Hot Air Ballooning Take a champagne flight :)

 Have you ever looked up to see a hot air balloon drifting silently overhead? With this experience it will be you in the basket of the balloon, looking down. :) 
First, with your feet still firmly on the ground, you will meet your pilot and get a flight safety briefing, before helping to prepare and inflate the balloon. Then you will climb into the basket ready for launching. You will fly at heights of up to 5,000 feet, enjoying beautiful views of the countryside below, and the restful peace and quiet (except for when the propane burners are going, that is).
Because the balloon moves with the wind, you will feel no wind at all, just sheer enjoyment. After landing you can help the crew pack the balloon away, before a celebratory glass of champagne (or a soft drink) and being driven back to the launch site (who knows where you will land? - you can't steer balloons!).
You will be presented with a commemorative flight certificate, and some centres also offer the chance to purchase an in-flight photo.
  • Help inflate the balloon ready for launching
  • Pure peace and tranquillity, drifting along at heights of up to 3,000 feet
  • Bird's-eye views of the British countryside from the basket
  • After landing, toast your flight with a glass of champagne
