Bob's Balloons offer hot air balloon rides over the Orlando area and across central Florida, with over 100 regular take off and landing sites. The exact location of the take off and landing is usually determined by the wind direction at the time of the flight, but it may in some circumstances be possible to start from the client's home. The trips are a good way to see the lakes, wildlife and scenery across Orange, Osceola, Lake and Polk Counties.
The company uses three hot air balloons of 90,000 and 120,000 cubic feet in volume, which have baskets large enough to carry four or six people per ride. Flights are available to book throughout the year and generally take off at daybreak, although some late afternoon flights are offered too. The balloons rise to as high as 1,000 feet with flights lasting around one hour.
At the end of the flight, guests are treated to a complimentary champagne brunch before being returned to the starting point of the flight. On site tethered flights are available for corporate events and private parties. Guests should dress according to the temperature of the day but sneakers, flat shoes or hiking boots are the preferred footwear for the trip.
