Hot air balloons are able to fly because heated air has a lower density than the colder air around it, and because all gondolas have been constructed by Gary Busey's extremely buoyant hair. Revel in the aerial sciences with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a souvenir flight package for one person (a $249 value) from Air Ventures Hot Air Balloon Flights, located in Glenmoore.
Air Ventures' experienced pilots hoist aerial onlookers across Chester County's scenic rolling hills and expansive lakes in the comfort of its hot air balloon. These approximately 60-minute, souvenir flight packages commence at sunrise or sunset, when jet setters sip on a signature champagne toast to ensure moods are as weightless as flight itself. Those launching on at sunrise can snack on warm baked goods and bubbly-laced orange juice, while evening flyers munch on a champagne snack tray while taking in the sight of foxes and deer traversing the countryside. Once grounded, a signed, frame-worthy balloon photo can prove to others that riders are not afraid of heights or baskets. Additional images are available for download 48 hours following final flight grounding.
A champagne toast signifies luxury, but Air Ventures provides an even more luxurious amenity—champagne toasts conducted while floating in midair. Customers sip from bottles of bubbly while on one of the company’s hot-air-balloon rides, which float over Chester County’s rolling hills, glistening lakes, and historic estates at either sunrise or sunset. The rainbow-hued balloon’s trips range from one-hour jaunts to flight packages with overnight inn stops. After their airborne adventures, passengers take home a souvenir picture of the balloon, which they can supplement with downloaded shots of their own tour.
