Weather Dependent

If a flight must be canceled because of uncooperative weather conditions, the flight will be rescheduled for a mutually agreeable date. Always contact the Experience provider with any questions regarding weather conditions.
What To Wear
Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for weather conditions and closed toed shoes. A light jacket or sweater may be necessary as it is sometimes cooler in the morning.
Can I bring a camera?
Yes, you are welcome to bring still and video cameras along on your flight to capture the wonderful ballooning adventure.
If I am afraid of heights could I enjoy a balloon flight?
Absolutely!  In fact most of our passengers have some fear of heights.  Strangely enough there is not feeling like that of being on the edge of a tall building or the feeling you get on a Ferris wheel.  Ballooning is calm, almost serene.  If you can handle an airline flight, you will probably really enjoy ballooning.
What's the temperature in the balloon?
The temperature does not change much from the ground to the top altitude.  You lose three degrees every 1,000 feet.  So if it is 75 degrees on the ground at 1,000 feet it will be 72 degrees.
What does it feel like?
Flying in a balloon is like nothing else you will ever experience!  You will become part of the wind gliding above the treetops.  A ride in a balloon is a very smooth, peaceful, enjoyable experience.
What is the balloon made of?
Hot air balloons are made of a polyester or nylon material.

“First class all the way. Friendly and professional pilots and support staff. Knowledgeable and conversant as to explaining the balloon function and safety and answering questions. Treated all going on rides very well.”
“I would highly recommend this for your ballooning experience in Michigan! Friendly, experienced staff; I felt completely safe the entire time (and I'm a bit scared of heights!). We lucked out with an absolutely perfect evening, and were able to see more on our trip than I had ever imagined. I would definitely do it again!!”
“There were 4 balloons taking off. We went out first. I wish a had a choice in which balloon to go, as for example I would go into subsequent balloons (not the first one) to be able to take pictures of them inflating. I also wish I knew how long the ride would take, it seemed too short. Our pilot was very quiet, I wish we had more of a guided tour on this experience.”
“I surprised my boyfriend with a balloon ride for his birthday. It was an incredible experience for both of us. Our expectations of the days events far exceeded our wildest dreams. We have shared this wonderful experience with our friends and family. We will certainly be back! Thank you so very much for a memorable birthday & experience! Keep up the great work! Laura & Scott”
“It has been a great experience! I loved it. It was a lot of fun and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Definitely would recommend it! Thanks for making it happen! ”
