Our balloon ride was amazing! We were in the air for an hour, with a celebration afterward. Will, the owner and pilot, explained how he got the balloon to go where he wanted, and pointed out sights of interest, like the Great Salt Lake, and two bucks on the ground beneath us. Who knew balloons were FAA-monitored aircraft! We were with our 11 year-old granddaughter and all of us had an outstanding time. We highly recommend Skywalker!

This client did not read that the special deal offered at the KSL.com deal site was per person.
He read "Basket holds up to 10 passengers" and thought one ticket would be good for up to 10 people. Our staff politely explained this fact to him, and had KSL.com immediately refund his money.

Will Drummer subcontracts to other balloonists in the location you want to travel. We wanted to balloon in St. George and was put into contact with Bill Howes. 435-632-0222. We met him at his home and he drove us to the launch site. We asked to help with the setup and he obliged. He has piloted for over 25 years in St. George and additional years in California. He was a wealth of knowledge about the area and pointed out changes occurring in the community.

This was my first balloon experience and I would recommend it to others. I plan to try other venues and may take my parents up. My husband who did not want to balloon joined the follow car driver and was entertained with the insights of a self-proclaimed native and naturalist.

The landing was SOFT. We hovered over the landing spot while the ground crew walked our basket closer to the pickup trailer.

The day was sunny and had a light wind. Perfect for a peaceful balloon ride.

First time in a hot air balloon, and what a fun experience. Reassuring to go with such a solid (and beautiful! ) balloon and experienced crew. Beautiful views of the ski resorts and Park City. Enjoyed the champagne toast at the end too!

We have just returned from a week's vacation in Park City, Utah and while we were there we took a balloon ride with Skywalker Balloon Company. It was a great experience and very much enjoyed by everyone. One of our friends was a little nervous before we took off but was made to feel completely at ease by Will and his crew.
The weather was glorious and the views over Park City were spectacular.
I would not hesitate to recommend this ride.
