About Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides

A tethered hot air balloon ride is usually found at hot air balloon festivals, but is also a very popular way of adding a lot of fun and excitement to any large gathering of people. Typical events where we might serve tethered hot air balloon rides would be wedding parties, corporate parties and family reunions.

What is a Tethered Balloon Ride?

A tethered balloon ride is one where the balloon boards passengers then goes aloft to a low altitude while remaining tethered to the ground using straps or lines. Ideal for people with fears of flying or heights, it is the safest possible way to experience a hot air balloon ride. The rides typically last a few minutes each, and over a hundred people easily can be flown in a single 2 hour session.

Cost of Tethered Balloon Rides

Although we have a minimum fee of $2000 per event for a minimum two hours of tethered rides, this cost can be deferred by you if necessary. This is usually done by charging your attendees a fee per ride (usually around $25 each). In some cases we can charge each passenger, but the organizer must guarantee we meet our minimum fees.
