Virgin Balloon Flight for Two
There are few experiences as serene and at the same time thrilling, as a Balloon Ride. There is a sensation of time suspended as the world passes by quietly below. It is also a photographers dream with no feeling of movement and no cold breezes as you drift with the wind. Balloon flights are both fun and exhilarating and give you the opportunity to see the world in slow motion from a huge wicker basket. After a safety briefing from your pilot the excitement begins with the inflation of the balloon envelope, which can almost 7 stories high. Climb aboard, and as you take off, the feeling will be one of pure elation. The direction of the flight will be dictated by the wind and the flight itself will last around one hour. Your view of the countryside will be uninterrupted in all directions as the scenery unfolds below. After landing, and once the balloon is packed away, it is time to celebrate in the traditional balloonist's manner: with a glass of champagne. As soon as you place your order a gift pack will be sent to you (or the recipient) containing the experience voucher (valid for 9 months from date of purchase), message card, booking instructions and information booklet.NoteBallooning requires good stable weather, light winds and good visibility. For this reason most flights are scheduled for just after dawn or just before dusk - although take off time will vary depending on the time of year.In the event that your flight is cancelled due to bad weather, the balloon operator will make alternative arrangements with you for another date. It is the pilot's decision on all aspects of the flight.The balloon operator will request that your voucher is 'activated', this will provide you with a voucher specific to that particular operator. Once you have activated your voucher you must attempt to retake any cancelled flights at least 8 times within the same season. If you do not, an extension fee will be payable to the balloon operator.
