What You'll Get
A hot air balloon functions by assembling carefully engineered canvas, a large wicker basket, and several canisters filled with the blustery rants of politicians and sportscasters. Harness the anti-gravitational power of articulated nonsense with today's Groupon: for $169, you get one hot air balloon ride from Sportations (up to a $300 value). Flights will take place with Virginia Balloons and depart from various locations around Williamsburg and the Shenandoah Valley, depending on weather conditions. Travelers going to Williamsburg will have the option of staying at KOA’s Premier Lodging; reservation may be made at redemption, additional charges apply.
Sportations, one of the largest adventure-sports providers in the United States, gives air-ready revelers a new way to view Virginia with hot air balloon rides. With flights leaving at sunrise, altitude seekers will have the opportunity to take in stunning vistas as they watch the city come alive. Flyers will share their basket with a courteous professional pilot and several similarly minded gravitational dissidents and will be free to wave to passing birds, take in the view, and grab onto drops of light making their way back home to the sun. The staff at Sportations prides itself on customer service and on amassing extreme-sports providers from all over the country in one place. Allow them to take care of the details of your earth-bound journey while you contemplate why ants look so much like humans when viewed from above.

Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.
