On the day of your hot air balloon ride, we will check the weather conditions, and if everything looks good, we will call you to confirm the ride.  We then meet at a designated site where we will determine our launch location.

Once we arrive at the launch site, the launch crew will

  • Remove Balloon System from truck.
  • Assembles the Balloon System.
  • Lay out the balloon for inflation.
  • Steady the balloon during inflation
  • Turns off inflator fan
  • Hold down the Balloon until Pilot is ready for Lift Off

Your pilot will brief you on hot air balloon ride safety and what you can expect during the launch, ride, and landing.

Once we are in flight, you may see wildlife including deer, osprey and golfers. Make sure your camera is ready as the photo opportunities are endless.

While you are in the air, our chase crew will pack up the equipment at the launch site.  They will safely follow along as we drift over Kensington Metro Park, Island Lake State Park, Camp Dearborn, and on occasion, the General Motors Proving Grounds.
