We enjoyed this experience greatly. Flying with Troy was an added bonus! Hearing stories of his experience and knowledge of his great ballooning history was remarkable. We wanted to go again immediately!

Amazing experience
, Jul. 2021
We absolutely loved this experience. John was our pilot. He was funny knowledgeable and super friendly. We had an amazing flight and landing. Once we landed we had champagne to celebrate a safe flight and he teached us about the history of hot air ballons. Once we got back we were given a certificate which was a sweet way of ending the experience. We loved it so much that we are planning to get a group of friends and do it again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Oh the views out of this world ❤️
A Great Time!

Fun balloon ride
, Jul. 2021
Had a wonderful balloon ride with the family, even my teens loved it! I felt really comfortable with our pilot, he has several world records under his belt for flying hot air balloons. The scenery was amazing.We didn't land where we were supposed to but did land in a guy's backyard, thank goodness he wasn't upset. Actually think it made his day. Would definitely recommend!
Worth it
, Jun. 2021
Absolutely amazing experience! We had Patrick as our pilot and he was fun! We had a rough landing but our pilot made sure we all were prepared for it and no injuries. Got to see so much and the price was lower than any other balloon tour and the entire staffing from booking to confirming to action was king and informative. Highly recommend!
Awesome way to start our anniversary
, Aug. 2020
Troy and his team were amazing, and highly efficient. They made the experience phenomenal. It was our anniversary, and they treated us to a great start to a special day. The combination of the awesome views, exhilarating ride, and the information provided by an experienced pilot like Troy made it a very comfortable way to see the Rockies in a new way. I highly recommend this group! Thank you for a special day!

Amazing views of Colorado Springs

1st balloon ride. Brooke was a great pilot, smooth takeoff and landing. Exceeded my family's expectation. Mimosa at end of ride finished off a perfect sunrise flight.

Sunrise serenity
, Jun. 2020
Was apprehensive but wow! What a peaceful,smooth, enjoyable experience. So glad we checked this off the bucket list. The view of the mountains at sunrise. The landscape, the wild life. And a perfect landing. Watching the balloons (3) being inflated and then packed back up was cool too. Highly suggest to do at least once.
Flying high
, Jun. 2020
The crew and pilot were so helpful and did a great job communicating every aspect of what they were doing. And the views were spectacular! This is a must do for anyone that isn’t afraid of heights!
Hot Air ballon ride at Sunrise
, Jul. 2019
We took the opportunity to check this bucket list item and we were happy we did. It was a wonderful experience. Weather was great, party c;oudy, mild. Sunrise was clearly seen. The pilot was very well versed and skillful. He answered all our questions and explained how his gear worked and the details of the ride. We had a grand time. The only regret was that the flight lasted only 45 minutes!
