We had the best time .yes it only goes up and then back down but for $20.00 what did you expect . I'm glad it was tied off !!! The guide was very nice and very beautiful scenery this is for someone who is not into thrill seeking lol. ME :) and if you have never been in a hot air balloon how do you know what to expect. I thought it was over all a good test run for the day we do go for the real thing.
After 4 times of trying in a year, to go up in the ballon, we finally did. They had been closed due to wind, but said they would be opening shortly when someone got there. There was only 1 person at the window. Finally someone arrived, we bought tickets, everything was a go no wind to cause problems. We went up, we might have been up 5 mins the guy said "the wind is picking up we have to land, we will be shutting the ride down." We landed very disappointed in time in the air. No I'm sorry, no offer to come back again for free or at a discounted price, nothing. When we got to the car, amazingly the balloon was taking another group of 5 up. Guess the wind wasn't strong enough to stop their flight. The staff was polite, the view was great, but in my opinion not worth the money. Ride the Smoky Mtn Big Wheel at the Island, much better value for air time and you have a great view.
Hilton Head, South Carolina
Good value bring coupon better value better than helicopter ride and cheaper. Can see everything great view of smokies
We got there at 10am, and had to wait about 30 minutes for them to do a test run. If you go before noon it is only $12 per person verses $17. There were good view of downtown. The cable tethering you to the ground does buck a couple times in the start. After that smooth sailing.
