This was a Christmas gift from my wonderful son-in-law! Finally got to do it this morning and it was a wonderful fulfillment of a lifetime dream! Lucas was our pilot and he did an amazing job. The ride was wonderful and the crew members were great!

My wife and I just took a flight on Wednesday 10/3/18. We wanted to do something a little different and exciting. Well, we chose the right thing to do. It was phenomenal from start to finish, office help to pilot (Lucas), to chase team. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Though a little anxious before we took off, it went away as soon as we were airborne. Such a calming, relaxing, as well as exciting trip all in one. We have been the talk of our friends as soon as they heard and especially after seeing the pictures. I would highly recommend doing this to anyone. Beyond a doubt, one of the best things we have experienced. We will be back.

This was on my bucket list. My kids gave it to me for my birthday present. It was the best birthday ever!!! The ride was wonderful. Views were amazing. We landed in front of an Amish farm and the kids all came out to help. Talking to them and seeing their excitement topped the cake. Our pilot Jesse was the best. He has an awesome team with Jay and Mason. I could not have asked for a better day. Thank you Jesse Jay and Mason for such a great experience.

My husband and I rode in a Hot Air Balloon this morning, (our first flight), and we had an awesome time! Our pilot, Kyle Laxton, and his "chase crew" were very friendly, and knowledgeable-which made our flight very memorable. We hope to return in December, for another wonderful flight!

When are the flights available?

We offer rides in our balloons year-round (weather dependent), but our primary season with a more routine schedule is April through November. Sunrise and sunset flights occur daily from launch points in southeastern Pennsylvania. 3-day and 5-day PA Adventure Tours are coordinated to fit your schedule.

 

What is involved in the hot air balloon ride?

What makes our hot air balloon flights so memorable is that they are much more than just the ride itself. If you so wish, you are encouraged to take part in the inflation of the balloon. Learn ballooning insight from the experts themselves from flight launch to landing. We also provide a champagne toast and refreshments. Transportation back to the launch site is included. Don’t forget to bring your camera so we can catch your memories on film!

 

How long is the whole ballooning experience?

The entire experience is 2 1/2 – 3 hours from start to finish, including hands-on launch, an hour-long flight, refreshments and transport.

 

How many people can take a balloon ride at one time?

A typical flight will include 4-10 people. However, if you are interested in a private, romantic flight, we offer couples-only flights as well.

 

What should I wear?

Dress to be comfortable as you would if you were on the ground depending upon the day’s weather conditions. Because a hot air balloon travels at the same speed as the air around it, wind chill factors are eliminated, so if anything, it is typically a bit warmer in the balloons. Do not overdress, particularly in the summer.

 

Are there age restrictions or height requirements for the balloon rides?

Riders of our balloons must be of age 6 and up. There are no height requirements.

 

Can I fly if I'm pregnant?

Sorry, we cannot fly anyone who is pregnant. Please call us after the baby is born, or give us a call if you would like additional information.

 

Can I just show up for a flight or do I need to make reservations?

We recommend you call a week to 10 days in advance; however, never hesitate to call with less notice because there is a good chance there may be space available on your desired flight. Keep in mind as you make plans that the most heavily-booked time of year is mid-September through mid-November, and the most popular flight time is Saturday’s Sunset Flights.

 

What is your policy on balloon rides if weather conditions are poor?

We don’t fly in stormy weather or rain, and you will be made aware of any cancellations when you call in to confirm your flight beforehand. If a cancellation does occur, you will have three options:

  • Reschedule your balloon flight.
  • Request a refund — See terms & conditions

 

  • Use your ticket toward a balloon ride anywhere in the U.S. with any of our affiliates.

What are your customer service hours of operation?

9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and in May through November, during the weekends as well. We’re very available and approachable.

 

Is there a risk of motion sickness while airborne in the balloons?

No. Once the balloon leaves the ground, it is moving at the same speed as the environment. There is no feeling of motion. The sensation of ballooning, is the absence of sensation.
