I flew with Heaven Bound Ascensions/Fun Makers and it was a breath taking experience. The view from the ballon was spectacular! And the pilot was very informative about what to expect before, during and after the flight and was very reassuring to all of the passengers! They were very helpful on the phone when I was trying to schedule my flight. I would recommend this experience to everyone!!!!
I also rented a Bouncer for my son's 5th birthday party and it was a party that my son will never forget. He was very impressed when they started inflating the big house with the big blue dog on it.
We will be using this company again.
8/29/12 I wanted to add to my previous review.
I have been dealing with this company for over 10 years and I love them. I used this company to rent bouncers and other items for parties. I also took a balloon ride with my boyfriend and loved it so much that I gave balloon rides as birthday and christmas gifts. Everyone loved the gifts and then they also loved the balloon ride. I have physical disabilities and the crew was extra helpful when I was getting into and out of the balloon basket. The pilot was very informative before the ride and made us feel very comfortable. I would recommend this company to everyone!
Heaven Bound Ascensions, which is the Hot Air Balloon portion of this business is excellent. The pilots and crew are very nice and answer any questions you have about the whole aspect of hot air ballooning. They do a great story on how ballooning began at the end of the flight and even give you a certificate, a pin and a cup at the end of the flight. While they did offer champaign for the toast at the end, they also offered sparkling grape juice which was really very tasty (especially since I am non-drinker).
I am not sure what the bad review mentioned about the flight not being long enough, as ours was the length of time mentioned in the contract (45 mintues to an hour, mine specifically was 50 minutes) although after about 35 minutes the pilot did start to descend a little more and mentioned he would be looking for a landing spot, understandably, it takes time to descend and locate a spot safe enough for us to land. As I said, he did this after about 35 minutes, but our flight was 50 minutes long.
I really liked the aspect that everyone's safety was foremost in the pilot's mind. And the crew were efficient and was great at getting everyone involved to get everything loaded up and on our way home.
All-in-all the best experience ever and will look forward to taking another trip soon!
This company overcharges and under-delivers when it comes to balloon rides. "Heaven Bound Ascensions", the balloon ride portion of Fun Makers Inc. promises approximately 60 minutes in the air, but instead descended after 35 minutes. Those operating the balloon were also quite rude during the process, offending my 83 year old grandmother on multiple occasions. When we discussed this with the owner of Fun Makers, he informed us that we should have assumed that the timeframe was flexible. I understand that one has to be flexible when dealing with something as delicate as flight, but we received less than 60% of what was a very expensive ride, and our complaints were met with demeaning responses. A simple apology would have been more than enough to satisfy my disappointment, but apparently this company is too stubborn to admit they made a mistake. One last thing: don't expect the champagne you paid for - they give you cheap grape juice.
Our flights are typically 45 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes long. This particular flight was 45 minutes long. Length of our flights are determined by many factors including wind speed, direction of flight, availability of safe landing spots in the direction we are traveling, changing weather conditions which might affect our flight, physical capability of riders to stand during the flight and much more. Our balloons are at the mercy of the wind and therefore when the wind speeds up, slows down or changes direction then our potential landing sites are impacted. Passenger safety is our primary concern and therefore the leading factor when making a decision to land.
We flew with Heaven Bound Ascentions several time and found each trip to be an amazing experience. The pilot was extremely professional and explained everything as we went along. Upon landing we had champagne and he shared the story of how the ballon ride originated which I found added to the overall experinece. I would not hesitate to fly again and have recommeded Heaven Bound Ascentions to many friends and they have all had the same wonderful experience as I have had each and every time.
