Your adventure awaits...

  
Are you ready for the experience of a lifetime?  Come fly with us for a unique and memorable experience that you’ll carry with you forever.  From inflation to landing, it’s a soaring, two to three-hour hot air ballooning adventure!

WindDancer Balloon Promotions offers the ultimate in tranquil early morning or early evening flights in the Waukesha area.  Flights are available year-round, seven days a week, weather permitting.  Reservations are required.  Advance reservations can be scheduled for you on the date of your choice, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Your ballooning adventure includes approximately one hour of flight time with you floating effortlessly above the treetops, providing you with a panoramic view of the scenery below.  Depending on where we launch from, you may see parks, farms, fields, ponds and wildlife.  You may see folks in their backyards enjoying an early morning cup of coffee or an evening barbecue.  You may even see your own backyard.  From the air, you’ll gain a unique and amazing perspective of the ground below. Balloon launches are within a 20-mile radius of Waukesha, depending on the direction of the wind the day of your flight.

We’ll meet just before sunrise for our balloon adventure flights.  Mornings are by far the preferred flight time.  If weather conditions are favorable, you’ll receive a wake up call with instructions for meeting the pilot and crew.  If the flight must be cancelled, we’ll let you sleep in.  It is the passenger’s responsibility to reschedule a cancelled flight.

On rare occasions we do scheduled evening flights. Evening flights are less favorable, as the weather rarely cooperates. If we do schedule an evening flight, you’ll receive a call before 3:00 pm on the day of your flight with the go or no-go decision. We’ll meet approximately 2 1/2 hours before sunset. 

Your Ballooning Experience...
Once we arrive at the launch site, the crew will begin to spread out the balloon’s fabric “envelope.”  Gas-powered fans will force air through the balloon’s “mouth” and into the envelope.  After it fills with air from the fan, the balloon and basket are stood upright by igniting the burners, thus forcing hot air into the envelope.  You are invited in join in and help if you would like, or just stand back, take pictures and enjoy the excitement.  When the envelope is fully inflated, you’ll receive a pre-flight briefing, similar to a commercial airline flight. 
We have no flight attendants; therefore your pilot gives the passengers the briefing.  You will then be instructed to climb inside the basket.  When everyone is aboard, the balloon will slowly ascend and you’ll be off on a breathtaking adventure!  Don’t be surprised if there are other balloons in the air with you.  A chase vehicle and the crew will follow the balloon’s entire flight from the ground.  The pilot is in constant communication with the ground crew via two-way radios.

After about an hour of flight, the pilot will select a good landing spot and will notify the crew of his intention to descend.  You may even experience the bottom of the basket skimming the treetops to gently slow your descent, aiding in guiding the pilot to the landing site he has selected.  The chase vehicle’s crew that followed the balloon during the flight will meet you at the landing site, help you out of the basket, and begin deflating and packing up the balloon.  You will then be driven back to your vehicle.
