Murray and the team would ensure you participate in all stages of the experience-from inflating the balloon to swooshing it back into a bag.

A great experience. Taking off is easy. Landing quite a challenge. Flying, thrilling. Randy the navigator and his crew were most affable and helpful. After the ride we had a great brunch doused with Mimosas. Cost effective for sure. Way to go ballooning!

My husband and I are looking at taking a hot air balloon ride on our upcoming New Mexico trip...I am worried about the landing part - is it very scary? Has anyone been hurt? Reading the disclaimer has made me very anxious as New Mexico is only the beginning of our vacation and we will be doing a lot of other driving/sightseeing in other states.
