Imagine floating with the dancing wind, somewhere between the treetops and the clouds, a unique experience that airplanes and helicopters can't capture. An FAA-licensed pro pilots Sun Dancer, which lives up to its name as it waltzes amid the tranquil breezes and the sun?s gentle rays. Hot air balloons launch at either sunrise or shortly before sunset, weather permitting. Sunrise flights are more peaceful, sometimes with a hint of fog hovering below, while sunset flights are more lively, sometimes flying low enough to chat with pedestrians on the ground recently diagnosed with an incurable case of gravity. While flying, customers might see the Chattahoochee River, Lake Lanier, Stone Mountain, Atlanta?s skyline, the Appalachian Foothills, and wildlife scurrying through trees and tall grass. Flights last up to an hour, but Magic Carpet Ride suggests planning for up to four hours, as attendees assist with bringing Sun Dancer to life, then enjoy a post-flight champagne celebration.
