What is a tethered balloon ride? The balloon lifts off the ground, hovers 20-40 feet above, but does not launch and fly away.

Tethered Balloon Rides - Cash Only
Adults - $20 
Children 6-12 years old - $10.

Passengers must be at least 6 years old. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent / legal guardian and they must sign a release for the child.

The minimum height requirement is 48". Adults are NOT permitted to hold a child in their arms during the tethered ride.
These balloons are not certified by the FAA to carry wheelchairs. Listen for announcements from the Main Stage on when tethered rides will open and close.

Sales will be offered Friday - Sunday, weather permitting on a first come first serve basis and at the individual pilot's discretion.

​The balloon usually accommodates 10-12 people. 

The major draw for this Balloon Festival will be the 16 magnificent, colorful, hot air balloons. Fun for all ages, don't be surprised if you recognize one or two special shapes!
