  • Sure why not.

    "In the US, you can expect to pay somewhere between $225 and $275 per person for a balloon flight shared with other passengers. Prices vary, so you'll need to check directly with a company in the area to find out what the actual cost is in the local area."

  • I wanted to do it for my husband's 40th birthday. But I decided against it because it was so expensive. I forget the price, but it was around $250 per person!

  • We are going to do this in Colorado in May. I think it will be worth it. We will probably only do it this once so I'm excited! We have been on helicopter rides and I think those are amazing so I imagine this will be kind of the same?? I say go for it, you only live once! Good luck with your decision if you're planning on it!

  • my husband and I go back/forth on that a lot..... and since I am so scared of heights for us it would be a waste of $$$$. I'd imagine the experience, memories, photos, etc to be quite amazing though and "worth it" for most folks :)

  • Never been on one. Heard it is a neat experiance. Depends on how much they are asking and for how long
