Keep a Backup Plan in Mind for Special Occasions

As much as we want you to celebrate a big milestone in the skies with us, we need to warn you to have a backup plan. Since we’re at the mercy of the winds and weather, there are times where we suddenly have to reschedule your ride with around 24 hours notice. If this were to happen to you, we want to make sure you have a backup plan in place for the special day, just in case of a cancellation. You can always reschedule the ride with us for a date that works, and then enjoy celebrating your momentous occasion twice! 

Should I Book a Sunrise Ride or a Sunset Ride?

You can book a two-person hot air balloon ride for the sunrise hour or the sunset hour. Either way works for us! You’ll just need to book in advance and see what times we have available. People tend to think the sunset rides seem more romantic, so it’s our most popular option and it gets booked up fast, but the sunrise rides are beautiful too! If you’re both morning people, don’t shy away from a sunrise flight. They’re amazing.

What Days Are Available to Book a Hot Air Balloon Ride for Two?

We have hot air balloon rides for two available to book 7 days a week during peak ballooning season (June-August). You have the option of choosing a weekday ride (Mon-Th) or a weekend ride (Fri, Sat, Sun). Keep in mind that since weekend rides are a more popular option, you will be more likely to get a successful booking if you are open to taking a ride on Monday through Thursday.

When you call us at 312-820-9148 to set up your booking, we will ask you which day of the week you prefer. Bookings will be taken on a first-come first-served basis, according to what we have available. Call today!

What Are the Age Requirements?

For safety considerations, we require participants to be at least 10 years of age. There is no maximum age requirement, but participants must be physically able to get in and out of the balloon basket by themselves. See more in our FAQs here.

Weather Considerations

Successful hot air balloon rides depend on pristine weather conditions. If our crew sees that the weather will be too windy on the day of your ride, or that storms will be approaching, we will contact you to reschedule your booking.

No one wants to see you have a successful ride more than us, so we only reschedule when there are safety concerns regarding the weather, and we always attempt to get you rescheduled as close as possible to the original date you selected. See more about the weather on our Frequently Asked Questions page here.

Departure and Pickup Location

Our departure location is approximately 100 miles north of the Chicago Loop. Since it depends slightly on the wind, the exact departure location for your hot air balloon ride will be confirmed over the phone during your booking and/or in your confirmation email. If you have any questions before your ride, or even on the day of your ride, please call us at 312-820-9148 and we will help get you to the right place.
