Balloon rides - $195 per passenger.
Flights last approximately 1 hour and carry up to 6 passengers.
Daily flights offer a year round change of scenery including mountain ranges, plains, and wildlife as far as the eye can see. Experience the bliss of floating in mid-air in perfect silence, slowly drifting with the wind, often in the company of other brightly colored balloons. Reflect on the history of the first form of human flight, stretching back over 200 years. Due to climate conditions in the Front Range area of the Rocky Mountains, flights only take place in the early morning hours. Launch times vary through the seasons.
Options: Included in the standard hot air balloon flight are post-flight brunch with cider or champagne (adults only), official balloon pin, frameable flight certificate. Couples may also reserve an entire balloon for a romantic private flight at a cost of $850.
Logistics: Passengers are encouraged to participate in both the inflation and deflation of the balloon, it adds greatly to the fun of the entire experience. There is enough room in chase vehicles to transport crew and passengers. Family members and friends are welcome to come and watch, but they must provide their own transportation.
Scheduling: Flights are available every day, all year, near dawn. High winds, low clouds, rain or snow may prevent flying. Reservations required. Should a flight be cancelled due to inclement weather, it will be rescheduled for the next available flight date. If you need to cancel, you must notify the office at least seven days prior to your scheduled flight or full charges will be assessed.
Preparation: Dress casually and comfortably - sneakers or low-heeled shoes. Because of Colorado's varying temperatures, we suggest dressing in layers. For winter flights, we strongly suggest warm, dry footwear. Don't forget your cameras, bring plenty of extra film. Both for safety reasons and in consideration of other passengers, we request that there be no smoking in or around the balloon or any of the other motorized equipment.
