TETHERED BALLOON RIDES
Are you looking for an attention grabbing component to ensure that your next event is an unforgettable and distinctive affair? Consider offering tethered hot air balloon rides! If you are hosting an outdoor event, tethered hot air balloons can help you attract crowds and excite your guests. Many people would love the opportunity to ride in a tethered hot air balloon, and by offering this experience at your event you are sure to attract more publicity, encourage greater attendance, and create a unique and thrilling experience for your guests.
A tethered hot air balloon is a hot air balloon that is secured to the ground with several strong ropes. The ropes ensure that the balloon stays in the same location, and is only able to travel up and down at the allotted height. A tethered balloon can fly anywhere between 25 and 100 feet in the air and can accommodate a large number of people of all ages. On average, 50-75 people can usually fly per hour in our tethered hot air balloons. Our colorful balloons stand approximately 80 feet tall when inflated, adding a WOW factor to the visual impact of any event!
A tethered hot air balloon is perfectly safe for passengers of all ages. For a safe flight, a large outdoor space with no overhead wires or cables nearby is necessary. In addition, when promoting a tethered hot air balloon at your event, it is important to use the words “wind and weather permitting.” Tethered hot air balloon rides are very safe, and our pilots and crews are trained professionals with passenger safety as their main priority, but the weather can be unpredictable and the balloon will only be inflated if the winds are calm and the weather is fair.
A static display is when we inflate the balloon to stand upright but do not take off. During static displays we typically let people into the baskets for pictures, and let the propane burner do its magic. This is most commonly known as a glow when done after sunset. Glows attract a wide audience and many love to see the balloon colors illuminate against the night sky.
You will need to have a large outdoor space with no overhead wires or cables nearby. In addition, it is important to advertise the static display as “wind and weather permitting.” Static displays are very safe for guests and our pilots and crews are trained professionals with guest safety as their number one priority. Weather and wind can be unpredictable and static displays will only occur under safe conditions.

Static display hot air balloons are safe and exciting attractions that will enhance the excitement of any event.
