One of the single best logbook entries you'll ever  make. 

BALLOON JUMPS

5000ft   $120

AFTERNOON JUMPS

5000ft   $150

EXTRA ALTITUDE?

$10 per 1000ft above 5000ft

Check for availability. High winds at higher altitudes are limiting factors.

 

 

NEED TO BE ON FIRST LOAD?

If you cannot wait for second or third load, and need to get back to the dz, you can skip the que and purchase a guaranteed slot on

first load for $150. 

On first load i will give preference to non skydivers as I would like to land them in the best conditions which is usually earlier. Non jumpers pay $150 for a balloon ride. If you would like a gauranteed slot on first load you can do so by purchasing a $150 slot. So... wanna make the most of your BOOGIE, grab 5 or 6 friends and MAKE FIRST LOAD YOURS. 

 

If there are no takers for priority first load, slots will remain $120 and the pilot will organise loads according to weights, group sizes, who booked first, who don't pick their noses, who cleans their shoes, who cusses the least, who's shoe laces matches their jumpsuits, who sends it, who gnars it, who has the most stickers, and who signs the waiver with their extreme sport nickname. 

We currently accept CASH only and we'll settle up the day of your flight.

FAQ's

What time do we meet?

We meet an hour to hour and half before take off. We need this time to sign waivers, make payments, do the safety briefing and inflate the balloon. We’ll confirm meeting time the day before your balloon flight.

 

Is it going be cold?

Dress warm. You can always take layers off before we launch. There is also a fairly large flame above your head that might keep you a tad warmer. You might actually wanna bring a hat or helmet to shield the top of your head from the burner's heat, especially tall bold people. 

 

Can I bring a friend who doesn’t jump?

Yes. Tell your friend not to follow you when you jump. I recommend it. It’s good for their health. Friends pay for a half hour ride. $150. 

 

Can I bring a backpack or handbag in the basket?

Only bring what you really need. Like car keys and cameras. Space in the basket is limited

 

Can I leave my belongings in the basket when I jump?

A balloon jump is like a normal skydive. You don’t bring a backpack in the airplane, or take a jacket off before you exit.....right? You are fully kitted up, leg straps and chest strap tight, helmets on and gopros  sorted out.

 

Will we make it back to the dropzone?

Plan on landing off. There are plenty of large landing areas. You’ll be able to pick a landing spot before you leave the basket. 

 

Will someone pick us up when we land off ?

There are shuttle vans that will collect you and take you back to the dropzone so you can have breakfast and keep jumping while we pack up the balloon, unless you want to help. Its the biggest packjob you'll ever do. Takes about 20 min. 

What is the exit altitude?

5,000 feet, enough time to do a group exit, laugh at each other flailing, get stable, break off and pull.

 

Can we jump from higher than 5000ft?

Absolutely. If its boogie time usually there are a lot of jumpers so it's not the best time to get into the the higher winds at higher altitudes, as second load might have to take off in phoenix or mexico. {joke, but serious}. It will also be more expensive, depending on the temperature and how many passengers paying for that altitude. Plan for $10 per thousand feet above 5000 feet. Ex. 9000 feet jump will run you $160. Ask for details.

Why are balloon jumps so expensive?

Balloon fabric is similar to parachute material. It is a ripstop Nylon, just a tad thicker than your canopy. Balloons fly because of the fact that hot air rises. HOT AIR!!! inside the balloon, heating up the fabric to boiling point or above for an hour or two per flight, sometimes reaching up to 270-300 degrees F or 132-149 degrees C. This deteriorates the balloon. Along with the sun beating down on the outside, as well as the desert dust, sand, twigs and occasional bush that tags along with it on landing. They last for 350 to 500 hours and can be rebuild for another couple of hundred hours.
