Scott and Laurie Spencer are best known for piloting Disney’s world famous “Happiest Balloon on Earth” (Mickey Mouse) and the official “Coca-Cola” hot air balloon fleet along with Boise favorites “Tic Toc” presented by St Luke’s and “Speedy” Special Shaped balloons. While their balloon rides are offered on a very limited basis here in southwest Idaho, they still enjoy sharing their sport and providing them to their customers. Hot air balloon flights are not Scott & Laurie’s primary business; but when their schedule allows, they regularly book a very limited number of special balloon rides with the general public. Check off "hot air ballooning" off your bucket list, and enjoy an exciting, informative and quite literally, “high” adventure with the Spencer's and other passengers.
