Head to new heights with this sensational hot air ballooning experience, which is exclusive to two people. Kick off by meeting your experienced pilot for a briefing on safety before helping the crew to inflate and get the balloon ready for the flight. Once prepared, hop into the basket for lift-off and embark on a flying adventure like no other. Soar to heights of up to 3,000 feet, taking in stunning panoramic views of the sky and landscape below, as the balloon effortlessly glides through the clouds. Upon landing, help the crew to pack the ballooning equipment away before toasting a memorable flight with a celebratory glass of champagne or soft drink. At the end, get taken back to the original launch site and each receive a souvenir flight certificate.
