing! We covered a lot of beautiful scenery and what was extra nice is that all the rides were respectful and not chatting a whole lot to let each individual take in nature's wonder in Utah!
