What Should You Expect On A Hot Air Balloon Ride?

PLEASURE. Of course.

If you’ve never traveled in a hot air balloon before, it’s normal to be a little curious or apprehensive about what to expect.  Flights usually launch just after  dawn or several hours before sunset, which is due to the fact that the wind is usually at its most calm during this time. As wind speed is the most important consideration in ballooning, it is vital that weather conditions are right.



Local golf courses open seasonally
