Hot Air Balloons Flights over the beautiful growing terrain of Lutz, Land O Lakes, Wesley Chapel, New Tampa, Zephyrhills, and St Leo Area. Soaring over the tree tops at the mercy of the winds. All this followed by a traditional champagne toast and hot breakfast at our local airport cafe'. We are located close to Tampa and just off the interstate for easy access no matter where you are visiting. We look forward to making your dreams a reality.

All my friends told me to be careful - take motion sickness medication - you're going to be terrified. Boy, were they wrong and I'm so glad I didn't listen. Even my husband, who is always very apprehensive of the adventures I take us on, enjoyed himself completely and wants to do again. It was the most breathtaking and peaceful... More

If a hot air balloon ride is on your bucket list, I would definitely recommend American Balloons. It was such an exciting trip from setting up the balloon to rising from the ground. Our pilot, Tom, Set us back down to earth on a pillow. This was an amazing flight.

It was an excellent experience. My brother and 7 year old niece joined me for a family excursion. Both owners of the company were present with their crew from registration, to setting up the hot air balloon and even the piloting. What we enjoyed the most was not only the experience, it was feeling like part of their family. I... More

I would highly recommend American Balloons. It's a family-owned business, and they are all experienced, friendly, accommodating, intelligent, and funny. This was a first balloon flight for me, and although I expected to be nervous, I had no fears about safety once I arrived. Everything went smoothly, and I would definitely fly with them again!

The crew at American Balloons work well together and know what they are doing. I decided to cancel my flight for yesterday because there wasn't enough wind to go anywhere, and it was my decision to reschedule for today. The weather was super and our pilot knew when to go higher and lower so he could change directions so we... More
