    Hi Mike — the actual balloon ride is about an hour, but they recommend that you allow 2.5 hours for the total experience, including travel back to The Junction Center after the balloon ride. Ages 6 and up are permitted. We’ll go over all the particulars with the winner ahead of time!

    I would love to try to win this, but a 6:30 AM take off means that I would need to be getting up much too early for me. I will let someone else try. If it was an evening one, I would enter in a heartbeat.
