Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

How many passengers are fit inside the basket/cabin on any one flight? What is the maximum number & minimum number? How many person reservations do you take for any one particular flight?

Scott C.  asked on  Jan 21, 2013

A:

The balloon can carry 800 lbs of passengers plus the pilot. Their basket can typically carry 4-5 passengers comfortably. Each Groupon will cover two people. If you purchase 2 Groupons to accommodate a group of 4 people at the same time, they typically wouldn't add a 5th person to your ride.

Q:

Which is the better time for balloon ride...morning or evening?

Lisa T.  asked on  Jan 24, 2013

A:

Sometimes the mornings can be more predictable as far as weather goes. Other than that, both are equally great.

Q:

I have a family of 5 combined weight under 800lbs how can I take advantage of this groupon so we can all ride together?

Jeanine W.  asked on  Jan 24, 2013

A:

You would need to buy two Groupons and pay for the 5th person. We would be willing to charge you $120 for the additional person which would have to be pre-paid to Infinity & Beyond.

Q:

Why is this "semi-private"? If I get a groupon for my wife and I, would there be anyone else with us apart for the pilot?! Thanks

Nicolas D.  asked on  Jan 23, 2013

A:

It is Semi-private because there would be other passengers in the basket.

Q:

Just to be clear, this group on is valid for a balloon flight up until August 31, 2013? Also, the flight would be booked directly with the balloon company?

Casey C.  asked on  Jan 22, 2013

A:

Every voucher has an expiration date. That would be the date the Groupon value will expire. The Fine Print states that it expires Aug. 1. But I have seen vouchers in the past that have varying expiration dates. So you would need to go by the date on the voucher. Yes, the flight is booked directly through Infinity & Beyond.

Q:

Hi, Just to be clear, as long as the weight of the 2 people per Groupon does not exceed 800 lbs, there is no weight limit per person, right? I'm guessing that they would ask passenger weights when reservations are made, and combine them with others who would total less than 800 lbs. Thanks; this looks like fun!

Alice A.  asked on  Jan 21, 2013

A:

That is correct. There is no weight limit per person. We do ask the combined weight of all passengers. We do not schedule more than 800 lbs of passengers per flight.

Q:

This offering says it is limited to 1 Groupon plus one as a gift, but in the Q&A people are talking about getting more for a whole family. Can the parents use one Groupon and by a second as a gift for the 2 kids?

Charley B.  asked on  Jan 21, 2013

A:

Yes, you purchase one Groupon for yourself and a guest, and a second Groupon as a gift for 2 additional guests. The limit of 1 Groupon per person means that the same person wouldn't be able to use 2 different Groupons for themselves.

Q:

Can this groupon be used for a family ride? 2 Adults and 2 kids? If so, any restrictions on kids ages?

Padma  asked on  Jan 21, 2013

A:

You could definitely purchase 2 Groupons to accommodate a group of 4 people. According to their FAQ, "The minimum age requirement is six years old, there is no maximum age restriction."
