Reach heights of up to 3,000 feet to be blown wherever the wind takes the basket.

Hot air balloon rides offer the perfect mix of excitement and serenity for a unique experience off the ground. Meet the pilot for a safety briefing before preparing and inflating the balloon with fellow flyers. Shortly after take-off, reach heights of up to 3,000 feet to be blown wherever the wind takes the basket. Look down on stunning views of the countryside while listening to the sound of the breeze as it blows you on your adventure. And since hot air balloons move with the wind, enjoy the calm by drifting gracefully along with it. After landing, help the crew pack away the balloon before being driven back to the launch site. Balloon operators vary, with some offering a slightly longer flight and others a glass of champagne on landing.
