Looking to experience the skies with the basket all to yourself? A Private Ride is a hot air balloon ride with you and 2-6 other passengers of your choosing! You can fly with family members or get a group of friends together to have an unforgettable experience. A private ride gives you a little bit more flexibility in planning and ensures your group will be the only ones along for the ride.

If you have a specific date you want to fly that is not open on our calendar? Please ask and we will see if we can make it happen with help from our balloon friends!

The entire experience will last approximately 3 hours, which includes watching the hot air balloon take shape and prepare for liftoff. You will then float through the sky for about 1 hour taking in surreal views that cannot be seen any other way. We will bring along our cameras to snap pictures while you enjoy the view. We will make sure these get passed along to you once our ride is complete! We also have a few surprises included during the ride, but we won’t tell you what those are just yet. Upon returning to the ground, you will have the opportunity to help us pack the balloon up. After the balloon is packed away we will share the story of how ballooning got started as we provide our traditional toast!
