Saturday February 8, 2014 / 6:30amMorning Hot Air Balloon Rides
General Admission (Standing Event)
How was your experience?
I had a great time and look forward to ballooning AGAIN!! Okay so it's an early start @6:30 a.m., complete release forms on clip boards, weigh in, etc........the forms could have been emailed and collected at check in to expedite the process......really! Then off to the launch site to wait for them to unfurl the balloon, fill the balloon, and attach to the basket.......so about 2 hours after your arrival.......lift off (you get great photos of the entire process though). The knowledge of our pilot was great he shared with us and also answered all questions. The one hour flight was pleasant, peaceful, and worth every minute of waiting! Champagne, orange juice, or both to end the flight was refreshing. We landed at a location other than our start point and were tracked the whole way. We bonded as passengers while they deflated the balloon and packed everything back up!
