How long does it take?

The whole ballooning experience will take 3-4 hours but your unforgettable memories will last a lifetime!

We had a group of 10 to take a Hot Air Balloon ride for my father-in-law's 70th birthday. The guys at Floating Images were fabulous and were more than happy to organise our departure from the family farm in Kalbar. It made my father-in-law's day/year! He and his brothers enjoyed the amazing flight over the neighbouring properties and enjoyed the view of the countryside they grew up in. Thank you to Floating Images. We couldn't recommend you enough! Kellie, August 2018
