Balloon Depot Rates and “Any-Denomination” Gifts
Â Morning flights are $189.00 per person, seven days a week. We will have the traditional post-flight toast and a light meal upon landing. If you’re a morning person, this is the flight for you. Since there is typically less wind in the mornings than there is in the evening, we might not fly as far on average as we might on an evening flight, but on average, we’re in the air longer. The evening flights are $210.00 per person, seven days a week. These flights include a catered snack tray arrangement along with the toast and celebration, and usually turns into a fine party with your new friends. In summertime, when sunset is around 9 PM, you’ll truly look forward to the meat and cheese trays and made-from-scratch dip as soon as we get back to the meeting site! Before you head home, your pilot will autograph a “certificate of ascension” to take with you, a nice memento of your flight. When you get home you can come back to this site and download a group photo of your flight as well, to email to all your friends.Â There is no sales tax to worry about on hot air balloon rides. Your arrival time to make your flight varies with the time of year; we’ll give you that information when you tell us your reservation date. If you don’t want to fly, but want to take part in the rest of the experience, for $21.00/person you can ride along in the chase van, and join in the post-flight party. Just let us know at check-in and you can take care of payment at that time; no prepayment needed. A private Romance flight for two people (plus the pilot) is also available. This is an expensive, but memorable, way to celebrate anniversaries or other important occasions. More than the usual amount of advance notice may be required to reserve your date. Call us as soon as you can for private flight reservations.
No pre-payment is necessary; You can hold your reservation with a credit card and pay however you like on arrival. if we can’t fly due to weather, you are welcome to re-schedule, but are under no obligation. We do require 48 hours notice for cancellations, however. No-shows will have their cards charged for the full fare, and can fly later, on a space-available basis.
We also offer flight certificates. They have a suggested use-by date of one year from purchase. After that date has passed, if the certificate hasn’t been used, it’s still valid but any price increase for the flight will have to be made up for, so it’s best to use it within that one year. These certificates can be purchased right here on our SSL secure online shopping cart (128 bit encryption so you don’t need to worry about the safety of your purchase), or just call us at (360) 805-1538, or send a check to Balloon Depot, PO box 1262, Carnation WA 98014. These certificates make fabulous gifts for others, or you can use it to make your own reservation. Just follow the steps after you add the certificate to your shopping cart, and specify in the “comments” window if you’d like your certificate to be sent in the mail, or emailed to you, ready to print out. use the grey buttons below for either morning or evening flight certificates.
As for the “Any-Denomination” gifts, you can decide just how much of your lucky recipient’s gift of flight you want to purchase. We’ll simply apply that amount to their reservation, and they can pay the balance anytime up to their flight date, it’s that easy! Just let us know either through the shopping cart or by note with your check or during our phone conversation the amount you want to make it for!
