Wonderful experience, great customer service, had a blast! My wife got this for me for my birthday. Had a nice, simple breakfast at the launch (granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh-brewed coffee and tea). Four different companies launched at that site that morning, but we clearly had the best-looking balloon of them all. The entire crew is very friendly, professional and fun, and the pilot in particular (Colin) was awesome. We went at least 3500 feet up (I think we hit 3700). As luck had it, very little wind that day, but that's hardly the fault of the company. We did make some distance despite that, amazing views of the mountains, of Boulder, saw downtown Denver and even Pike's Peak (!) in the distance! Took may great pictures and a few digital movies. Three other couples went up with me, we all had plenty of room. After landing and returning to launch site, we enjoyed a celebratory toast with mimosas. I highly recommend this company!

My friend and I took a balloon ride last weekend and it was an amazing experience! The crew even served us coffee and breakfast before the flight (yogurt, berries, and granola - yum!) while they were setting up the balloon. There were a few couples also along for the ride and I was concerned how we would all fit in the basket however once we were in it, there was actually plenty of room for everyone. I recommend dressing in layers because the morning was cold but it was very warm in the basket when the burners were on. I'm a little bit afraid of heights so I was kind of concerned about the ride however I was pleasantly surprised that the height did not bother me at all! The ride was super smooth and the pilot was very professional and informative (and hot!). The landing wasn't scary and it was fun to toast with champagne with everyone after the flight!

I had scheduled a hot air balloon ride for my twins birthday and my husband and myself. It was a fabulous experience that I would recommend to everyone! The staff was courteous, efficient and fun! I will be booking more rides in the future for special occasions. Thank you Adventure Balloon Sports!

This was the first time I have taken a hot air balloon ride and it was amazing. We ended up having a total of 6 people in the balloon, which left enough space to move in the basket a bit and look all around. Since I went on a beautiful winter day, we got to go particularly high up and had great views of Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park. I also enjoyed getting involved in the balloon prep, i.e. helping to hold the balloon open while it was being filled. It was cool to see the whole process getting the balloon ready to fly. It was a fun mix of exhilaration and relaxation since you never know quite where you'll end up! Service was professional. We got started on time and taken quickly back to the launch site after landing.

Great experience...I took my first ever hot air balloon ride with Adventure Balloon Sports and can't wait for the next one! Pilots were extremely professional and courteous, serving juice/coffee/light snacks before the flight and allowing me to ask all of the outlandish questions that went through my mind on the drive over to the launch site. It was very impressive to watch them go through the pre-flight checklist and inflate the massive balloon right in front of my eyes, it seemed like we were hopping into the basket in no-time at all. Once we were airborne it was amazing to experience how serene and quiet it is up there travelling at the same speed as the light wind, I hardly noticed how high we had climbed until someone requested the actual altitude (I was too busy staring at the seemingly endless mountain range surrounding Boulder, CO). Our pilot was very knowledgable on all of the surrounding areas and was happy to answer any/all questions we all had about the flight and what we were seeing down below. I was very intrigued to find out that they can navigate the balloon North, South, East, West by noting the direction of the winds at different altitudes and then using that knowledge to move us about the valley in order to eventually set us up for a safe landing...very cool! Upon landing, we were met by the rest of the crew (who had been following us on the ground in the van) who helped us to exit the basket and packed up the whole thing right there on the spot...which was extremely impressive to watch. We then proceeded back to the launch site where the champagne toast concluded my epic first hot air balloon ride experience. Overall this was an extremely memorable experience for me and my fellow passengers. Extremely prompt and courteous service by the pilots/staff, followed by an unforgettable ride across the scenic valley that is Boulder, CO (amazing pictures did ensue). Adventure Balloon Sports will most definitely be contracted by me again the next time I am in Boulder...I hear they have a brand new 12-passenger ballon now as well!

If you're going to book a trip with this company, make sure you confirm how many other customers will be riding with you! We booked a birthday flight and assumed it was just for us (no one in the office said anything otherwise when we booked). What a surprise to arrive at the launch site and find 4 other people waiting to go with us! Would have been fine if we had known, but we really felt like we had been lied to. Wouldn't book with them again....
