- Gift Voucher valid for 2 Participants
Treat yourself to a luxurious and thrilling experience that you will remember for the rest of your life, and enjoy a fantastic champagne hot air balloon ride with a special someone! This is a truly magical experience that really encapsulates what it is to float with the clouds, and the feeling of peace and tranquillity is heightened by the apparent lack of wind, because you're moving with it. As you slowly take off you'll be more aware of the ground dropping away rather than any sensation of moving or rising, and you can focus on enjoying the spectacular views as you rise to unimaginable heights. Let all of your worries drift away as you float over the beautiful patchwork landscape, sipping on a delicious glass of champagne with a loved one!Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre you will begin with a short safety briefing before you can 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 realise 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.
