Enjoying Hot air balloon rides is something everyone can enjoy, but it is also a very popular way to go on a date! When you speak with the company you are considering flying with, be sure to ask how many others will be in the basket.
When it is time for your flight, your ride company will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the fun!
Be sure to bring a camera and plenty of film!
You'll be surprised at how many pictures you take before, during and after your flight. Bring more film or memory than you think you'll use. Once you're in the air and snapping away you sure don't want to be surprised by running out!
You can bring cameras for still or video, and we suggest you carry them in a protective case. Your pilot may ask you to put your cameras away during landing to make sure there are no objects that could fly out of your hand and hurt someone. Once you're on the ground you can start shooting again.
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.'

Balloonists are borrowing someone's land every time they take off and land, so they are very careful not to disturb or damage someone's property. The landowner is always thanked, and by the time the crew is leaving the landing site, most balloonists are already planning their next flight!
