Question Hot Air Ballooning - Northern Virginia? - June 15, 2009, 11:42 AM

My girlfriend wants to go Hot Air Ballooning for her birthday. I'm hoping one of you have been or can point me in a decent direction? I see them floating around on nice days so I'm going to assume there is something around here... Luckily I have a couple months to figure it out.

you could just tie a bunch of ballons to your house like UP.

more power to you if you trust a basket and a balloon.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

I read you can buy them for as little as $1,000 but you get what you pay for.. Also, the FAA has issues with unlicensed people floating around the sky.

not to mention you have one mishap with the highly combustible helium and that big ass flame...mix that with that nylon/silk balloon or whatever it's made of...and ur hot air ride will turn into a free fall in about 3 seconds.

I was watching that on Most Shocking vids the other day...but the damn ppl jumped outta the basket

There is no helium... Hot air gets blown into the balloon... Hot air rises.... Most of the time its a propane torch type thing. Seems pretty safe to me.

And helium is not combustible anyway. You lose in the "trying to scare you" category.
