We've all seen beautiful hot air balloons in flight over the Metroplex -- and maybe even gone to the annual hot air balloon festivals. But have you ever thought of taking a romantic ride in one? That would be an incredible Valentine's Day adventure.
Rohr Balloons specializes in sunrise or sunset balloon rides complete with champagne. Want to pop the question? They can help you out with something extraordinary. It's safe (each balloon comes with an FAA commercial licensed pilot) and it's thrilling.
The cost is $225 (per person) for a group flight (2-10) in a larger balloon or $700 for a private flight (with the pilot) and it includes champagne after the flight. Photos of your flight are included in the price.
Balloons depart from McKinney. For more information or to schedule a balloon flight, contact Brian Rohr at 214-733-9915.
