Arrived 6-30am monday 17th sept, greeted by Ollie the balloon pilot and Dave ground crew,the experience was to help with getting basket set up and inflating balloon,before flight.The flight itself was amazing,travelled for about 10 miles at around 2000ft, landed gently in a field, helped...More
Oliver and Kendra made our experience worth the wait (& yes like many had lots of cancelled flights) we originally booked in march and flew yesterday - the evening skies looked a bit dull and thought rain imminent - but no - held off and...More
Voucher was bought for me my son as a 60th birthday present.
Tried booking on 3 occasions, but each time they cancelled due to weather,
Just tried booking again and was told voucher had expired as I hadn't tried booking 5 times!!

Managed to fly on my second date booked and wow was it worth it. So beautiful just floating along. Ravi and Andrew were amazing at getting everything sorted and despite a slightly bumpy landing in a locked field worked really hard to get things sorted.....More
Flights are cancelled constantly, despite always seeing other balloons in the air. Your voucher expires after 12 months and you need to have tried to book more than 5 times in this 12 months to ‘’show you’re serious’’ ... when my partner paid you a...More
Like many others this was the 6th time of trying to fly but it was worth the wait. My husband & I shared the 'basket' with 6 other friendly people and our pilot Ollie. We all helped assemble the balloon. Ollie gave great instructions and...More
I initially purchased this as a gift for my husband in September 2016 and after 9 cancelled flights and almost 2 years to the date of purchase, he got the flight. Yes it was frustrating but you also have to realise the weather and in...More
Having been bought the voucher in March 2017 I had tried to book flights around 6 times, each time I was thoroughly relieved (as someone who is scared of heights and very reluctant to go floating around in a big basket!) to find out that...More
This was our 4th attempt due to adverse weather conditions on 3 previous dates but it was well worth the wait. We flew form York Racecourse, Ollie, our pilot was a friendly guy who straight away involved us working as a team to unfurl the...More
Our first booking was cancelled due to bad weather, sadly adventure balloons do not control the weather, but is goes to prove your safety comes first. Rebooking was easy and no fuss. Early start in Alton. Kim the pilot got everybody involved in setting up...More

Silence speaks volumes!!!!!! A hell of a lot would be my guess. Time to put pressure on Red Letter Days and all those other companies who sell Adventure Balloon vouchers to STOP. Have bought loads of vouchers from Red Letter days and have, without fail, always been really delighted with what has been offered, with the exception of Adventure Balloons.(Although this voucher was a gift!!) Not so much an ADVENTURE more a MYSTERY as to why Red Letter Days are risking their reputation by still selling vouchers!!!! Also a MYSTERY as to if my flight will ever happen. Am booked again next week, but have given up even caring if it will go ahead!!! Treat for my 50th birthday but I am now nearly 53, and what should have been a wonderful gift, is now reduced to when the F**K is this going to happen? How awful is that!!! Am only persisting with this so as not to disappoint the person who gave me the voucher. Flying in a balloon was a life long dream for me, which has become a bit of a nightmare!!! My wonderful gift, from a delightful and caring friend has turned out to be an expensive nightmare for both of us. I have had to up grade so I can "fly" on weekend, (or not fly on weekend as well as week days as it turns out!!!) Am booked to fly this coming weekend, so will post as to what happens!!!!

We add a free extension if your flight has been cancelled by us at least 5 times during the validity period of the voucher. Please emaiil us and we can give you a full answer regarding extension fees. Without knowing the area you are referring to we cannot let you know how many flights we scheduled. Over all the areas we fly on some days last season we had 4 flights scheduled on each morning and evening. We can only go flying if the weather is suitable and it is disappointing for everyone if the weather conditions force us to cancel a flight.
