Stillwater mn Minnesota hot air balloon ride flight adventure Saint croix river valley
Q: I have a fetish for snow globes... what do you think?
A: Cool. We kind of have a thing for them too - only, we like to think big... really big. Imagine soaring over crystalline landscaping, the ground and roadways blanketed in white, every tree and chimney sparkling under the sun's early rays. If you're perpetually blessed, snow may still be silently falling about the balloon. Leaves are no more, so you will be able to see the wildlife darting through the sparse forest. Snuggling will be on the increase, and, with the snow absorbing ambient noise, peace reigns. Winter flights are amazing... really amazing. We think, "Yes!"
Q: I am pregnant, can I still take a hot air balloon flight?
A: No. Although ballooning is most commonly gentle and safe, there are instances where the landing is a bit more jarring. While this landing would cause no lasting harm to other adults in the craft, it could damage the placenta and thus be dangerous for mom and baby. We believe that pregnancy is an incredible miracle and would like to help you protect your baby against even the most unlikely of circumstances. We would be happy to take you flying after your baby is born - bring pictures!
Q: How do I change or cancel my reservations? What if I do not show up for my flight?
A: Twenty four hour notice is required for weekdays and forty-eight hour notice for weekend and holiday flights. Any cancellation not abiding by these policies will result in a fee of $50 per certificate prior to rescheduling. If you do not show up for your scheduled flight, there will be a $100 charge per certificate at the time of scheduling your next date. (Note, Groupon certificates have different guidelines, please refer to your certificates for more information.)
Q: Tipping, I never know what to do about tipping... tell me.
A: Wow, awkward. Tipping is present in most tourism and service industries. Offering balloon flights fits in here, so offering a gratuity would be acceptable. Additionally, tipping is nice. If you think that your pilot and crew were nice... go for it. That said, there is no sense of expectation or obligation... the situation is unique and we are easy! If you do decide to consider a tip, we are firm believers in earning not only your patronage, trust, and respect, but also any gratuities that you may offer. If you do not feel that our crew members surpassed your expectations... don't tip.
Q: I purchased certificates but was then mauled by a bear who whispered in my ear... "Don't take the flight..." Now I feel nervous. Can I get a refund?
A: Wow, we feel your pain (kind of). But, no matter how sad the story, no refunds... ever. We also cannot combine certificates; each flight certificate stands on it's own (unlike wolves, which travel in packs, I would watch out for them too). Finally (as long as I am throwing out cautions), since our certificates are fully transferable, you need to treat them like cash. Whoever holds the certificates can take flight, and if nobody is holding the certificates (big sigh) nobody takes flight. So, what I am saying is, the bear was only trying to intimidate you to get you to loosen your grip on the certificates (stinkin' tricky bears). Way to go! You win! Now... come fly with us.
Around the World in a Relatively Decent Chunk of Time
Travel Phileas Fogg–style in a hot air balloon. Here are some tips for recreating Jules Verne's fantastical scenario:
You can never bring too many dashing chapeaus.
Twinkies never go stale, but they will send passing geese into a frenzied breeding rage.
Don't drop Faberge eggs over Belgium; they have no sense of humor.
If you don't see dry land for 30 minutes, you're already dead.
Remember, no one can see you cry up there, and your father's criticisms will never float as high as your dreams.
(...someone silly wrote this for me... don't think too hard, just laugh)
