(Hopefully that makes sense! I saw the photo in the news article above and thought it would be a good topic to use for trying to write a complex sentence in Japanese. :))

RE: verbてみたい

Makes perfect sense! すばらしい!充分通じます。
Of course 「いつか乗りたいです。」 is correct.
いつか乗ってみたいです。/ いつか乗ってみたいと思います。 would also be nice, I suppose.
(verbて形+ み) + たい form. (try to do something) +( want to)
e.g. たべてみる−る + たい =たべて+み+ たい =食べてみたい
食べてみたい can express "I want to eat it as my experience/challenge".
Please look up てみたい with WWWJIC Example search.

でも、きっと怖いだろうと思います。may be another way to say.
(Hope my English makes sense. :p)
とても うまく書けていると思います。 上達が速いですね。

Your English is great! I forgot about the てみたい form for expressing the desire to try something; I will definitely need to remember that. I like your suggestions for だろう and きっと too, in the last sentence.

もう一度やってみます... ;)

私は熱気球についてあまり知識がありませんが、いつか乗ってみたいです。 でも、きっと怖いだろうと思いますよ。
