Surprise engagements  

A Hot Air balloon is an amazing way to have a surprise engagement. This page will provide some helpful information and guidance about your special flight.
 
1. Hot air balloon rides are VERY WEATHER dependent. If you must get engaged on your flight day please have a back up plan. We will ONLY fly if it is safe to do so and the flight can get canceled all the way up till the time of take off if it's not safe. PLEASE have a backup plan.

 

2. If you want to go above and beyond with your engagement look at booking one of our Romantic Packages. These packages included everything from the private flight to a full picnic (Picnic Pictures) with a professional photographer (all the photos are included with the package)  

  • If you think your flight partner would get suspicious of a photographer when you show up to our meeting site with the other balloons we would advise both of you they are here to get updated marketing photos or any other story you would like us to tell.
     

3. If one of our Romantic Packages is not what you're looking for It's highly recommended to book a private flight to ensure that is just the 2 of you in the balloon. 

4. If the flight is canceled due to bad weather you have the option to reschedule or receive a FULL refund.

5. PLEASE tell us at time of booking that you are planning an engagement. We like to make the day as special as possible and having this information beforehand allows us to do that. Your pilot will be the only one that knows the engagement is happening but this allows us to give you additional cues such as how long is left on the flight or help you capture that special moment.

6. When should I pop the question? There are a few different options here up in the air is always go for the surprise. If you're booking one of the romantic packages you will have the option of having the photographer in the balloon with us to help capture that special moment.
 

  • With our romantic package in front of our picnic set up also makes for a good surprise especially if you think they are expecting it you can throw them off by waiting until we are back at the picnic. Asking the question in front of the picnic also makes for an amazing surprise.


7. You will want to come up with a good excuse to why someone is going to need to wake up at 5am if they don't know they are going on a balloon ride. (Example sunrise hike, sunrise sightseeing, horseback riding) 

8. Please have sensible shoes. We are going to be in a field before sunrise so close toed shoes are recommended.

9. Please make sure they are going to say YES. Otherwise it is a long flight not only for you but your pilot as well.

10. Our flights are around 1hr in length but you will be with us for 3hr from pickup to drop off back at your car. During the flight your pilot may tell you how long till we land (See #5 above).
