1) We're not into crowds. (that's why we live here)
2) We assume some of you are not into crowds either. (That's why you're visiting?)
3) The more people you put in a confined space, the more likely you are to have "drama." (We hate drama.)
Don't take this the wrong way! If you are the group of 12 or more (a wedding party, family, etc), these big balloons are the way to go. But if you're a couple or threesome and don't want to be part of the herd, Balloon Nevada is for you!
Typical "group flight" complaints:
A few too many people
On the day we arrived and waited in the hotel after signing our waivers. We were then allocated to balloons and driven to the launch site as the sun was rising. the balloons were set up and inflated, which was interesting to watch. We were then allocated parts of the basket to stand in, there are 6 people to each 1/4 of a basket, unfortunately we got in between 2 couples so it meant we could not both stand at the side of the basket looking out at the view, we had to keep shuffling to swap places to see, this really took away from the whole experience otherwise we may have given 5/5. I would suggest if you go that you get in last so you can stand at the corner and both get to see out. We enjoyed it but wouldn't go again.
Kills the romance
The basket is divided into 5 sections, the middle for the pilot, and every other section has 3 people. Not much room to move around and your basically in a space the size of a bathroom stall with 3 other people which kind of kills the romance.
