Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

I've called LaQuinda three times in the last week and left 3 messages. I was hoping to get some information before jumping in the car for a 6 hour round trip, to no avail.

Lauren, though helicopter rides have been available in the past, we spoke with the event coordinator and confirmed that they will unfortunately not be happening at the 2014 event. For more information, please call 918-259-1479. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Hi! i see here there are helicopter flights, does this mean you can ride in a helicopter? If so I don't see this anywhere on their website, cost or otherwise. I see the tethered balloon flights and everything else. Do you have any more information on this?

Tom, the website is correct. Gatesway is a non-profit based in Broken Arrow, although the balloon festival is held in Claremore. You can find a schedule of events by clicking through on the website page. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!
