If you are a family that loves adventure, here is something with a difference - Hot Air Ballooning!
Middle Tennessee Hot Air Balloons give you an unforgettable experience, as you soar above the Tennessee countryside. You never know - you might even spot your house if you are from the area!
What makes Middle Tennessee Hot Air Balloons different from a lot of the others, is that they actually own the balloons themselves and fly them themselves. So you know that you will be in good hands, and when you need to talk to someone, it will be someone from the company itself.
We LOVE that!
The owners, Henry and Logan Bedford, have years of experience with flying hot air balloons, which makes the experience that much more special! They want to give all families an experience they will never forget - and we think they do just that!
Middle Tennessee Hot Air Balloons offers two trips per day between April and November. Often, these are sunrise and sunset. This is because the wind is more suitable for flying.
The flight itself will be shared with others, unless you book a private adventure where it is just your group. Great if you have a large family!
If you want an even more unique hot air balloon adventure (if that's possible!) the Dawn Patrol might be for you. This is only available at sunrise, and you launch in complete darkness, before the sun rises right in front of your very eyes over the Tennessee horizon. How amazing does that sound!
What a great start or end to a very special family day out. You'll be flying among the birds!
The common meeting place is listed on the this site - the People's Church on Murfreesboro Road, just off Exit #65 off I-65.Get directions

The family that run the adventures have been doing this for years, so you are in great hands! You also have direct contact with them when you call, rather than going through a call center. It's a personal experience!
It's best to take something in the car so you can enjoy food before or after your experience. When in the Nashville countryside, why not make a day of it and have lunch in nature!
It's recommended that kids are at least 5 years to fly. If you have younger kids, see how they are around the balloons first so they are comfortable with the burners.
It's a good idea to take bottled water with you to stay hydrated.
Give them a call if you have special needs, and see how they can accommodate you. You do have to be able to climb over the side of the basket. They provide a stool for assistance.
When you book, you need to enter weight. This ensures the life capacity is maintained, so make sure you enter the correct weight
