Tethered BALLOON RIDES
During a tether ride, passengers climb aboard the aircraft for a short ride. The balloon is securely anchored to the ground via a series of high-tensile strength ropes and carabiners. Then, the hot air balloon ascends to a height of 50′ or less. Rides generally last about 5 minutes, including the on-boarding, ascent, decent and off-boarding.
The following conditions must be met for tethered rides to take place.
Very good weather conditions (winds less than 5 mph, with no moisture in the air). The best conditions for flying or tethering balloons are early mornings or late evenings.
Good crowd control for safety and organization of rides.
$20 for adults
$15 for ages 8 and under
*Cash ONLY payments will be accepted prior to your ride*
