Have you ever seen a commercial where someone or some kids were getting hot air balloon rides and it looked fun? Did you ever imagine yourself in their place and try and figure out what the experience would be like? many people think that way. A lot of people just cant seem to put together how the balloon is inflated, or even how it is powered to float the way it does, considering there are never any visible handles in sight. It sounds and look like it would be an awesome experience for anyone willing to go for it. In 1783, Hot air balloons were discovered when people discovered tat a fabric bag with hot hair would rise. This theory was tested before passengers were even brought into the idea, but before humans had the opportunity to experience the ride, animals were sent up instead for testing out this theory. Then one day the first hot hair balloon ride with humans took place with two men aboard. This balloon was said to have stayed up 23 minutes and there a great idea had entered the world. Hot air balloon rides are safe but people should always be aware of the people that are operating the balloon and know what credentials make them qualified to operate the balloon. You are responsible for your own safety, so be knowledgeable before making that decision.
