Sky Drifters Hot Air Balloon group rides are a great and affordable way to get in the air above the Sacramento Valley. We do our best to create a fun and exciting environment for everyone in the basket.
Unlike your typical “romantic” flight, where the pilot tries to been seen or heard as little as possible, group rides are all about having fun. The pilot is full of good flying stories, jokes, and is there to have a good time with the balloon passengers.
Unlike larger commercial ride companies, we limit the number of passengers to provide a more personal ride experience for you and your family. Tell your pilot what kind of experience you are looking for and we will do our best to provide a memorable ride. We follow every flight with a French Champagne toast and a quick history of ballooning, after which you will be safely returned to our original meeting place.Expect the balloon ride and post-flight picnic to last three to four hours. Upon occasion we do run late. Please let us know of any potential scheduling conflicts before the flight. We will do our best to get you back on time.
Costs are based on the number of people flying. Flying with friends is more affordable and exciting, but if you are booking a single person you must pick a day others are flying to ensure you get the date you choose. We also offer a stand-by option if you are local to the area. Call for details. Prices effective March 2012.
