GLO Music and Balloon FestivalNovember, 28,29,30 & December 1, 2019 at the Alamodome, San Antonio, TX
An Ascension Ride or the typical balloon ride is between 30 – 40 minutes with the whole experience taking about 2 hours. The pilot will designate the meeting location and the time to leave, usually prior to sunrise (6 am). The balloons take off from a different location prior to sunrise (6 am) and soar hundreds of feet in the air, gracefully moving over the landscapes. When the balloons land you are transported back to the takeoff location by vehicle. They are available for purchase before and during the festival for $300.00 per person. Depending on the number of people in your party and based upon the size of the basket you may be paired with others during this flight. You may discuss this directly with the pilot when they contact you.
All balloon rides are wind and weather dependent and subject to the pilot’s discretion. 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! Ascension Ride tickets are REFUNDABLE only if the ride does not take place due to weather or cancellation of the flight.

Tethered Balloon Rides can be purchased at the festival for $15 Children $25 Adults.
