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.

 
 

CONDITIONS

The following conditions must be met for tethered rides to take place.

  1. 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.

  2. Good crowd control for safety and organization of rides.
