Where to go for Balloon Jumps? Can't Post

Hi there,

I live in upstate New York but would be willing to drive a few hours to do some balloon jumps. I realize the season is just starting back up again up here, but if anyone could give me the right idea that would be great.

They're having balloon jumps at Skyfest this year...at Skydive Carolina in Chester, SC. Balloon jumps are not all that common, besides at Eloy in the winter, at least as far as I know. So it might be worth that drive.

Just remember, first boogie = Beer!!
Also, first balloon jump = more Beer!!

Check out the website and register for a jump. The balloon jumps are pretty popular, and space is limited. Info should be in the skyfest thread. Smile

...well, they certainly are not a dime a dozen BUT they are a little more common than that! If you do a search in this forum and narrow it down to the last 2 years you will find 200+ posts with "Balloon" in it. Tons of boogies have balloon jumps....look for ads in the Skydiving rags and you will see them advertised.

Good luck in finding one! They are wicked fun Smile
