What is it like flying in a balloon?
You'll be amazed the first time you go for a balloon ride! The feeling is unlike anything else. It is very calm and serene, and not frightening at all. The view is spectacular, and depending on the location of your balloon flight, you're likely to see local wildlife as never before. It is very quiet except for the occasional WHOOOSH of the burner, and you can talk to people on the ground!
The 360 degree view is spectacular as you drift silently above the world. You may brush gently through the treetops or soar thousands of feet above the earth; either way you'll be thrilled at the peace and serenity of your adventure.
Famous Balloon Quote:
The winds have welcomed you with softness,
The sun has greeted you with it's warm hands,
You have flown so high and so well,
That God has joined you in laughter,
And set you back gently into
The loving arms of Mother Earth.
— Anon, known as 'The Baloonists Prayer', believed to have been adapted from an old Irish sailors' prayer.
A balloon team is often a family affair. Crew people come in all shapes and sizes: singles, married, and entire families can be found. Pick any combination of these types of folks, and they are here too. There are crew people ranging from new born babies, to folks well into their 80's still enjoying the sport. The only special skill needed for the balloon ground crew is a willingness to learn and ask questions. Some tasks require a fair amount of physical strength, but don't worry, there are even more tasks that do not.

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.
