The captain answered all the questions asked. The chase crew worked
very hard, and brought us down to earth safely.
If you have a bucket list, this better be on it. I'm... afraid of heights, but
had zero issues. Make sure you tip these guys, they work hard.

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!
Please note, I have posted some of the pictures on my fb page. Please feel free to take a look!read more
