That is too far up for me-and after the few accidents they have had-think I will pass. Had one years back who was having problems land out in one of our fields-Lots of work taking those things apart-

The orgainizers of this event used to ask for 'balloon chasers.' Do they still need people to chase down and help secure the hot air balloons?

Has anyone taken a ride on a hot air balloon at the festival? How much does it cost?

No rides there, but the going price is about $200-300 depending on how big the basket is. how long you want to fly, some can hold 14 people.
