Are you ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime?! Your Hot Air Balloon adventure begins when you meet your Pilot and Flight Crew. The morning flights meet approximately a 1/2 hour after sunrise and the evening flights approximately 2 1/2 hours before sunset.
At the launch site, the adventure begins with your flight crew briefing. Then, you will watch with awe as your see our beautiful and colourful balloons takes shape before your very 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.
Up, Up & Away into the sky, you will have a bird’s eye view of the wonderful surrounding area. We will float above the cities at approximate heights of 500-2500 feet. You will then drift towards the beautiful countryside, where you will see things nobody else can. Look for wildlife, as the wind gently carries you over forests, ponds, and lakes. Wave to and talk with envious on-lookers down below. The heights will vary from the ground up to 3500 feet above ground, so that you get a fantastic view un-surpassed by any other form of flight.
After a breathtaking flight, which will last approximately 1 hour, your pilot will prepare you for landing and remind you of what to do. Once landed, your Flight Crew will stabilize and pack up the balloon while we invite you to join us for a champagne toast, the oldest of ballooning traditions. Your pilot will present you with a personalized Flight Certificate, signed and dated, to commemorate your Hot Air Balloon Adventure.
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.
Due to insurance restrictions we cannot accept passengers under the age of 8, 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 Skyward Balloons due to inclement weather conditions, you simply will need to call our office and reschedule your flight.
