Enjoy a weightless soak in 104F hot water while you fly in a hot air balloon: a world first!


THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOM QUOTED FOR AS FEW AS TWO PASSENGERS. Imagine floating weightless in your own personal hot tub - thousands of feet above ground - free of Earth's rotation. Your teak trimmed hot tub accommodates two in complete comfort. Water temperature is controlled on board to your desire by your FAA Certified Commercial pilot. Enjoy a crystal flute of non-alcoholic Ariel Brut Cuvee Champagne served at the apogee of your flight. Ask about complimentary Lavender aromatherapy salts as an option. Enjoy a champagne brunch post flight served in our private gazebo next to a duck pond.

Each gondola accommodates 4 passengers with TWO hot tubs on board with separate water supply - so invite two friends to come along!
