Your Hot Air Balloon adventure begins when you meet your Pilot and Flight Crew. The morning flights meet approximately a 1/2 hour before sunrise and the evening flights approximately 2 1/2 hours before sunset.
At the launch site, your flight crew will brief you on your upcoming balloon adventure. Then, you will watch with awe as your balloon takes shape before your eyes, ultimately standing more than 10 stories tall. Once fully inflated and ready for take off, you climb into the gondola and begin the adventure of a lifetime.
During your flight you will get a spectacular bird's eye view of the area and will drift silently over the city and countryside where you will watch for wildlife and talk with envious onlookers down below. After drifting serenely for approximately an hour we prepare for landing.
Once on the ground, we share in the oldest of ballooning traditions, a champagne toast and revel in the peace, tranquility and beauty that you never before knew existed.
For ballooning we require light winds, good visibility and no precipitation. We fly at approximately 1000 feet above built up areas, but will come down to touch the tree tops or skim across the corn fields if we are out in the countryside.The flights are approximately 1 hour in length, however we do require you for up to 4 hours in total for the entire adventure.
Since we fly with the prevailing winds, our flight patterns and landing sites vary due to the changing wind directions. There is no wind chill and very little feeling of movement or sensation of height.
Due to insurance restrictions we cannot accept passengers under the age of 10, women who are / or may be pregnant, or those with heart, back or knee problems. If you have any questions about these restrictions please discuss them with one of our Customer Service Representatives.
Private chartered flights are also available. Please ask for details on how we can make your special day even more memorable.
Should your flight be cancelled by Sundance Balloons due to inclement weather conditions, you simply will need to call our office and reschedule your flight.
