Backup Launch Sites
Almost all of our launch sites have backup sites, which are mainly used when conditions are not flyable at the original site but will also be used if the main site is unavailable for other reasons.
Having backup sites increases the chance of our hot air balloon flights going ahead, as without them it would have been cancelled. Where possible, they will be within 20 miles of the original site.
You will be sent a list of the backup sites for the location you have booked for with your booking confirmation, so please take note of the details in case your flight is moved.
