Hot Air Balloon Rides – Orlando Florida

Hot Air Balloon Rides from Thompson Aire
Early Morning over Kissimmee

On a recent trip to Orlando we decided to take a hot air balloon flight, there are a number of companies offering this but we booked with Thompson Aire run by Jeff Thompson as they had been highly recommended.

At the time of writing this the cost was $185 per adult + tax and if you have more than 4 or 6 in your group you get an extra discount (this does include breakfast after the flight). They have balloon flights everyday which start at around 6am but you do need to book in advance as they get full up quickly especially around the holidays.

We met them the next morning at 6am up on HWY192, they then decide which way the wind is going so they can plan a route for the flight.
