FAQ

Can I see balloons up all day?

  • No.  Balloons can’t inflate or fly in winds, and the winds almost always get stronger throughout the day.  This is why the ONLY inflate and launch at sunrise and sunset.  This includes the tethered balloon.

Can I prepurchase ride tickets?

  • For the hour long hot air balloon rides, you can book your tickets through our exclusive ride provider here.
  • For tethered balloon rides and helicopter rides, you can only purchase them onsite.
