WARNING – 

It has come to our attention recently, that due to the “big ticket item” nature of balloon rides there are several nationwide companies targeting consumers by selling “discount” balloon ride gift certificates. They pass themselves off as local ride companies but really don’t fly balloons in the state, don’t have a local address and believe it or not, some don’t even own a balloon.

Please BEWARE! If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Some of these companies are legitimate and hire folks like Midwest balloon Rides to do the rides, but when booking though these companies you could be paying a 20% to 30% markup over our prices. So before you buy from them check with us first!
