Enjoying Hot air balloon trips is something anyone can $do, but it is also a popular way to give a gift! When you speak with the pilot you are considering flying with, always to ask how many other passengers will be in the basket.
When it is time for your ride, 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 entire experience!
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.'
It's a very basic principle: Hot air rises and cold air sinks. So while the super-cooled air in your grocer's freezer settles down around the food, the hot air in a hot air balloon pushes up, keeping the balloon floating.

What happens if a bird flys into a balloon?
It would likely bounce off! Even though a bird wouldn't get that close, it would do no harm to the balloon or the bird. The envelope fabric is much tougher than it might appear. It is possible to fly a balloon with a hole large enough for a man to go through as long as the hole is not at the top of the envelope.
