This Hot Air Balloon ride is a luxurious and unforgettable treat, made all the more special with a glass of bubbly to mark the special occasion! Float on up to Cloud 9 with this wonderful hot air balloon flight. There is no transport on earth as romantic, whimsical and beautiful as the hot air balloon. They look incredibly beautiful while floating through the sky - well, here's your opportunity to enjoy the view from the other side! You will get the chance to gaze over the lovely British countryside from a truly incredible vantage point - a basket 2000ft up in the air!On the day of your chosen flight you will start by meeting the pilot and crew. There will be a short flight safety briefing and you will then help to prepare inflate the balloon, once all final checks have been completed you will be invited to climb into the basket and prepare for take off. It will often be incredibly smooth, and you probably won't even realize you've actually left the ground until you notice people and places getting ever smaller. It will be peaceful, with the occasional roar of the burners to keep you at altitude. After about an hour of flight time you will prepare for landing, which mightn't be quite as smooth as take off! You will finish off the experience by helping the crew to pack away the balloon, and return to the start point. You will end this fantastic experience by enjoying a Champagne Toast with a commemorative flight certificate presentation.
