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 from Dream Flights USA. Choose between two options:

  • For $140, you get a weekday hot air balloon ride for one person (a $280 value).
  • For $170, you get a weekend hot air balloon ride for one person (a $340 value).

Dream Flights USA scoops up civilians at a predetermined location approximately 45 minutes from Memphis for an approximately 60- to 90-minute sampling of soaring serenity. Though the flight's departure location and path depend on weather conditions and wind patterns, each tour offers a scenic ride over Memphis, granting passengers a bird's-eye view of the city's picturesque skyline, Mississippi River scenery, and guardian birdpeople.

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 Vs and wind dictates direction. All Dream Flights pilots are licensed to fly commercially and have decades of experience, rising and falling for 24 years without incident.

Baskets often hold up to 16 people, making this perfect for those who wish to meet fellow sky seekers or for those romantic getaways 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.

You must sign a legal waiver in order to participate. Reservations are required at least 14 days in advance.

Reviews

Though there aren't many online reviews, you can check out enthusiastic video testimonials on Dream Flights USA's website.

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.
