Imagine soaring into the vast horizon. A gentle breeze guides you over wandering hills and sweeping valleys below. The allure of flight captured the minds of great inventors and explorers for centuries, until one day, hot air balloons finally graced the elusive skies. We’ve come so far since then, but the nostalgic joy of hot air ballooning is as grand now as was back then.
Last weekend was the annual Autumn Aloft Festival here in Park City. Spectators delighted in the wondrous display as hundreds of colorful hot air balloons launched into the skies at once. If you attended the event, then perhaps you wondered how you too, could sail through the clouds.
Fortunately, Park City is home to several trusted balloon ride tour services that specialize in the art of balloon adventures. Rides are available all year round, weather permitting. That being said, the best time to take to the skies is from May through October. We’re still in the midst of hot air balloon season.
Here’s how it works at Park City Balloon Adventures:
Step 1: Call our front desk team at 435-658-9500. We will personally schedule your preferred day and time at the best available rate.
Step 2: On the day of, your hot air balloon team will escort you to the launch site. Launch sites regularly change, and are determined each morning based on wind report patterns.
Step 3: Lift off! Your expert pilot will guide you on the ride of a lifetime. Enjoy the gorgeous views from your own private balloon.
Step 4: Soar wherever the wind carries you. Not even the pilot knows where the balloon will land. He must telephone his crew for pick-up once it drifts down for landing.
Step 5: Conclude your adventure with a bottle of champagne (or bubbly alternative), a personal certificate of flight, and lasting memories from your once-in-a-lifetime trip!
