How long do balloon rides last?
Most balloon flights are in the air for 30 minutes to one hour, but you should plan on being out with the balloon team for three hours or more. First, the pilot must determine the launch site based on current wind direction. The chase crew will follow the balloon during the flight and will be there when the balloon lands. the balloon is packed up and passengers and crew are returned to the original meeting place.
Be sure to check with the company you are flying with to see how long your flight is expected to last.
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.'
How long does it take to inflate and deflate the balloon?
A good ground crew can inflate and launch a balloon in fifteen minutes or less. It takes about the same amount of time to deflate and pack up the balloon after the flight.

The pilot heats the air in the balloon to rise, and lets the air cool to descend. An experienced pilot has absolute control over the balloon's altitude, but can't turn against the wind. The pilot steers the ballon by finding different air currents that are moving in the direction he wants to fly.
