Floating into the sky via balloon isn’t only reserved for animated movies. Erik Roner, a professional skier and avid BASE jumper, channels the movie UP last month. According to Huffpost, with the help of friends and family, Roner tied 90 helium-filled balloons to a lawn chair and soared to a height of 8,000 feet.

To descend, Roner free fell, and then parachuted to the ground. Roner stated that it was a childhood dream fulfilled.
