Dress for ground temperature. It will not be any colder during your flight. We recommend jeans and athletic shoes. Open toed shoes such as sandals or flip flops and high heels are not recommended.

Flights last approximately one hour.

How high and how far will we go?

A typical balloon flight is from tree top level to 2000 or 3000 feet above ground level. The distance traveled depends on the wind speed the day of the flight.
