For some people riding on board a hot air ballon is a form of recreation. It could be full of fun and thrill while you are up above. For sure being on a hot air baloon is quite different from being on an airplane. Will you take the extra challenge of riding or being on board a hot air baloon? Do you think that riding or being on board a hot air baloon is safe? Picture credit: pixabay.com

Years ago a friend of mine took me and my husband on a balloon ride with her and her husband. It was a lot of fun.

@mandala100 I was always afraid of heights but I always went on the very high rides in the amusement parks. I rode the roller coasters over and over and was really afraid of the ferris wheel but always went on them.

I have already tried riding a cable car and zip line and I had fun with them. In the future, I would also like to experience riding on a hot air balloon. I admit there's also a little fear that I feel but more of excitement.

It seems pretty safe to ride. I have never heard of any accidents.

I am the same as you Valerie. I would try something if I was afraid. What's the worst that could happen?

I was lucky as one time I had the opportunity of working with a crew of people that sent up a balloon for people to ride on. There was a big balloon festival nearby and some people from work were asked it they wanted to help that day get the balloon to the right field and blown up. It is amazing watching and being part of that whole process. The people that owned the balloons were so organized, (they have to be to get it in the air). It is a lot of work and a lot of people to get it in the air. When we were blowing it up I got to walk inside the balloon as it was partially up and until we got it ready to go upright. That is one of my things I have done in my life that I really enjoyed and will never get to again.

I think it could be really fun for some people but I am terrified of heights so I could never go up in a hot air balloon.
