Searching for Ballon rides in Hampton? Welcome to the spot! Finding a pilot to provide Ballon rides is easy. Also, you can visit our Balloon Ride Directory, or look in your yellow pages.
Enjoying Ballon rides is something anyone can $do, but it is also a popular way to give a gift! When you speak with the firm you are considering flying with, always to ask how many other passengers will be in the basket.
When it is time for your adventure, your company will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the entire experience!
What should you wear during your flight?
Ballooning is not a formal occasion, so heals, dresses and suits are not appropriate. Dress like you would for an outdoor hike. Comfortable shoes (no open-toed shoes or sandals, please), long pants and layered clothing during the cooler months are recommended. Balloons don't normally land at airports, so you'll probably be standing in an open field after landing. Dress appropriately for the area of the country you're flying in.
Be sure to check with the company you are flying with for their clothing rules.
Famous Balloon Quote:
The best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature.
— William Pene du Bois, 'The Twenty-one Balloons.'
Competition pilots have become quite skilled in reading the winds aloft and using them to their advantage to get where they want to be (the target!). Competitors have gotten so good that the difference between first place and third or fourth can be fractions of an inch.

Can I smoke in or around a hot air balloon?
It's not advisable because of the possibility of propane fires or explosions from leaks, although leaks are extremely rare. The balloon fabric can also be damaged by a stray spark or hot ash. There is a strict non-smoking rule at most balloon festivals.
