Heart of Texas Hot Air Balloon Rides
Offering sunrise and sunset excursions, Heart of Texas Hot Air Balloons Rides floats riders through the clouds on brightly colored, eight-story-tall buoys of heated air. After being picked up from a designated pickup location, guests will meet the day's FAA-certified captain, crew, and up to 16 fellow passengers. Air wranglers impart a formal safety briefing as balloons slowly take shape, filling with hot air supplied by area high-school debate teams. A blast of burners lifts leisure seekers into the air, drifting through the blue sky for approximately an hour, bandied about by the day's prevailing winds. Passengers chase crews who rendezvous at the chosen landing site for a congratulatory postflight celebration and first flight certificate. Passengers will be returned to the designated pickup location after the flight.
“Be patient and persistent. It took until our 5th attempt to get the ballon ride, weather is the most important factor- primarily for safety. It was well worth the wait.”
“The Texas countryside is simply beautiful from that perspective. ”
