For our first balloon ride, we really wanted to go up with a bunch of balloons during the festival, but our flight was canceled last year and this year, due to weather, which a lot of people seemed pretty angry about, but I would definitely rather... err on the side of caution with this one! If we couldn’t go up during the festival, our second choice was Hershey, but they couldn’t really find any availability for that last year, so we were going to reluctantly do Lancaster, but that was canceled because of weather as well. We were able to book a Hershey ride this year, after the festival launch was canceled, but they canceled that the day of because there weren’t enough people on the ride, so they pushed us to do Lancaster again, so we took it just to finally actually get to do the flight. The ride itself was quite an experience and the pilot was awesome both in flying ability and entertainment, so I absolutely recommend putting this on your bucket list, but it does require a lot of flexibility because the weather has to be pretty perfect. It can also be pretty crammed in the basket if the flight is full, but it wasn’t too horrible. Everyone was still able to see and get pictures and such.read more

We got married in a balloon with this company, and can not say enough about how amazing the experience was!! Our pilot was Lucas, and he was not only an expert with his balloon, he was an extremely cordial and pleasant guide. He helped to put us all... at ease while maneuvering our flight, and was impressively knowledgeable about the area and of safety concerns. My new wife and I will always remember our amazing sunrise ceremony; it was more beautiful than we imagined. Both my wife and I were/are in AWE of our experience! The ground crew was cheerful even though they had a tough time keeping up with us sometimes, and took some outstanding pictures of us to boot. The champagne toast afterward was a really nice touch as well. Worth every penny and will definitely go again!read more

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 backread 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

The front desk sign in person at the Lancaster location was extremely helpful with planning and coordinating with the pilot. The pilot Lucas took care of the rest and was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, funny and made the entire hot air balloon ride very comfortable and enjoyable!

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

When my mom and I were planning our trip to PA, we decided to cross off Hot Air Balloon Ride from the "bucket list". We couldn't have picked a better place /company to go with. Kyle was a fantastic pilot and guide, and his personality made you... feel right at home with him. His ground crew (Corey and Sharon) were fantastic as well. All three went the extra mile at the end of our ride, when my mom noticed her diamond had fallen out of her ring. They all stopped their post flight duties, and we're literally on their hands and knees searching in the grass and in the basket. They never gave up looking, and they ended up finding it stuck in the weave of the basket, and then worked together to get it out. Amazing group of people...we can't thank them enough for the experience and the extra effort they put in to making it a happy memory!read more

Last night in Palmyra, Pa, we had the pleasure to see a beautiful sight. Of one of your hot air balloons came floating above our neighborhood. Realizing it was slowly starting to descend, we decided to follow it. We were able to watch the... beautiful sight of the balloon "touch down"! It was amazing!As a croud gathered around, we watched in awe how the team on the ground went into action to bring the balloon down and wrap it up!The best part of this experience was how appreciative the team was to the crowd. The pilot, which I did not get his name, allowed the children to get inside the basket with him so the mom's could get pictures! Thank you to the team for being so kind and friendly to us. It's an experience the kids snd grown-up's will always remember!Regards, Melissa TishkoPlease note, I have posted some of the pictures on my fb page. Please feel free to take a look!read more

My non husband and I went on a hot air balloon ride this morning, 8/2/15. We got there at 5:30AM and helped set up. Our flight was AWESOME. We went as high as 6000 feet and as low as just above the trees. I really want to do this again. Kyle... suggested the same area but in the fall as the trees change. I am trying to get a group of people together to do that. That's just how much I would recommend doing this. Kyle and his crew were so nice and Kyle pointed things out as we flew near them.read more

Kinda' tentative because of cloudiness and chance of rain, but it turned out to be a great experience. Kyle is a great pilot and an extremely personable guy. My fellow fliers were interesting and a pleasure to meet. The thunderstorm that hit a few... minutes after we landed added a touch more excitement to an already thrilling trip. As a big guy, I could have liked a bigger gondola or fewer people. We were really packed in there. I would do it again in a heart beat.read more

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!read more
