If you have any medical condition that would prevent you from standing for an hour, lifting any heavy items, or any condition that would be compromised from any sort of impact with the ground please let the pilot know well in advance of the flight.

You are embarking on an active ballooning experience that may involve assisting with the set up and pack up process (possibly heavy lifting). If you have any questions regarding your involvement with this please let the pilot know well in advance via e-mail.

We do a champagne toast at the end of the flight. Not during or before the flight for safety reasons. If the pilot or any crew member believes that a passenger is under the influence of alcohol we reserve the right to not allow you on or in the balloon. This is for the safety of all passengers on board.If you or anyone in your party has consumed any alcoholic beverage before or during the flight the passenger and/or the group will forfeit their deposit.

Cancellation Policy

We kindly ask that if for any reason you need to cancel that you do so five days (120 hours) in advance. If cancellation is made within five days of the flight a $50 fee per person will be assessed. You deposit will also be forfeited if you are fifteen minutes late to our meeting spot as it is important to launch the balloon close to the meeting time. You will not be charged any fee if the flight is canceled by the pilot for safety reasons.

Please arrive early!! Plan on arriving up to 1.5 hours early as we had people who missed their flights due to traffic. The crowds are heavy even in the mornings. You will be charged the deposit even if you are late because of “traffic” or “crowds.” If you are more than 15 minutes late to the above meeting time you will be charged the deposit.
