Take A Flight

Champagne Flight


Enjoy the picturesque views and peaceful serenity that no other form of flight can offer. The world seems to move beneath your feet as you float with the wind above it all. Typical flights last around one hour once in the air. Once we land you will be treated to a traditional champagne toast to commemorate the occasion (non-alcoholic beverages available upon request). Please allow 2 ½ to 3 hours for the whole adventure from start to finish.

 Private Flight


Whether it’s an anniversary, one of life’s milestones, or any other occasion that you want to share with that one special person, a Private Balloon Flight is the perfect way to celebrate life’s memorable moments. Purchasing a private flight ensures that it’s just the two of you (and of course your pilot) in the basket. This is also a great option if you want to pop the question in style.

Gift Certificates

Gift Certificates are available for the above flights. These are quality printed certificates, not a cheap plastic card.


Foolish Pleasures Hot Air Balloons DOES NOT accept gift certificates from vendors such as Living Social, Groupon, or 1800skyrides. The fact is that most balloon ride operators do not accept these either. Beware of scams from sellers offering Nationwide Gift Certificates, claiming to be in the South Montrose or Montrose area. If your gift certificate doesn’t have Ryan’s signature on it, IT IS NOT VALID.

Tethered Rides

Starting at $875/hour

Share the gift of flight with the masses! Perfect for large gatherings such as reunions, company picnics, and family parties. The balloon will be secured to the ground with several heavy duty ropes which are rigged to allow for assents to around 100 feet. Groups of your guests will get a taste of flight a few minutes at a time as we go up to the top of our tether lines. There are many variables to consider when planning a tethered balloon event. Contact Ryan for more details.

 Cancelation Policy

We can only carry a limited number of passengers at a time, and by making your reservation, you have filled a spot preventing us from making other reservations. In the event that passengers need to cancel a flight, they must contact Foolish Pleasures Hot Air Balloons a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Cancellations less than 48 hours of the meeting time will result in forfeiture of the flight deposit. If a cancellation is made 48 hours or more in advance of the flight, the flight will be rescheduled. No refund will be given.

If the weather does not allow us to fly (a decision determined by the pilot), no refund is offered. However, we will reschedule your flight at a time available to both parties.

We understand that unexpected hardships do occur and will review each circumstance on a case-by-case basis. After a review of the cancellation circumstances and if it is deemed reasonable, a refund will be issued. Foolish Pleasures Hot Air Balloons reserves the right to retain a $75.00 processing fee of your deposit.

More flight information can be found on our Waiver_and_Briefing page.

In order to reserve a date, a deposit of $225 is required.
