What is a Hot Air Balloon Ride?
A Hot Air Balloon consists of a bag (the balloon), known as the 'envelope', which is a where all the hot air is held. Hanging below is a gondola or a wicker basket which is where the passengers are held, as well as the source of heat which is an open flame – but don't worry, it's perfectly safe! The heat then inflates this big balloon and then it's up, up and away for a hot air balloon ride experience you will never forget!
What to Expect on your Hot Air Balloon Experience
Hot Air Balloon experiences are tranquil, relaxing and an experience of a lifetime. You can expect a preparation and greeting with your pilot, where he/she will take you through a summary of what will be happening. You will be taken through a flight briefing, outlining the important safety information for the flight, as well as flight information such as flight duration, and which direction you'll be flying in.
Once all the briefing is complete, the pilot will start to apply cold air to the balloon and then once ready will apply heat and you will start to majestically lift off into the sky. As the people on the ground gradually get smaller and smaller, you will start to appreciate the magical and effortless flight over the stunning countryside with no engine and no sudden movements so you can truly relax and take in the breath-taking views.
