The Hot Air Balloon Flight Weekday Morning experience is a great value ballooning ride where you will experience the awesome thrill and peaceful serenity of a balloon ride. A balloon flight is an experience you will truly never forget!
When you meet on the launch site you will be checked in by our groundcrew. After the passenger safety briefings are completed the hot air balloon will be prepared and as part of the experience you can if you wish help the crew with the inflation, when all the final safety checks are complete the adventure begins.
Also included is a champagne toast.
All of our gift experiences are presented in an attractive red case with "Congratulations - you are the lucky recipient of a Well Wicked experience day" written on the front. You will also get a DVD featuring many of our experiences. Experience vouchers can be personalised if required.
Balloon flights will probably be with a group of between 5-16 other passengers.
Wind direction, weather conditions and operational constraints may restrict your flight and flights may be cancelled on the day, however you will be able to re-book for a mutually convenient date.
Spectators are welcome to watch the inflation and launch of the balloon, and it may also be possible to follow the flight in their own vehicle if they wish. Please ask them to speak to the Retrieve Crew on the day of the flight.
