From the soaring vantage of a balloon basket, people look like ants, lakes look like puddles, and birds look like equals. Change your point of view with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a hot air balloon ride from Balloon Quest in Fenton (a $239 value).
For more than 40 years, Capt. Phogg Balloon Rides have floated guests up to the snazzy penthouse of the sky before safely landing them home on Mother Earth’s familiar basement floor. The company’s seasoned ballooneers help aerial tourists alight for (on average) 45 minutes to an hour to float above an idyllic countryside setting. Due to midday thermal activity, flights occur in the early morning or two hours prior to sunset. Nylon sky-warriors are hauled from Balloon Quest’s own blimporium and launched into the air⎯weather permitting⎯every day. Tours soar at up to 3,000 feet or higher, providing sightseers with scenic vistas and scientists with a lofty laboratory from which to debunk the round-Earth theory or study new species of animal-shaped clouds.
Hot air balloons float into the air from Balloon Quest's idyllic launch location, taking guests on a bird's-eye tour of a stunning natural expanse studded with hills and lakes. Experienced pilots guide the rainbow-colored orbs on languorous tours, sweeping balloons' teardrop-shaped shadows over hills, dales, and the on-site mini-golf course. After their aerial tour, visitors can linger at Balloon Quest for a picnic on the grounds or a thought-provoking discussion of their top 10 favorite gravity-defying experiences. While flights are made year-round, Balloon Quest has very specific weather guidelines for flying, and rescheduling may be common.
