Reviews for Sky Riders Balloon Team in Collegeville, PA

5 StarsExcellent!My experience with the Sky Riders Balloon Team was, in a word - AWESOME! I've been looking into going on a hot air balloon ride for years and this time I was going to do it. I researched every company in the area and when I came across Sky Riders, they had the most to offer without the big price tag like the other companies. For example; other companies charge extra for a private ride with a pilot and 2 people, just as is the champagne toast option – not with Sky Riders, it’s all included in there already low price. The biggest issue most of the companies make, is that they fly for "about" an hour. When I was contacted by Vince about our ride, he said that he loves to fly and if conditions were perfect then he likes to fly as long as he can. Turns out on the day of our flight, conditions were perfect and we flew for about an hour and forty five minutes! That's almost double what other company’s offer. I'm not saying that these conditions will be the norm for every ride, but I'm saying that Vince was true to his word and I feel as if I got more than my moneys worth. And the ride is just the beginning. After you meet they take you in the chase vehicle to the launch spot. Before you get in the balloon they take pictures of you and when you take off and are well above the ground, they snap some more. You get to have the time of your life on the hot air balloon ride, when you land you have the chase vehicle pick you up and take you back to your car. Is the ride done there - NO. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better the sky riders team went back to work and set up a table with all kinds on yummy foods, from cheese and crackers, to fancy cookies, to pretzels, to cinnamon buns, and of course to celebrate: a champagne toast, with some orange juice if you'd like a mimosa. After being overwhelmed with the whole hot air balloon experience, two days after in the mail we received a certificate with our flight details and picture on it. Along with five or six 8x10 hard copies of the pictures they took just before our flight. I mean how much more can you ask for when they have the lowest price around? The whole team was super friendly and informative; Vince was a great pilot who put safety first. Our landing was amazing, lighter than an elevator! When I tell everyone that I went on this ride they say that they looked into going on a hot air balloon ride but it was expensive. I agree that you can't do this ever weekend, and I thought myself that these rides are on the pricey side, but I'm sure glad that I went with Sky Riders because I know that I got way more than I paid for, and as far as the ride it's self - priceless! I'll be sure to try and make this a yearly trip, that's how happy I am with this company and experience. Thanks! Young couple08-02-11
5 StarsExcellent!My husband surprised me with a balloon ride for my 32nd birthday. I was very scared because 1) I get motion sickness and 2) I was just scared to fly in a balloon! But the pilot and his crew made me very comfortable and answered each and every question I had. The flight was soooooo smooth, I could not believe it. The scenery was beautiful and it was truly a once in a lifetime thing to do. I cannot speak highly enough about the pilot and his crew! The entire experience was AWESOME and we have been telling all of our friend and family about it since. ALso, after the flight, they had a champagne toast with cheese & crackers for us which was so nice. And then 3 days later......we got a packet of amazing photos in the mail that the crew took for us! You have to do this! It is totally amazing and you will LOVE it!!!!!! I would recommend this to everyone - it would be an awesome/unique birthday, anniversary, wedding, shower gift, etc....... They even told us that some people propose up in the sky which I could not imagaine how cool that would be!!!!!!Young couple08-02-11
5 StarsExcellent!As first time balloon riders, we did not know what to expect. We were both VERY pleased with the overall experience! The Sky Riders Team was very professional and pleasant. Our scheduled flight needed to be rescheduled due to bad weather, and we were able to reschedule for the following week. The pilot made us feel very comfortable and safe, and the flight itself was extremely beautiful and scenic. The champagne toast and snacks after the flight was really nice! I would recommend Sky Riders with no hesitation. Young couple06-06-11
5 StarsExcellent!The experience I had with Sky Riders was awesome. Our Pilot not only wanted us to have a safe ride but also a great time. After the ride, they offered us some wine and snacks to celebrate the experience. It was a very nice touch and end to our ride. I would recommend Sky Riders to anyone looking to do something a little different! It would make a great B-day or anniversary gift.Middle age female10-11-10
