#1 Question

What is involved in the hot air balloon ride?

What makes our hot air balloon flights so memorable is that they are much more than just the ride itself.
If you so wish, you are encouraged to take part in the inflation of the balloon. Learn ballooning insight from the experts themselves from flight launch to landing. We also provide a champagne toast and refreshments. Transportation back to the launch site is included. Don’t forget to bring your camera so we can catch your memories on film!

Frequently Asked Questions

We offer rides in our balloons year-round (weather dependent), but our primary season with a more routine schedule is April through November. Sunrise and sunset flights occur daily from launch points in southeastern Pennsylvania. 3-day and 5-day PA Adventure Tours are coordinated to fit your schedule.
The entire experience is 2 1/2 – 3 hours from start to finish, including hands-on launch, an hour-long flight, refreshments and transport.
A typical flight will include 4-10 people. However, if you are interested in a private, romantic flight, we offer couples-only flights as well.

Dress to be comfortable as you would if you were on the ground depending upon the day’s weather conditions. Because a hot air balloon travels at the same speed as the air around it, wind chill factors are eliminated, so if anything, it is typically a bit warmer in the balloons. Do not overdress, particularly in the summer.

Riders of our balloons must be of age 6 and up. There are no height requirements.
