Have you ever wondered what it would be like to float above the earth? If a Hot Air Balloon ride is on your bucket list,
make an appointment at the Windy City Balloon Port to schedule your trip. The balloon port is located at the Norge Ski Hill in Fox River Grove. Participants will meet at the Brunch Cafe, then be transported to the ski hill. Book early, as there is often a waiting list. Plan to spend approximately 3 hours on this excursion. Flights are weather dependent, so you may need to be flexible with your plans. Book either a sunrise or sunset flight. Weekend flights are the most popular, so you may want to schedule a midweek excursion. A celebratory champagne toast and lights hors d’oeurvres are provided after your safe descent. Don’t forget your camera. Let the wind take you on this exciting adventure.
Directions to the Brunch Cafe where you will join the other participants will start at the Fox River Grove, Metra Station. From the station head southeast on Parking Lot Drive, left on Algonquin Road, then right on US- 14/ Northwest Highway. Turn left IL 22 and right on Doyle. The Brunch Cafe will be on your right. This is a bit of a hike and may take twenty minutes.
