Everyone deserves to treat themselves every once in a while so head to Castle Photo and Balloons in Bloomington today and have some fun.
Parking is plentiful, so patrons can feel free to bring their vehicles.
The staff at Adventure Balloon Rides does more than merely steer giant balloons through the sky. As 38-year veterans of the industry and aerostatic technology experts, they also consult for NASA, certify future pilots in their training school, and even make movies and commercials with the help of their in-house special-effects team. For example, they contributed their skills to episodes of Portlandia.
They built their business around sharing their love for flying, though, which is something they still do every day if the weather permits. Their signature flight includes an opportunity to help set up and inflate a balloon before soaring over stunning Californian vistas. After the journey, a champagne toast concludes the trip before they take their guests to the Bomb Shelter Cafe for a full breakfast.
The tours at Skyline Balloons combine Inland Empire's best features: breathtaking views and fine wines. Floating high above the world in vibrantly colored hot-air balloons, guests sip the area's vinos and take in the sights. Led by experienced pilots—who share a passion for flight in all forms—private hot-air-balloon trips are a popular choice for marking such special occasions as anniversaries and graduations. Their high-flying rides make for memorable marriage proposals, too, especially since they promise to not say, "Always the hot-air-balloon pilot, never the bride."
Whether soaring in a hot air balloon or freefalling on a skydive, you’re guaranteed picturesque aerial views at Above the Rest Hot Air Ballooning & Skydiving. On 45–60 minute hot-air-balloon rides, an experienced pilot and up to 10 passengers glide above the earth in a wicker basket, propelled by wind and an occasional flock of friendly geese.
