Was a great experience. Not as scary as it would seem. Easy take off and easy landing great photos and staff was amazing. Our pilot was Stan and he was awesome. Thanks for the flight. A little pricey but worth it if u have the money to spend.

Went to celebrate my birthday with them and the experience was AMAZING ! received a lot of help from Brenda who was always willing to answer all my questions. The day of my flight, the crew was great. Stan, our pilot was the man! After it was over, we received souvenirs and some complimentary champagne to finish off the day! Only reason I didn't give them a 5 star was because of the distance. It took me almost 2 hours and a half to get there. Besides that, Great job!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

My son and I flew 6AM on 8-22-17 (my contact info was bat1962). Our pilot Lucas was extremely skilled in handling the balloon, no small feat with such a combersome thing. The ground crew was also very good and worked quickly. They took pictures for us and made the whole event very enjoyable. It's a shame I can't give them more than 5 stars. I would definitely fly with you again and look forward to it.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

Are you in search of a safe, fun, and exciting hot air balloon company?! Search no further. I would highly recommend this company to everyone. My experience with The United States Hot Air Balloon Team was more than ordinary, it was extra-ordinary. A big shout-out to Jake Frame and his team for making my proposal a story to remember. Although I was a chicken at first, I will never forget the thrill of floating so high above PA. That view was incredible and definitely one for the books.

This is one top notch company. We flew with them a little less than a year ago. I was surfing around online and realized I never left a review. I could not have asked for a better experience. Everything from the phone service to the pilots and their crew was flawless. We wer canceled 2 times in the afternoon due to weather. The third time we scheduled for the morning and it was well worth the wait. My Mother in-law is disabled and she flew with no issues. The crew helped her in and out of the basket and the in-flight experience was an absolute delight. The best part about the entire experience was the smile on my mother in-law's face when we landed. Anyway, we are thinking of booking another flight this year. There is no doubt in my mind this is the company that you will want to fly with. They really went above and beyond the call of duty to assist me and my family. Thank You!read more

My wifeand I just took a flight on Wednesday 10/3. 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 backread more

The whole company went out of their way to make the flight awesome. The people in the office, to the chase Crew. to Jake the pilot, who's talent goes way beyond his young years. As a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne many years ago I've had a lot of experience with good and bad landing. Pilot Jake did his job of commanding the chase Crew, and us in the basket to make a great landing. I would fly with Jake anytime.read more

US Hot-air balloon came through in the clutch! We were rained out the previous week, but Brenda was sure to get us in at the Lancaster location the day before the flight. I planned on proposing to my gf but did not know how it was going to work out. 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! He took a great video and awesome pictures and couldn’t have asked for a better pilot! I highly recommend taking a hot air ballon with this group! I enjoyed every minute from the beginning to the champagne toast at the end! 5 out of 5 stars. Thanks for everything! - Jimmyread 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

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

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
