What should I expect from my Hot Air Balloon Flight?
The answer is simple.
“A MEMORY OF A LIFE TIME”.
Gradually the dew covered grass sinks silently away and the earth kaleidoscopes into a masterful mosaic of color and texture. Your memory starts as you float aboard a beautiful nine-story tall balloon as gentle breezes carry you over the natural beauty of the serene landscape. Sweeping just over the tree tops you are close enough to pick a treasured bouquet, a gift that can only be found from your balloon. Your senses will explode with the sweet aroma of pine, oak and magnolia. You have been launched on a magical voyage.
As your journey continues you will rise effortlessly above the earth for a picturesque view of the forested country-side. Watch closely for a herd of deer, a red fox running through the wheat field, a beaver repairing its dam or even the majestic eagle nesting its young. You see everything in a different perspective, as if you are sitting on a cloud. Now you begin to understand the magic of hot air ballooning.
As your flight comes to an end you will join us back at our balloon-port to celebrate your flight and membership into our very unique group of passengers. From this day forward you will always be known as an Aeronaut, a person who has flown in a hot air balloon.

The Balloonists' Prayer
The winds have welcomed you with softness.
The sun has blessed you with its warm hands.
You have flown so high and so well that God has joined you in your laughter and set you gently back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.
May your skies always be blue, your winds gentle and your landings soft
