What You'll Get
Defying gravity requires moon shoes, a first name preceded by Super, or a few canisters of liquid propane and a large wicker basket. Step inside a world of hot air and bobbing bliss with today's Groupon to Dream Flights USA. Choose from the following options:
- For $140, you get a one-hour weekday hot-air balloon ride (a $280 value).
- For $170, you get one-hour weekend hot-air balloon ride (a $340 value).
Dream Flights USA will scoop up civilians for approximately 60 to 75 minutes of soaring serenity. Though the flight's departure location and path depend on weather conditions and wind patterns, each tour will offer a scenic ride right outside of Louisville, granting passengers a bird's-eye view of gorgeous landscape. The adventure begins with the crew inflating the hot-air balloons in front of the soon-to-be passengers, immersing them in the airborne action to come. Once passengers have loaded on to the balloon's gondola, Dream Flights' pilots will launch the craft into the sky. Bring along a camera to capture your ascent to a place where birds come in V’s and wind dictates direction. All Dream Flights pilots are licensed to fly commercially, with or without balloon assistance, and have decades of experience, rising and falling for 25 years without incident.
Baskets can hold up to 16 people, making this a perfect chance to meet fellow sky seekers or a romantic getaway for married octuplets. Each Groupon is good for one person's entry aboard the futuristic aerovessel, so grab two and bring that special someone, or just one to finally escape them.

About Dream Flights USA
When Richard Arnold bought his first hot air balloon, his dreams for it were humble: he wanted to use it as a flying billboard for his jewelry store. The technicolor balloon caught so much attention, though, that it snowballed into a separate hot air balloon business.
Today, Dream Flights USA offers airborne adventures across the country, and Arnold—who now has more than 25 years of flying experience—is one of its seasoned pilots. He and his team helm bird's-eye-view tours of scenic terrain, celebrity homes, and beautifully maintained crop circles. In accordance with ballooning tradition, pilots and passengers can celebrate each successful tour with a champagne toast.
