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:
How posterity will laugh at us, one way or other! If half a dozen break their necks, and balloonism is exploded, we shall be called fools for having imagined it could be brought to use: if it should be turned to account, we shall be ridiculed for having doubted.
— Horace Walpole, letter to Horace Mann, 24 June 1785.
How do you become part of a chase crew? You can look up in the sky and follow the next balloon you see until it lands. Please allow the crew to pack the balloon away before you approach the basket. Then all you have to do is tell one of the crew that you are interested in ballooning. You will more than likely be directed to the pilot, who will either snatch you up for their own crew, then and there, or place you in contact with someone who can find you a home.

In their simplest form, balloon competitions score how close a pilot can get to a pre-determined target. Small weighted markers are dropped at the target. The challenge is to be the closest to the target, but unlike all other forms of flying, balloon pilots do not have direct control of their direction of flight. The balloon simply drifts with the wind.
