Imagine floating with the dancing wind, somewhere between the treetops and the clouds, a unique experience that airplanes and helicopters can't capture. An FAA-licensed pro pilots Sun Dancer, which lives up to its name as it waltzes amid the tranquil breezes and the sun‘s gentle rays. Hot air balloons launch at either sunrise or shortly before sunset, weather permitting. Sunrise flights are more peaceful, sometimes with a hint of fog hovering below, while sunset flights are more lively, sometimes flying low enough to chat with pedestrians on the ground recently diagnosed with an incurable case of gravity. While flying, customers might see the Chattahoochee River, Lake Lanier, Stone Mountain, Atlanta’s skyline, the Appalachian Foothills, and wildlife scurrying through trees and tall grass. Flights last up to an hour, but Magic Carpet Ride suggests planning for up to four hours, as attendees assist with bringing Sun Dancer to life, then enjoy a post-flight champagne celebration.

Stuart Enloe has logged some serious time in the sky. He's spent more than 200 hours in gas balloons, performed more than 80 parachute jumps, flew for 600 hours in airplanes, and totaled a whopping 2,700 hours in hot-air balloons. In total, he has spent enough time in the air to justify carving a second home into a cloud—more than 145 days.
At his main aerial outlet, Balloon Atlanta, Stuart carries this experience with him on every flight. He maintains a fleet of colorful hot-air balloons, available for scenic flights over some of the Southeast's most stunning landscapes. His passengers float over Lake Lanier, just barely skimming the surface, or sail up until mountains frame the warm light of sunset and set the scene for a romantic kiss or engagement. Regardless of which route he follows, a dedicated crew follows on the ground to pack away equipment and provide passengers a ride back to the starting point once the balloon lands.
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.
