Step back in time to a place of fantasy where you can soar with eagles. Our gentle flights will take you to a place that can only be experienced by hot air balloon. You will be delighted and surprised at the serenity and ease of which our massive balloons take to the skies. Hot air ballooning is a sport of elegance and beauty where you can be at one with nature. You will not believe how smooth the flight is, and, if you thought you were afraid of heights you should come see the world from our perspective. Many people have come with us only to be surprised that they were not frightened to be up in our hot air balloons. You will surprise yourself too. Let us be that avenue to step out of your world and into ours. If you ever have any questions as to which balloon company to experience simply ask one of the top hotels in Park City who they recommend. We fly for all the top resorts: Stein Eriksen Lodge, The Montage, St. Regis, Hotel Park City, and the Waldorf Astoria, to name a few. Come join Morning Star Balloons on one of our daily flights over the majestic mountains of Park City, Utah. You'll be glad you did.

BUYER BEWARE. This company has the worst customer service I have ever experienced. I had bought the Groupon last year, (which ends up being through Soaring Adventures of America) and had scheduled a time to fly with Morning Star Balloons, the weather didn't permit us to fly the day of our ride, and we were told we could reschedule. It... More

We went Saturday morning (Oct 17) with Captain Daren. Side note: Be aware you will not be able to use a restroom for 2-3 hours. Back to the amazing ride! They picked us up from a designated hotel and shuttled us to the best place to take off for the day. They test the winds to be certain it's a... More

Having had an amazing hot air balloon experience in Myanmar, we wanted to share the experience with my sister-in-law and her husband as a thank you to them. From the moment we got in the van to drive to the site where the balloon would take-off, we knew we'd have to take "Wild Bill" with a grain of salt. That... More

We spoke to them the night before and they told us that the weather, pilots, and everything else was good to go for our reservation the next morning. We had made this reservation months ahead of time. We don't live in Park City and had to wake up at 5:00am to get there in time for our ride. At 6:00am... More

We tried for 3 years to schedule a balloon ride. We would book a reservation for a room in Park City, arrange for time off work, and have a babysitter for the time reserved with this company. Everything was prepaid. They said they would let us know if there were any weather problems that would require us to reschedule. No... More

Johnny, The flight was canceled due to weather. The Facebook post you referenced was from a different day that was inadvertently posted to the wrong date. We take safety very seriously and would never put anyone in danger. Weather is very unpredictable and can change at any moment. We do the best that we can to balance flying our passengers... More

I took a balloon jump with friends and I have to say, despite lots of experiences with airplanes, air sports, and resorts in the Park City area, this was an experience like no other. Our pilot, "Wild" Bill, was amazingly skilled at guiding the balloon around and really had a lot fun with us. Darren was polite, positive and professional.... More

What a perfect experience in the heart of Park City! Bill and Kim were excellent and gave myself and my friends an amazing experience. The ground crew was on point and the safety of it all was top notch. Definitely going again!

We had a great time with Wild Bill. He is professional, fun, and was patient with us skydivers. I would recommend Morning Star for either jumping or just a fun balloon ride.
