Pricing- was certainly reasonable-- for a breathtaking view!!
Everything went as planned; and scheduled-- we even got to enjoy watching them put the hot air in the balloon; and having it rise at the beginning, and enjoy the take off, the pilot was very knowledable, and enjoyed doing this for all of us who had a lot of questions about this-- passion = success company!
We had to reschedule the flight 3 times, before we were finally able to take off due to the weather- like I said, it was WORTH the WAIT!! :)
This is in reference to the comment made by "avoid at all cost". There was never a statement made by the company reguarding a "chance at a balloon ride". Also, as this person stated, they were fully compensated. This company is well known for it's exceptional customer service. Thousands of passengers that had this incredible experience would agree!
I am the owner of Aamodt's Balloon Rides. Something to keep in mind about ballooning in this area is that it is one of the most beautiful places in the country to fly but our weather keeps us from flying as often as we would like. Yes, you can fly 200 days a year in New Mexico, for example, but there is nothing to see!
Some advice for people wanting to experience this fantastic form of flight in this area. You must be patient because of our weather. The weather can be frustrating but I have never had a passenger say that it was not worth the wait! I can show you hundreds and hundreds of past customers that will tell you it was the experience of a lifetime!
Also beware of the national 1-800 companies that offer cheap balloon flights. We constantly have passengers call us asking if we know how to find the people that were supposed to fly them. From what I hear, it is cheap because all you really end up with a peice of paper that says balloon ride on it. Buy local!
We had such a great time - the weather was perfect and it was everything we expected and more! I know some people are disappointed with the availability but if you get the right day, you can't beat the experience! Thanks!
It appeared as if they overbooked themselves and could not get enough flights to go for the amount of people who had bought certificates to fly. After four years of waiting, we never got to go. It is an expensive risk to take.
