Things you should know about Ballooning:

Rides last about an hour. However, the whole event is about three hours including unpacking and packing the balloon.

Hot air ballooning is an extremely weather temperamental sport, and each flight is subject to cancellation due to adverse weather conditions for various reasons. While we know you are anxious to experience the thrill of ballooning, our top priority is always safety.

The pilot has the final authority on the status of the flight; if it is necessary, we will be happy to reschedule your flight to a later date.

Tethered Events - $700/hr (2hr. Minimum)

Tethers are perfect for weddings, special birthday parties, family picnics, corporate events, or wherever high profile advertising is needed. Tethers are arranged for either a static type setup, where the balloon remains on the ground, or for a ride experience where the balloon gently rises 50-100 feet up into the air and then settles back where it started. A large area is needed for tethers, free of obstacles, power lines, trees, light posts etc. Perfect for the outdoor wedding where conditions permit. Of course, all tethers are subject to weather. All safety concerns and considerations will be determined by the pilot prior to balloon setup.

Things you should know about Tethering:

The entire balloon tether experience lasts approximately 3-4 hours. This includes the time to arrive at the balloon launch site, balloon setup, flying time, and packing up the balloon. Tethering the balloon is a labor intensive event. It takes a minimum of 250 X 250 feet of space and three vehicles to secure the balloon along with a complex setup of ropes to ensure the safety of the tether. Additional costs apply for out of area tethers. Please contact us for additional information.
