Balloon Rides as a Gift for Children

Experience the silent majesty of a hot air balloon flight with a child, and they’ll never see the world the same way again. From coast to coast, a hot air balloon flight is an impressive experience for the adventurous spirit and a truly unique gift for a child.

An aviation adventure awaits children who receive the unique gift of a hot air balloon ride. From waking up in the early morning hours and watching the setup, to the exciting touchdown about an hour later, a hot air balloon ride gives children a thrill that few ever experience. As preparation for the child’s unique gift, read up on the history of ballooning, where the first flights in the late 1700s consisted of animal passengers. The first manned flight occurred in 1783 in France, observed by more than 400,000 people.

Weather conditions are best in the early morning hours, when the air is calm and stable. When purchasing a balloon adventure as a unique children’s gift, ask the company what the package entails. Many companies will allow guests the chance to participate in both setup and packing up the balloons. A light meal of cheese, crackers, and sparkling cider is often served after the successful flight. Don’t forget to ask about photo opportunities upon takeoff and while aloft. Many companies have cameras attached to the gondolas for one-of-a-kind pictures of the guests soaring above the clouds.

Ballooning is considered an extremely safe form of aviation. With a responsible company that practices high standards for the industry along with well-trained pilots, there’s no need to worry about this unique gift for children being dangerous. Most balloon companies have a minimum age restriction, often requiring participants be at least 4 years old. Also, most children are required to travel with an adult, so plan on accompanying the child for their unique gift experience of a hot air balloon ride.
