MORDA BALLOON RIDES
A SHROPSHIRE HOT AIR BALLOON LAUNCH SITE
A SHROPSHIRE HOT AIR BALLOON LAUNCH SITE
If you are looking for a hot air balloon in the skies over Shropshire we recommend Virgin Balloon’s West Midlands regional vouchers. Covering all launch locations across the West Midlands these luxury gift vouchers include flexible booking options, champagne toasts, return transport and more! The launch site from the small village of Morda is one of several popular hot air balloon launch sites located across the county & the region.
Due to the nature of hot air balloon flights, the perfect launch location is not always in built up areas. That is why you will often find launch sites near villages, in rural fields, or places that simply offer sufficient space for your hot air balloon to be fired up and then drift up and away without obstruction. One such launch location, among others, can be found in Shrophire and is from the grounds of Sweeney Hall located in the village of Morda just on the outskirts of Oswestry. It is important to be aware when purchasing vouchers the launch site address cannot be guaranteed until closer to launch date due to things like weather conditions, but there are other launch site choices in & around Shropshire, plus all over the West Midlands that your voucher will be valid for.
Did you know that a hot air balloon usually flies no further than 10 miles in an hour? This is a truly lazy and relaxed way of travelling! Of course, your eye can generally see things much farther away, but not when you are on the ground. When earthbound, scientific studies have shown that most people can only see things a maximum of 3 miles away.
Escape the Earth however, for example in a hot air balloon, and suddenly it is possible to see things dozens, even hundreds of miles away! Here are five things to test your new found super-vision with when taking off on your hot air balloon adventure from Westcott!
• A luxury gift voucher valid for 12 months
• A 60 minute flight from any launch site in the West Midlands
• Passenger insurance
• Traditional champagne toast
• Presentation of flight certificate
• Return transport to the launch site
• Magical memories you’ll treasure forever
