Gulf Shores-Orange Beach, Alabama (PRWEB) May 05, 2013
TripShock.com is now offering hot air balloon rides to travelers wishing to experience a unique journey high above the white sands and emerald waters of Alabama’s beaches. Travelers will fly at approximately 1,000 feet above the countryside and enjoy panoramic views of the bays, bayous and beaches in the scenic Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. Hot air balloon rides give families and couples alike a unique and relaxing experience. The two-hour excursion includes one hour of flight time and a champagne toast at the end to celebrate a successful adventure.
A licensed pilot with over 20 years of experience will lead the tour and simultaneously teach passengers how to set up, launch, and pack the balloon. The pilot controls take off and landing with a series of burns from the 18 million BTU/HR burner. However, wind plays an important factor in hot air balloon travel. A journey by hot air balloon could lead in any direction, perfect for those with a knack for adventure.
Passengers should be in good physical condition and are encouraged to wear athletic shoes, long pants, and shirts with sleeves. Also noted, passengers should bring a protective case for cameras to prevent damage during landing. The tour operator provides gloves and drinks.
