BECAUSE RIDING IN A HOT AIR BALLOON IS SO UNIQUE FROM OTHER MEANS OF FLIGHT TODAY, IT WILL DIFFER FROM ANY OTHER JOURNEY YOU CAN HAVE IN THE SKY.
Hot air balloon rides occur at two times of day, dawn and dusk. Both reserved times of day assure that it won't be too heated and it's difficult not to enjoy a view like that. For the night owls in the world, the rides at dusk normally go on two or three hours before sunset.
BY FLYING ALONG WITH THE WIND, THERE WON'T BE ANY BREEZE TO FEEL, MAKING THE ADVENTURE VERY PEACEFUL.
Once you are up in the air you will find yourself anywhere between 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. Weather permitting, a hot air balloon can travel all the way up to 10,000 feet.

Exactly as there are all sorts of explanations for hot air ballooning, the balloons come in all sizes and shapes. Depending on overall size, a hot air balloon can hold as much as 16 people. However, balloons will generally fit 4, 8, 10, and 12 passengers at a time.
As the balloons themselves are raised using hot air, it's good to know how that functions. You're able to have such a gorgeous view because hot air is not quite as dense as cold air.
