The Flying Season Has Begun

We have begun our flying season! We flew the first 2 weeks in May and then went to Frankenmuth, MI, to fly in their hot air balloon festival. While in Frankenmuth, we flew 6 flights and did 1 night glow. It was great weather and the festival was the best ever.

We are now booking rides for the season. We try to answer your call if we are able, but if we cannot personally answer your call, please leave a message and we will try to get back with you as soon as we can.  Our schedule does book up fast, so we suggest calling as soon as you have a date in mind.  We are flying Saturdays and Sundays only, so these days fill up fast.

We offer two packages:

Per Person-   This is an individual rate and we may fly 2-3 people in the basket. This package is approximately 45 minutes.

Exclusive Ride for Two:    This is a ride for only 2 people and our pilot. We will not book any other  passenger(s) in the basket. This package is approximately 45 minutes.


Each of these packages require a $ 100.00 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT PER PERSON. The deposit holds the date and it gets applied to the ending balance of the balloon ride. The NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT does expire 1 year from the date of booking.  When you book your ride, you agree that you understand that the deposit you are paying is NON-REFUNDABLE and that you understand the deposit expires 1 year from the date you booked your ride.


We are the only ones who may cancel a flight. We will not cancel a flight because it is cloudy or overcast. As long as it is not raining the day of your flight, we will be planning on flying.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Soaring High Balloon Adventures LLC would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! With Christmas just 11 days away and the New Year only 18 days away, we are looking forward to our 2013 season. Thank you to all of our passengers who have flown with us in the past. We have enjoyed each of our flights and the people we flew. This year has been filled with bucket list wishes, proposals, dates, anniversaries, birthdays, celebration of life and a few have been passengers with terminal illnesses.

Looking towards 2013, Soaring High has a few hot air balloon festivals that we are planning on attending. The first festival will be New Smyrna Beach Skyfest. We have attended this event in the past and we really enjoyed it. We are also planning to attend Frankenmuth's hot air balloon festival, Howell's Michigan Challenge hot air balloon festival, Greenville's Danish Festival, and Midland's RE/MAX hot air balloon festival.

2013 will bring on a few changes for us. They are as follows;

* Our NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT PER PERSON is now $100.00 per person

* Our rates have changed slightly (Effective 12/1/2012)


We look forward to a great 2013 Season and we hope to see you for your hot air balloon adventure.

Thank You again to all of our previous passengers!

Color Changing Has Started!

Our pilot was flying this past weekend at the RE/MAX of Midland Balloon Festival in Midland, Michigan. When we arrived, we noticed that the leaves were already changing color. Our pilot competed with 55+ balloons and he took 5th place overall. Saturday night he dropped a baggy on an X and took 2nd place. We all had a great weekend with the other pilots and family and friends.

Today I was looking out the window and noticed quite a few trees just outside the window were already changing colors. I always love the color changes because they are so beautiful. Well, if you want to take a balloon ride to see the colors from the air, you may want to call and schedule that ride soon. We have some openings, but the dates are filling up fast.

The dates I have open are the following:
 Sunday, October 7, 2012            Sunday, October 21, 2012            
 Saturday, October 27, 2012        Sunday, October 28, 2012

Some possible dates that may be open are the following, but they are dependent on whether there are leaves on the trees:
  Saturday, November 3, 2012                            Sunday, November 4, 2012

Please remember that the later you schedule your ride in October, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to fly. This all depends on how long the leaves will be on the trees.

 IF WE ARE UNABLE TO GET YOUR RIDE OFF THIS SEASON, YOU WILL BE CARRIED OVER TO OUR SPRING SEASON. YOU WILL NEED TO CALL US IN LATE APRIL TO SCHEDULE YOUR RIDE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THE NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT IS ONLY GOOD FOR ONE YEAR FROM YOUR ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED BALLOON RIDE.


We offer 2 different packages depending on what you prefer.
1) PER PERSON RATE- This package is for those who do not mind having other passengers booked for the ride. We can fit 3-4 passengers in the basket. We do have a $75.00 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT PER PASSENGER that is required when booking your ride. When you book your ride, you are agreeing to our policy that the NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is just as it says, non-refundable. This deposit expires one year from your originally scheduled date.

2) EXCLUSIVE RIDE FOR 2- This package is for those who would like the basket for the two of them. This package is great for proposals, anniversaries, dates,and celebrations. We do require a $ 75.00 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT PER PASSENGER that is paid within 5 days of booking your ride. When booking your ride, you are agreeing to our policy that the NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is just as it says, NON-REFUNDABLE. This deposit expires one year from the date of your original ride.

We also offer ride tickets that can be given as gifts and used for up to one year from the date of purchase. The tickets make great birthday, anniversary, and christmas gifts.

To schedule a ride, buy a ride ticket, or for just more information, please call us at 616-836-4648 or 616-594-6259. We look forward to taking you on a breath-taking hot air balloon ride.

Fall Is Just Around The Corner

Fall is sneaking up on us quickly! It is hard to believe that September is here already and we are all booked up for September. The first available date in October is Sunday, October 7, 2012.

If you are looking to book a fall ride, we strongly recommend booking very soon. We have had a very dry and hot summer and we are thinking the colors will begin early and ens early. As soon as the leaves are gone from the trees, we stop flying until Spring. The leaves provide a wind block for the inflation of the balloon and also the landing, when they are gone, it is very difficult to inflate a hot air balloon with wind.

If you book a ride, and we are not able to get your ride off due to wind or weather, we will reschedule you for the next available date that works for both of us. If we are not able to get your ride off this season, we will have you schedule your ride for a date in the Spring. If you are from out of the area, and we are not able to get your flight off, we will reschedule your ride for another time you are in this area, as long as it is rescheduled within a year of your originally scheduled date. 

Here is a list of dates that we have open as of Monday, September 10, 2012. We cannot guarantee that these dates will still be open when you call to book a ride.
                   
                                     

                                       

                      October-
                                      Sunday, October, 7, 2012
                                      Saturday, October 13, 2012
                                      Saturday, October 20, 2012
                                       Sunday, October 21, 2012
          Possibly depending on if leaves are still on trees we may have
                                        Saturday, October 27, 2012
                                        Sunday,  October 28, 2012
