TETHERED BALLOON RIDES
Want to feel the excitement of riding a hot air balloon?
Tethered balloon rides are hot air balloons tied to the ground by high-tensile strength ropes so that they don’t fly away! Tethering permits the pilot to lift off the ground, float up to 30-40 feet in the air for a short ride and return to the same position.
Tethered Balloon Rides can be purchased at the festival for $10 Children $20 Adults.
If you don’t like to wait in line the Fast-Pass ticket allows you priority boarding. Fast-Pass Tickets available to purchase online for $15 Children $25 Adults
Tethered hot air balloon rides have a separate cost from festival’s admission tickets.
Only the Tethered Ride tickets are REFUNDABLE at the point of purchase if they have not been scanned.
