Want to get that experience and “feeling” of a balloon flight without leaving the venue, then a Hot Air Tethered ride is a great way to enjoy the experience.
What is a Tethered Balloon Ride?
A Tethered Ride gives riders a taste of Ballooning while anchored down to the ground by high-tensile strength ropes only floating up to 80 feet in the air. Passengers climb aboard the aircraft for a short ride. Tether Rides are a great way for small children or elders to experience a balloon ride, also ideal for people with fears of flying or heights. All passengers must be in good health, if you are pregnant, recently released from the hospital, have current broken bones or casts, you will not be able to qualify to purchase a ride. These balloons are not certified by the FAA to carry wheelchairs. The pilot will also be available to determine who can fly!
Tethered rides are available for purchase during the festival weekend and online. Like all other Balloon Rides, tethered rides are also weather permitting; are on a first come, first serve basis and at the individual pilot’s discretion.
An Ascension Ride or the typical balloon ride is between 30 – 40 minutes with the whole experience taking about 2 hours. The balloons take off and soar hundreds of feet in the air, gracefully moving over the landscapes. The balloons land outside the festival grounds and then are transported back to the festival. They are available for purchase before and during the festival for $300.00 per person.
