    A very professional and safety conscious company that does its best to ensure that you have the best possible ride. All the staff was very pleasant and professional and the whole experience was very well handled, from the making the reservation to the return. The pilot was very competent, pleasant and amusing, but also did a thorough safety briefing and took the time to explain every step, point out landmarks of interest, and answer questions. The landing was extremely smooth. Something to remember - if your children can barely see over the basket or have a short attention span, they might not enjoy it as much as the adults. Glad we did this. A lot of fun!

    Orlando Balloon Rides is great! Mark was our pilot and very nice. The other employees and chase crew are wonderful also. This was our 5th attempt due to Mother Nature not allowing us to fly and after finally doing it I can understand why there are such serious precautions taken. It was a present for my mom for her 60th birthday and was definitely a bucket list moment for us all.

    Great to experience a baloon flight while in Orlando despite the early start. It is lovely to see the dawn and the country side from the ground up to 3,000 feet.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Orlando Balloon Rides

    After purchase, do I need to set-up a reservation date?
    Yes, after purchase, you will need to call the phone number listed on your E-ticket voucher to set-up a flight date/time.

    Where do the flights take place?
    Our flights are in the Disney area. They can take place anywhere from Disney to Highway 192 and Highway 27 depending on wind direction.

    Where and when do we meet?
    We meet approximately one hour before sunrise. This can be anywhere from 5:30 am to 6:30 am at the intersection of Interstate 4 and Highway 27. From Interstate 4 take Highway 27 (Exit 55) and go north. Stay in the left lane and take the very first left turn towards McDonalds and Wendy’s. Our location is on the right hand side just past these restaurants.

    Are there any restrictions as to whom can fly?
    Health restrictions are few and far between. Unfortunately, due to insurance restrictions, we cannot fly pregnant women or children under 4.

    What type of weather conditions are needed to fly?
    Hot Air Balloon passenger flights take place in winds less than 10 knots, with no rain or approaching storms in the immediate area. Flights also require visibility of at least 2.5 miles.

    What should I wear?
    Dress as if you were going on a hike in the woods. NO OPENED TOED SHOES. We always suggest practical wear, such as long pants, a light jacket, a hat and no sandals or high heels. It is not any cooler in the balloon than it is on the ground, so we suggest dressing for that particular day’s weather.

    What can I bring along?
    Feel free to bring along a camera and binoculars to record this once in a lifetime experience. We recommend also bringing extra batteries and a protective camera case.

    How high do we go?
    Though the altitude record for hot air ballooning is 90,000 feet, the height of passenger flights ranges anywhere from treetops up to 2,500 feet.

    How fast do we fly?
    The balloon travels the same speed as the wind. An average flight is approximately 7 miles in length.

    Can anyone fly the balloon?
    No. To fly a hot air balloon you must be a licensed balloon pilot. Much like a fixed wing pilot, balloon pilots go through extensive training including ground school, written exams, and hands-on flying.

    Will I be affected if I suffer from motion sickness?
    No. As the balloon moves with the wind, there is none of this sensation. A balloon flight is so calm, it is possible to set a glass of water on a table in a balloon and not spill a drop.

    How long is the flight?
    Most flights are about an hour. However, they can be as short as 45 minutes or as long as 1 hour and 45 minutes. It just depends on weather conditions and landing sites.

    What can cause the cancellation of a flight?
    As safety of the passengers, crew, and equipment is of utmost priority, flights will sometimes have to be canceled. Various factors can cause cancellation such as weather conditions, equipment malfunction or pilot injury or illness. Your safety is our concern and we will not fly if this is jeopardized. If your flight is canceled, simply reschedule for another flight.
