Q:

If you can't guarantee getting three people on a flight together, then we can't buy it. So sorry.

Deborah B.  asked on  May 23, 2013

A:

I completely understand Deborah. Groupons of this type aren't for everyone. Our standard flights obviously offer much more flexibility. The only way we can possibly afford to offer a groupon at such a discount off of our standard prices, and one that is still fair to everyone that makes the purchase, is if we have very specific terms and conditions that must be followed. Offering the same flexibility as we do with our standard flights simply isn't possible at the prices offered for a groupon. Feel free to call us if you decide in the future to schedule a balloon ride.

Q:

I can't believe that you can't guarantee getting us all on the same flight! Could we get a refund iI purchased the flight and we couldn't schedule us all together?

Deborah B.  asked on  May 22, 2013

A:

Hi Deborah, We try and accommodate grouping requests when they are made, but can't guarantee it. Each groupon purchase is treated by groupon and us as an individual item. We have no way to tie separate purchases together until people call to schedule. We schedule each groupon as an individual passenger or pair of passengers since that is how they are sold. As far as refunds go though, that is up to groupon not us.

Q:

Can I purchase three? I would like to go with my husband and 11 year old daughter.

Deborah B.  asked on  May 22, 2013

A:

Hi Deborah, I believe Groupon allows you to buy one, then another one as a gift. So In theory you could buy one for 2 people, and 1 for one person to cover the 3 and stay within their terms. The only think to remember is that each groupon voucher is independent. We can't guarantee that you will all be in the same balloon or even fly on the same day. Its all based on availability when you call to schedule and the different weights that are in each aircraft.

Q:

...As a Surprise,I would like to purchase a flight for 2 people, my Son and my 8 year old Granddaughter. If my Son can not make it, can I fly in his place with my Granddaughter??? If we do this, we would like to fly early in the season. ...Are Groupon Tickets limited to any days or can we fly at any time you are scheduled to fly? ...Are these A.M. or P.M. flights??? ...Do you fly on Saturdays and Sundays??? ...How many customers do you need to do a flight? ...For the Groupon Customers, what size basket will you use and how many will it hold?? Thanks Bj

Barry J.  asked on  May 20, 2013

A:

Hi Barry, All children must be accompanied on the flight by a parent or legal guardian. Groupons aren't restricted on any specific days. As the deal says, when you call us to schedule, you can schedule for dates beginning two weeks from that date. The can be either AM or PM, but most flights will be AM. We do fly on weekends, but they fill up very quickly, so schedule early, and allow enough time before your groupons expiration date to allow for reschedules if mother nature isn't cooperative on the first attempt. Everything is weather dependent after all and we all know how St. Louis weather goes. A minimum of 4-6 people are required to fly, and depending upon the group size for that day, the balloon could carry 12 people or so. As the deal says, the groupon is for a group flight in a shared basket, and if we don't have enough people going, we would reschedule the flight. If we can help in any other way, please feel free to let us know.

Q:

If I purchased the groupon for 245 dollars for 2 people, would that be a standard flight and get filled with more passengers?

Lynne D.  asked on  May 18, 2013

A:

Hi Lynne, Yes, All Groupons are for group flights so if you buy a Groupon for 2 there will be 8 to 10 other people with you in the balloon.
