Why can't I get a balloon ride in the middle of the day?
Balloons fly early in the morning, right after sunrise and late in the day, right before sunset. This is when the wind is calmest since the sun is low in the sky. The wind is generally too unpredictable, with severe up-and down-drafts, during the middle of the day. It isn't safe to offer balloon rides when the wind is unstable.
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 are the differences between gas and hot air balloons?
A gas balloon is completely enclosed and is filled with helium or hydrogen. A hot air balloon gets its lift from heating the air within it. The Breitling Orbiter, which flew non-stop around the world in 1999, was a combination gas and hot air balloon.
