It was the most amazing experience I've ever did.... I was the winner of two tickets from my favorite local radio station, 107.5Alive FM , it was so amazing and the field crew and the pilot were so helpful and caring. The flight was breath taking and take off and landing was gentle and smooth. Thank you and I can only hope to have another great flight in my future!read more

If you can make it to the balloon festival, I'd highly recommend it. If you can't make it to the balloon festival, I still highly recommend it. Great for kids, there was a place to make s'mores, lots of local Amish farm vendors, and not to mention the balloon glow at night (weather permitting.)read more

As a warning up front: my wife and I purchased tickets for a ride, and due to weather, got postponed 4 times over the course of a year. When we did get our chance, it was a wonderfully amazing experience. Our pilot was exceptional and very charismatic (grandson of the owner/founder of this branch of the company), and the experience was one that we will never forget. I drive through this beautiful farmland everyday, but from the sky (with basically only a wicker basket between you and 1000 feet to the ground), a whole new appreciation was gained.read more

We got there when it started, but unfortunately it was too windy to ride. We decided to go eat and cone back for the Glow. The wind had died down enough for rides, but we missed them. The Glow was cool, even though we thought they were going up in the air. They did not. Probably because of the slight wind. It was cool to see them up close though. The food truck festival part was a little weak. Not a lot of trucks for the amount of people. The lines were atleast 50 deep. We will plan on going again next year and making sure we get a ride.read more

I would love to win the ride on the hot air balloon ... I could then give the pilots a high score for the ride of a life time ! The United States Hot Air balloonists must be a highly qualified team... The date noted to win the ride is actually one day before our 30 th anniversary... What a terrific & awesome way to help us celebrate!!! Please pick us !!read more

The Crew were so friendly and helpful, we had a delightful time. The weather finally cooperated after a few postponements! The kids in the neighborhood, where we landed will have lots to talk about for quite a while.
