Details

This Weekday Hot Air Balloon Experience will have you flying high in a magical setting, with great launch sites across the UK. First thing you will do is meet the pilot for a pre-flight safety discussion before helping to inflate and prepare the balloon for flight. Once you and the crew has everything is ready, it is time to jump into the basket set off into the sky.

 

You can marvel at the views while enjoying your Weekday Hot Air Balloon Experience and the balloon will glide through the clouds. As the balloon moves in unison with the wind, you have a smooth and breeze free ride in the basket. All the operators vary slightly, with some providing a slightly longer ride and some offer a glass of Champagne on landing. Flights are available weekdays from March/April to October/November. Get booked in quickly as they do fill very fast.

NEED TO KNOW

Weekdays (Not included Bank Holidays) from March/April to October/November at most venues. Flights take place at dawn or dusk, when the air is most stable. Dates fill very quickly, so book at least four weeks in advance.

Maximum weight 18 stone. Minimum height 4'6''. Minimum age is 8. Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult. Ballooning isn't suitable for pregnant women. Any medical conditions must be declared in advance.

Ballooning is extremely weather dependent - it is crucial to call the venue before the flight. If postponed, an alternative date and location can be arranged (please contact the operator for information).

Actual flight length is determined by conditions on the day. The experience normally lasts around three hours, including one hour for inflating the balloon and one hour for packing the balloon away and returning to the launch site.

Share the balloon with between 8 -16 other flyers, plus a qualified pilot.

Spectators are welcome to watch the launch and wave you off. A pair of binoculars or a camera will come in handy.

Wear trousers, long sleeves and sensible footwear (no high heels please). Please avoid loose scarves or jewellery. Bring a hat - the heat from the burner overhead can be intense. Launch and landing sites can be muddy.
