    For anyone that is looking to do something different I've just booked this on Groupon for $126.75 with BIG25 coupon code. Better than half price.

    Keep in mind with hot air balloon rides that the wind has to be pretty calm. Usually around 10 MPH or less. And in Vegas it gets very windy of course. So if you are in town and have a reservation on a windy day, too bad, you're out of luck. And even if the next day isn't windy there may not be any openings.

    Good point. We are there for 17 days so hopefully it could be rescheduled or a refund. Never had too many windy days in May/June when we are there. Fingers crossed.

    17 days you should be good, especially if you book for one of the early days you are there. Be sure to check with them ahead of time if they will have openings in the days following your reservation and if in fact you can get a refund if it doesn't work out.

    Yep, thanks. Have it all confirmed. Need to ring the previous evening to check departure and weather. Got it booked first morning so plenty of time to reschedule. All very simple apart from Brits can't book on Groupin with a UK credit card and address. Had to get my friend's cousin to do it and send it to us a gift.

    If anyone knows a way round that then let me know. I found a way around it on Restaurant.com but not on Groupon.
