Pittsburgh Hot Air Balloon Experience

Once in the air, you’ll bear witness to some breathtaking views for about one hour, including:
  • Headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay (on a clear day)
  • Amish Country
  • Lakes, Rivers, and streams
  • Small towns
  • Rolling farmlands
  • Vineyards
  • Horse farms
  • Wildlife
The flight might be over as soon as you land, but the ride is not. You and the hot air balloon crew will ride back to the nearby launch location in a comfortable, cool van. At that point, you’ll be invited to participate in a champagne toast and are encouraged to celebrate with your fellow passengers. Additionally, each passenger receives a flight certificate for framing; make sure to get yours when before you head home. Enjoy the ride.
