Seasoned pilots guide passengers through the air for about 1 hour, departing either a half-hour before sunrise or 2.5 hours before sunset. However, customers should expect the full experience to last up to 4 hours, including time for check-in, travel to the launch location, a safety briefing, setup and packing, and return to the meeting location. Customers may add flying partners by purchasing additional Groupons. Upon registration, each flier receives an information packet and the flight's meeting location. In the event of poor flying conditions, Sundance Balloons reschedules rides for future fair-weather mornings or evenings.

This offer does not expire until summer 2014, so Groupons may be purchased as holiday gifts, and then redeemed in the spring, when the weather warms.

Sundance Balloons

Sundance Balloons' vibrant hot-air balloons float adventurous passengers over scenic landscapes. Each one-hour journey commences as sojourners greet their flight crew at a pre-determined location, receive a briefing on what to expect during the excursion, and observe their balloon as it swells to more than 10 stories in height.

The woven gondolas glide 1,000 feet above the ground but can sometimes gently skim treetops or cornfields when wandering over the countryside. Since balloons drift with prevailing winds, there is no wind chill and travellers feel only a slight sensation of movement. As is tradition for ballooning, explorers of the appropriate age end their flight with a champagne toast to tranquility, beauty, and neighbourhoods that appear as giant smiley faces only visible from the air.
