  • Wonderful experience! Not scary, even if you don’t like heights! Feels like you’re floating! Smooth landing. Professional crew. Jonathan, Jim, and Justin are the best!  more »

  • I have not rode in a hot air balloon, thats not what this review is about. This review is about the safety of others around while these hot air balloon companies are providing their services. We see hot air balloons everyday several times a day around the skies in our neighborhood. The kids and adults love to see them equally. BUT today was a big NO! About two weeks ago there was two hot air balloons that got really low near our neighborhood and actually grazed the top of my roof and slowly floated through our neighborhood. I was stunned. Everybody ran outside to look and we stood there and we videotaped it in amazement. I wasn't too thrilled about the whole roof thing but it looked like it was okay. Well... This evening I heard something that sounded similar to me and it clicked in my head that it was a hot air balloon again so I told my kids and my husband "hurry let's go outside and look." And just as we ran outside a huge hot air balloon was Landing in our cul-de-sac. Not just floating by... NO, it was truly landing! It was so cool and scary all at once. You can imagine naturally everybody in the neighborhood comes running out of their houses and moving towards the excitement. All of a sudden these two vans come speeding by us, hopping curbs, going well over the speed limit, blasting music so loud that they couldn't hear us parents yelling at them to slow down. They literally left skid marks on the road and the curbs. Not to mention they scared the heck out of us. It wasn't the hot air balloon that concerned us it was the drivers of the vans going to assist the people in the hot air balloon that scared us, van #18 especially. But it was van #5 too. It was absolutely 100% unacceptable. This is a family neighborhood, there are so many children that live in all of these little cul-de-sacs and what these drivers did was so completely reckless and irresponsible. Driving like that was not worth endangering innocent children's lives to drive that damn fast in our neighborhood to get to the balloon. If that's the case then you guys need to steer away from neighborhoods altogether. We love the sight of the balloons but if this is how it's going to be then just keep them away. I attached pictures in the photo section.
