Attraction details
Owner description: Liberty Balloon Company was founded in 1976 by former US Navy aviator Carroll Teitsworth. Carroll is still the hub around which the business turns, but we have grown to a family-operated, full time, exclusive hot air balloon company offering rides over Letchworth State Park and the Finger Lakes Region. We schedule by reservation only, and always morning or evening. We take safety seriously; so we fly only when the weather permits and the wind is calm. We fly "small" balloons that have capacity for up to four in one balloon; but we can accommodate up to eight with two balloons. We also offer a several flight packages for those looking for an even more exclusive experience. Join us for your own hot air balloon adventure; we look forward to meeting and flying with you!

My husband arranged for us to take the balloon ride. I was hesitant at first, but soooooo glad we did this. Carroll was great! Professional, yet has a great sense of humor. Thank you for making our vacation so memorable.

What a day.. we left from the front lawn of Chalet of Canandaigua (an amazing spot to stay) and had an amazing ride. Carroll and Lee were GREAT. We even set down in the middle of a field light as a feather and then right back up into the sky. This was a once in a lifetime event and the staff and Crew at Liberty made it even better! Experience and confidence is what you want in a situation like that and this company had that down! If you get the chance you won't be disappointed.

From the very first contact with Carroll online, this company is professional, knowledgeable and had detailed answers to all our questions. His son, Lee our pilot and Lance, his brother as the ground crew had our trust from the very start. Lee kept in contact with us continually throughout the day and provided detailed weather updates as well as detailed information about the flight itself. This was a surprised 50th birthday gift and there were 4 of us for a sunset ride. The view over the Finger Lakes was fantastic and we even did a "dip & dash" in Seneca Lake. The sunset was perfect and we could see 60miles to Rochester!. He provided flight information and stories which enhanced our experience and took fantastic photos of us. After dipping to the treetops for a souvenir of leaves, we landed softly in an Amish cornfield which to our delight was welcomed by several Amish families and their adorable children to help pack up the balloon. A celebratory toast with sparkling cider and a witty Certificate of "Survival" were presented to all of us. It could not have been a better experience as they work with you individually to provide the best, most desired trip. Book with this family business for a one-in-a-lifetime memory. You will be well cared for! thank you Liberty!

My son and I had a fantastic time on our hot air balloon flight a few weeks ago! I won a flight at a benefit last fall and didn't want to go alone so I took my son along with me. The crew was great. Our pilot Lee was super - so polite and helpful and full of information! We had a perfect evening to fly - no wind and so clear we could see for miles.Our flight even had a surprise ending of landing at an outdoor wedding! I would recommend Liberty Balloon Company to anyone wanting to have a great experience!

Family run business, very nice people. I booked with Carroll, and met him and his son, Lee, (our pilot) the morning of our flight (October 13), along with several other members of their crew. There were two balloons flying today with 6 passengers and 2 pilots. Was a crisp 28 degrees at 7:00 am, we launched shortly thereafter. Very calm, and clear day. We were near Castile, NY and Letchworth State Park. Total flight was about an hour and a quarter. We saw deer, geese, the fog on the lake. Lee said we were at 2300 feet or so at the highest point. Also we could see Buffalo and Rochester both about 35 miles away. Overall a fantastic experience.
