"What our passengers are saying!"

"The BEST Balloon Ride I have been on!  I have taken several balloon rides which lauched out of Letchworth park.  This ride was a far better Letchworth experience.  We met, checked the winds, drove to a launch site outside of the park, and inflated the balloon.  The whole process went quickly and smoothly and before I knew it we were in the air!  What an amazing view of park.  We traveled through the Great Bend, Wolf Creek, Middle and Upper Falls- all the wonderful scenic areas of the park.  It was spectacular!  Our pilot, Kevin, was a great guide and wealth of knowledge about the park and about ballooning in general.  He is highly professional and has a spotless safety record.   Overall, I can't recommend a balloon ride with Kevin highly enough!  You won't be disappointed-"

"Over our Memorial Day Weekend camping trip, my boyfriend, John, and I went on our virgin hot air balloon ride with Kevin, owner and pilot of Geneses Falls Balloon, near Letchworth State Park. Kevin and his crew were awesome from start to finish. It was a perfect evening, low wind, sunny skies. We felt safe, comfortable, and well taken care of. Kevin's personal and relaxed approach was admirable as we realized how much responsibility was involved. The entire experience was fascinating and a memory to keep forever. We highly recommend Kevin and his operation for the BEST hot air balloon experience ever! Fair winds and safe ballooning!"

"The experience from this balloon ride has left me speechless. I was overwhelmed well before we even took off. Pilot, Kevin is such a passionate, accommodating, hospitable, and amazing person for this business. I have managed hotels the past 6 years and he really is so customer service driven with all the details and bells and whistles. Him and his family really make this something you will never get anywhere else. I can’t say enough how ‘blown’ away I am over it. Kevin ensured well before our take off days before with the best open communication. I was celebrating a two year anniversary with my girlfriend and this was a perfect ending to our getaway. Kevin is the heartbeat of this wonderful balloon ride. He has created an immersive, safe, and fun ride that is one you’ll never forget. He even dropped us down into the gorge and got our feet wet for a quick second! There was moments we could have grabbed a leaf off the highest trees in the park. So much I can’t list and don’t want to spoil! Even on Father’s Day, he was out with the biggest smile and had his wife and kids along spending time with the whole gig. From take off to landing, it was an experience we will never forget. At the end such a great surprise with a treat to toast the night and a hug to say goodbye as he was a great friend. We can’t say enough and also can’t wait to be back in the air with Kevin! Thank you is not enough, Kevin and family! Such amazing people! Thank you again for such an amazing trip through and over Letchworth Park!!" Our best, Bill & Tabi

"We had the most amazing balloon ride with Genesee Falls Balloon on June 26th for my boyfriend's birthday. The experience could not have been any more perfect... perfect winds, bright skies, breathtaking dips for leaves and over the treeline, incredible view of Letchworth and surrounding areas, exciting landing... we absolutely loved it all!!! Kevin is a great communicator. He responded immediately to my questions, and on the day of our ride he called twice to provide updates on weather and to tweek our meeting time. We learned that Kevin is an art teacher, and this truly comes out in his navigation...the ride feels poetic and artistic. His crew and family were very helpful and professional. We realize there are several choices for balloon rides around Letchworth, if you choose this group you will not be disappointed. We would definitely recommend them! 5 STARS well deserved!!!!"
