Our one-hour balloon rides launch at sunrise or sunset, weather permitting. The first few minutes of the flight are spent at tree top level, allowing you to get a feel for the flight. From there we may ascend up to 2,000 or 3,000 feet above the ground.
At this altitude it is possible to see both Charlotte and Winston-Salem skylines, Lake Norman, as well as the Brushy Mountains! At times we may see some of the abundant wildlife that calls Iredell County home.
If you desire a family affair or want to to have a high-flying party, give us a call and we'll add a few more balloons to accommodate you wishes.
Call 704-880-0238 for reservations.
Please remember that all balloon flights are completely weather dependent. If your flight is canceled, understand that it is for your safety. If the winds are forecast to be above 10 mph or if there is any chance of thunderstorms in the area we will reschedule your flight. Flights may be canceled due to heat and as a general rule, we will cancel if the heat index is over 90 degrees.
You must be able to remain standing for at least one hour. There are no seats or chairs in the balloon (call with special needs).
On the day of your flight, dress as you would if you were going to be outside for three hours. Your pilot will tell you if you need to bring a jacket. Cotton clothing is best. Wear tennis shoes or flats, as you will be standing for a long time. Tank tops, sandals and high heels are not recommended.
There are excellent photographic opportunities throughout the flight You are welcome to bring your camera equipment on board.
