Tethered Balloon Rides

Experience the thrill of flight in a tethered hot air balloon ride!

Available both evenings!

Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides

The tether balloon can take between 4 and 8 people at a time (depending on their size) up to between 50 and 100 feet in the air.  This balloon is secured to the ground by heavy vehicles and strong ropes.  The trip will last about 5 minutes or so, long enough to get a birds-eye view of the festival and experience a little about how a free flight might be.  Passengers often remark “this is higher that it looks from down there”.  


This special balloon can also accommodate persons in wheelchairs, or have difficulty standing and can sit in a chair for the tethered flight.  In this configuration, 3 other people can fly with the wheelchair-bound person.  The basket actually has a door with a clear panel so even sitting down the rider can get a great view.  This is also helpful for smaller children to be able to see out as well.  Persons with electric wheelchairs will need to be able to transfer to a standard wheelchair (provided).
