Hot air balloon rides are a perfect way to celebrate birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, employee awards, or any other special occasion.
All flights include a traditional champagne toast (non-alcoholic champagne available upon request). The passengers will also receive flight certificates and flight pins to remember the special occasion.
Hot air balloon flights occur twice a day, minutes after sunrise and about an hour prior to sunset when the air is most stable providing lighter winds for a safe. We offer sunset hot air balloon rides weekdays and sunrise and sunset hot air balloon rides weekends and holidays.
Fuel consumption, weather conditions, and landing availability cause the length of each flight to vary. We guarantee a 30 minute flight, but will fly as long as we can do so safely. An average flight is 45 minutes to 1 hour. The entire event from the time we meet at the launch site, inflate the balloon, fly, have our champagne celebration, and return to the launch site takes about 2.5 - 3 hours.
Our balloons can carry up to 4 passengers plus a pilot. If you have a larger group it is possibile to arrange to have multiple balloons to accommodate your party.
We are proud to have a 100% safety record since we started flying in 1982. We always make every effort to fly the safest and most advanced equipment available.
Ballooning relies on good weather. We don't fly in rain, fog, snow, or wind above about 7mph. Balloons do not fly when there is a threat of thunderstorms in the area. Other conditions can affect the decision to fly or not to fly. If your scheduled flight is canceled due to weather, the flight will be rescheduled at no additional cost.

We would love to talk about our flights and share the wonderful sport of hot air ballooning with you. Please call or email with any questions.
For charter flights there is a chance that other passengers may be booked to fly with you at the same time (Up to 4 passengers total).
Our private flights reserve the basket for the pilot plus 2 passengers.
Our rates are comparable to other companies in the area. Are there lower prices available? Probably. However, if you are attempting to find the cheapest flight make sure you ask for details about a less expensive flight. Always ask about flight length, what's included, how many other passengers might be schedule to fly at the same time, and if they fly multiple groups during the same flight time, also called hops. A balloon flight is an experience of a lifetime, and is an activity where it is sometimes best to avoid the lowest price.
We require a deposit of $200.00 to reserve a date.
It is our strict policy NOT to offer a refund.
We can only carry a limited number of passengers at a time, and by making your reservation, you have filled a spot preventing us from making other reservations. In the event that passengers need to cancel a flight, they must contact Endless Mountains Hot Air Balloons, Inc. a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Cancellations less than 48 hours of the meeting time will result in forfeiture of the flight deposit. If a cancellation is made 48 hours or more in advance of the flight, the flight will be rescheduled. No refund will be given.
If the weather does not allow us to fly (a decision determined by the pilot), no refund is offered. However, we will reschedule your flight at a time available to both parties.
We understand that unexpected hardships do occur and will review each circumstance on a case-by-case basis. After a review of the cancellation circumstances and if it is deemed reasonable, a refund will be issued. Endless Mountains Hot Air Balloons, Inc. reserves the right to retain a $75.00 processing fee of your deposit.
