Looking for new things to do near Philly?

Hoping to find a fantastic day trip yet stay close to Philadelphia? The wonder of a hot air balloon comes in breathtaking views that wait for you from above in the nearby Philadelphia skyline. Lancaster Hot Air Balloon Team schedules balloon rides at sunrise and sunset each day, all year round! When you select your group or private flight, just set your launch time using our nearby Chester  or Bucks County, PA location, depending on where you are in the metro area.

Feast Your Eyes On Philadephia Views

All told, launch, flight, landing, and retrieval mean about 3 hours of fun for a hot air balloon ride experience. The flight will last approximately 1 hour. But first, you’ll meet the crew at the balloon launch site at our nearby Philly location in Bucks County, PA (only about 15 minutes from downtown Philadelphia), where you can volunteer to help them prepare the balloon for launch. Be sure to bring your camera to take shots of the beautiful Delaware area underfoot.
