Get to know that lush landscape that makes Florida famous as you glide over the swamps and forests that cover the Earth below. While drifting over the thousands of acres of orange groves that produce nearly 75% of America’s oranges, be sure to lean in and get a whiff of that tangy citrus aroma. And best of all, each flight takes off in the Disney area, so bring your cameras because few people get a glimpse of Magic Kingdom like the one you’ll get soaring from above!
The Hot Air Balloons
Boasting the largest hot air balloon in the United States, Orlando Balloon Rides utilizes master craftsmanship and engineering to deliver a ride so smooth that you can barely feel the subtle movements of the basket. The balloons inflate with nearly a half million cubic feet of hot air and hold up to 24 passengers, so there is plenty of room to move about and get an amazing 360 degree view of the sights below.
Rest assured, Orlando Balloon Rides has a 100% pristine safety record and they follow every national aviation regulation to the “T”. They use newly constructed partitioned baskets made of wicker and stainless steel in order to offer guests a secure tour of the Orlando skies. With over 100 years of combined experience, the six resident pilots are experts in aviation – they know all about the Florida weather and they will only take off if they can guarantee a successful flight. So leave your worries behind and enjoy this peaceful journey as you admire the unique terrain and magnificent construction of the great city of Orlando.
