My wife and i are coming there over Mother's day weekend. I am from Albuquerque originally and went to the first ever baloon fiesta there ever was. We have never been up. A good bucket list. Since we are only there over the weekend, would need Friday, Saturday or Sunday. May 10, 11 opr 12. please advise before i purchase. can only go those days.

A:

Larry, We can't guarantee that any specific date is available prior to scheduling. Holiday weekends fill up VERY quickly and all flight reservations are on a first come first served basis. While there are openings right now, they likely won't last long and I expect to end up turning people away who wait too long to schedule as we do for most holiday weekends. Additionally, I would never recommend buying a groupon when you only have a couple days to fly. All flights are weather dependent and are on a first come first served basis and rescheduling due to weather can't be guaranteed.

Q:

We are having a conference in Albuquerque in September. Some members of the Council would like to take a hot-air balloon ride. Most of us will arrive on September 20 so would be available to take a ride on Saturday, September 21 or Sunday, September 22. I see this offer expires in 90 days after purchase. Would you be able to extend this offer to our group. There are 28 of us on the council but I would have to verify who would want to take the ride. We were there in January and booked the ride a couple different times but it was too windy during those times.

A:

Unfortunately, we can't extend the groupons beyond their expiration date.

A:

I should have also added though, we would absolutely love to have you come join us. We just can't do it by extending the groupons. Please feel free to give us a call when you know how many would like to go.

Q:

My brother and his wife are coming to Abq around Mother's Day and they would like to have a ride. If we buy this now, will there be available reservations on either Thursday, May the 8th or Friday the 9th or the 10th?

Linda W.  asked on  Apr 17, 2013

A:

It completely depends upon availability on any given day. As of now there is some room on those days, but not much. I would absolutely recommend that if you are going to purchase this you schedule as soon as you receive the groupon. Remember, you must schedule at least 2 weeks in advance, and groupons are only valid for the number of passengers listed and no gaurantees can be made that multiple groupons can fly on the same day or in the same balloon.

Q:

We are visiting family in May. There are a total of 6 adults. Can we purchase 6 groupons and ride together?

Gary S.  asked on  Apr 17, 2013

A:

Hi Gary, the groupons are for either 1 person or 2 people only and each groupon is treated as a separate reservation. So in short, we are unable to guarantee that you would all be in the same balloon or even on the same day. It just depends upon the schedule and availability that day. Additionally, remember that groupon reservations must be made at least 2 weeks in advance.
