    What to Expect
    Standard basket hot air balloon flight reserves flights for you and your group, maybe with others sharing the same flight in one of our balloons. Pending the number of guests who reserve the same Standard Balloon, your flight maybe with others. 
    Balloon baskets are sized according the number passengers it will carry, from an open sport basket to our compartmentalized ride baskets. (No matter what the basket size each person will have the same cozy space.)  Ride baskets, designed with safety first, feature compartments, higher sides & padded side walls for comfort of our guests as well as providing functionality.  Flights usually originate from our primary location - Warren Co. airport, Lebanon.  Passengers have a bird's eye view of Warren County and surrounding areas. Enjoy complimentary bottle water & celebratory champagne toast available for passengers over 21 post flight with souvenir champagne cups.  Flight certificates & non-alcoholic sparking are available upon request.
    This is not an exclusive basket – maybe with other passengers - required minimum bookings confirms flights.
