Balloon Rides
October 7th, 2014 10:03 AM

Davenport continues to bustle with activity as another well known business locates to the area.  Orlando Balloon Rides now has a Welcome Center located at the intersection of I-4 and Hwy 27, adjacent to McDonald's and Wendy's.  This popular flight entertainment has been in operation for many years and now meets before sunrise at this location.

This is a very exciting form of entertainment, with most flights lasting approximately one hour, depending on weather conditions and landing sites.  With wind direction guiding, you may fly over one of the Disney parks or scenic orange groves and other areas surrounding Hwys. 27 and 192.  You can go as high as the tree tops to several thousand feet and feel like you are floating on a cloud, moving extremely slow and calm.

I have personally taken three of these balloon flights and would  recommend it to anyone wanting the thrill of a lifetime!  It is a very early start, meeting anytime from 5:30 AM to 6:30 AM and then driving to the remote area that is safe to launch the balloons.   After a landing chosen to be safe, there is usually a champagne toast and refreshments to celebrate the completion of your exciting adventure!

Fall is a great time to take a hot air balloon ride.  The weather is cooler and the air is crisp so early in the morning.  Be sure to add this to your "must do" list and enjoy this "once in a lifetime" experience.
