>You luck!  I've always wanted to fly in a balloon!

It's ... odd.  When the burner isn't running, there's very little noise,
as you're floating with the wind.  You can float over someone's garden,
several hundred feet up, and chat to them.

The landing (which is more of a controlled crash, IME) is probably the
most exciting part.
