Searching for Ballon rides in Richmond? You have found to the end of your search! Finding a ride provider to provide Ballon rides is easy. Also, you can check our ride guide, or look in your yellow pages.
Enjoying Ballon rides is something anyone can participate in, but it is also a popular way to give a gift! When you speak with the pilot you are thinking about booking with, don't forget to ask how many passengers will be on the flight.
When it is time for your trip, 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 fun!
Deal direct with the company you fly with:
Our guide is unique since it lists the actual ride companies in a particular area. This offers many advantages over the 'Prepaid' ride companies.
First, you can visit with the company and find out all you need to know, including their specific terms and practices. Secondly, when you book directly with the flight company, you know exactly where you'll fly, how long the flight will last, and what is included. Our directory also allows you to comparison shop when there are multiple operators in an area.
The companies that advertise 'hundreds of locations nationwide' usually contract with a single operator in an area and pay them only a fraction of what you paid for your flight. Passengers that come from these 'aggregators' are used to fill vacant spots on existing flights, and it may be more difficult to actually schedule your flight if all seats are full during the most desirable times of year. As with most things, you get what you pay for!
Famous Balloon Quote:
I have known today a magnificent intoxication. I have learnt how it feels to be a bird. I have flown. Yes I have flown. I am still astonished at it, still deeply moved.
— Le Figaro, 1908.
What if you have to go to the bathroom?
Pre-planning is the key! Since flights average about an hour or so, pre-planning pays off in this regard. There are no bathrooms aboard the balloon.
