This past weekend we went on a hot air balloon ride with Balloon Ascensions. I have to say anyone looking for a balloon company in Minnesota I would highly reccomend this company to them. This is a family run company and the owner(balloon driver) is also a United Airline Pilot. He was very careful in the wind conditions which made me feel like he knew what he was doing. He has flown all over the world and normally when flying will fly with people from one of three locations, Shakopee, Prior Lake or Jordan. He says that he normally flies low to intermediate height so if you are looking to go way up this is not for you but it still was a very memorable experience. He also trains people on how to fly a hot air balloon if that is something you want to do. It was something I would definitely do again!
