    Imagine this: You live a simple life in a simple time. Nothing out of the ordinary happens to you, until now. Five minutes ago you received a mysterious phone call. The caller stated that they work for the government and they need your help. Your neighbor has been detained and they believe he has created a device that will destroy America. The device is set to activate within the hour and they will not be able to reach it in time. They need you to go to his house and steal the device. Gather your wits and collect your courage because the game is afoot. But even still, things are bound to get tough. Each game can accommodates 2-6 players, so you won’t have to go it alone.

    Hot Air Balloon Sunset Flight (Del Mar)

    Fond of getting your head in the clouds? Treat yourself to a true flight of fancy during a sunset balloon trip over Del Mar, California! You’ll enjoy incredible sky-high looks at this affluent beach town, replete with shimmering coastline and million-dollar estates! Adding the scenery, polo fields and canyons abound, along with wildlife such as jackrabbits and deer, forming the backdrop to a journey that you’ll find both surreal and inspiring. Taking off near sunset, this romantic voyage is the perfect way to celebrate another successful turning of the Earth, especially as the lights beneath you flick on with the onset of night. You’ll be riding in comfort from the intimate confines of a two-passenger basket hoisted in the air by a 7-foot “panda” balloon, making it the perfect experience to share with a significant other.
