ON PICTURES TO MAKE LARGER
| Our season
begins in April and last through November. We offer two flights
a day, morning flights (about one hour after sunrise) and early
evening flights (about two hours before sunset). This is when conditions
are most favorable for ballooning. All balloon flights are weather
permitting. On average a balloon ride last approximately one hour.
We suggest you allow up to four hours for the whole excursion.
| Dress in
comfortable, casual clothing in accordance with the temperature
of the day. You won't be much warmer or cooler during the flight
then you would be on the ground. You should also choose footwear
that is suitable for walking through country fields. For morning
flights the fields are sometimes wet with dew so waterproof footwear
| We provide
transportation to and from the pickup point, which is the McDonald's, at exit 18 off I-87. It's about 15 miles south of Lake George. If you have GPS the address is192 Corinth Rd, Queensbury, NY 12804
basket can hold four to five passengers per flight. If you have more
than five people interested in going up, we would have to get a second balloon. Both balloons would then take off at same location. See our Balloon
Rides section for discounts on larger groups.
| Cameras and camcorders make a balloon ride
a much more memorable experience, that you can share with friends
and family long after the flight. Cameras and camcorders are welcome
and encouraged, but please remember space is limited on board.
| We begin
our adventure by picking you up at the McDonald's, at exit 18 off I-87. We then bring you to
our launch site, which will be determined by the direction the wind
is blowing. At this point, if your interested in learning more about
ballooning, you can help us in the set up and inflation process
of the balloon. If not interested, then you can just watch and or
take pictures while we inflate the balloon in front of you. We then
take you on about a one hour balloon flight. Which if you've never
been before is like nothing you've ever experienced. It's now time
to land the balloon where we have champagne and or beverages(soda,
juice, water) waiting for you. We then deflate and pack up the balloon
and take you back to the location we picked you up from. Thus completing
your adventure with us.
