- The most elegant form of sightseeing on Earth, and above it
- Opportunity for a fun ‘splash and dash’
Have you ever dreamed of taking a hot air balloon trip? This is your moment, with a fantastic hot air balloon ride in Texas, McKinney to be exact. Soar through the sky with a professional pilot at the helm, perhaps brushing gently over the treetops, perhaps flying up to several thousand feet to a point where you can actually see the curvature of the Earth! Ballooning is a majestic and graceful form of travel, there’s nothing else quite like it. And combined with the North Texas landscape, you’ve got yourself a real winner.
Watch as the balloon is inflated, then step into the gondola and prepare for a smooth liftoff. You’ll drift slowly over the lakes, ponds and countryside around McKinney, and possibly get a ‘splash and dash’ if you’re really lucky - that, for those that don’t know, is when your pilot dips the basket down into the water - pretty fun! On landing you’ll be presented with a souvenir flight certificate, as you join the ‘aeronauts club’, then take part in the traditional champagne ceremony, with a few tasty hors d’oeuvres as well. Ballooning is an experience everyone should try once. Here’s your chance.
