Balloons Unlimited Inc. was founded in 1976 by Robert Thomas whose passion for ballooning was inspired by his father Clayton Thomas. Balloons Unlimited currently offers a variety of balloon services in Aldie, Richmond, Winchester, Middleburgh, Woodstock, Fairfax, Virginia, DC, Baltimore, & Harrisonburg.
No matter what kind of balloon you’re looking for, Balloons Unlimited Inc. has it for you. Take a moment to view our products and services.
Are you looking for an adventure like no other; or are you in search of a unique gift idea for your loved ones? Look no further, come experience a truly magical balloon flight and let the world drift away as you float through the country sky. Hot air balloon rides are great for families, groups, friends, company outings, or a romantic afternoon with that someone special. Feel the exhilaration of the morning’s fresh air or toast to the sunset at days end.
Our flights typically last between 45 to 90 minutes but we highly recommend you allow up to 3 hours for your excursion. Our flights are conducted twice a day all year round; the first flight being in the early morning and the second flight is just prior to sunset. We welcome our guests to help our ground crew with the setup and breakdown of the balloon if interested.
Balloons don’t have the means of controlling lateral movement so they go wherever the wind takes them. Part of the adventure of ballooning is not knowing your final destination prior to departure. You won’t be much warmer or cooler during the flight than you would be on the ground so you should dress to suit the current season and choose footwear that’s suitable for walking through country fields.
If you have a special day in mind, possibly a birthday or an engagement proposal we highly recommend booking three to four weeks in advance to secure that special day.
There is no single graphic message more important to a company than its logo…and no version of that logo captures the imagination quite like the one which has been hand-sewn into a seven story tall hot air balloon that’s floating overhead at the speed of the wind. You’ve probably heard the term “It stopped traffic”.
Consider for a moment and try to recall the last billboard, newspaper, radio, or television advertisement you saw or heard? Now consider the last hot air balloon you encountered. Enough said.
With ever increasing media and production costs, the challenge continues to be breaking through the clutter. Whether your objective is lowest cost per thousand impressions, or an elegantly executed and unforgettable statement of personal style… you’ll need to rise above the crowd to reach your goal.
