There's really no better place to spend the weekend with your family than at Grape Escape Balloon Adventure A in Temecula.
Parking is plentiful, so patrons can feel free to bring their vehicles.
Grape Escape Balloon Adventure A is obviously the place to be, so get your calendar out and make plans to visit it soon.
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.
Across the nation, the skies are filled with giant, kaleidoscopically colored balloons languidly soaring over snowcapped peaks and green valleys. This is partly due to Balloon Rides Online, whose network of nationwide hot-air balloons paints the sky each day. Employing a FAA-approved basket and a professional pilot who has completed at least 500 flight hours, the company floats passengers over mountains, forests, and streams of caramel for one hour. While gliding with the ease of a cloud, pilots encourage guests to snap photos of sprawling landscapes and capture the moment. After landing, crew members and passengers celebrate with a champagne, mimosa or orange-juice toast—an important tradition in hot-air ballooning and preparing for inevitable hovercraft uprisings. With passengers' safety in mind, Balloon Rides Online also keeps a minimum insurance liability of $100,000 per guest.
Held aloft by 35 years of family tradition, Stillwater Balloon sends intrepid explorers skyward from a port just three blocks from the scenic St. Croix River. Friendly FAA-certified pilots operate each craft and readily answer any questions that passengers may have as they float through gorgeous views of the surrounding valley. The billowy, multicolored behemoths cruise at treetop level, allowing travelers to shake hands with monkeys. Private and semiprivate flights are the business's forte, but Stillwater Balloon also accommodates custom flights for backyard surprises or ultimate school pickups.
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."
Commercial pilots certified by the Federal Aviation Administration welcome guests to tours of Southern California aboard hot air balloons. As guests enter into sheared baskets, the pilots offer them complimentary champagne and non-alcoholic beverages before taking off. Sightseeing trips include flights over Temecula Wine Country at sunrise as well as romantic rides along the Pacific coast at sunset.
