Searching for Balloon rides in Los Angeles? This is to the page you want! Finding a ride provider to provide Balloon rides is easy. In addition, you can check our ride guide, or look in the local yellow pages.

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:
There's something in a flying horse,
There's something in a huge balloon.
— William Wordsworth, 'Peter Bell,' Prologue. Stanza 1.
The basket of a balloon is commonly made of wicker, which is used because it is lightweight and very strong. The baskets are made in different sizes to match the size of the balloon. When modern ballooning was born in the 1960s, aluminum and fiberglas materials were tried, but they were not as flexible.

Can balloons fly at night?
Yes, although balloonists seldom do because of decreased visibility and the requirement for instruments and lights. Most balloons are certified for day flying only.
