Balloon Race

Balloon Race

Race the Clouds in Your Own Hot Air Balloon!

When you need a breath of fresh air, it’s time to lift off, in your very own hot air balloon flying high over the Fest Area. Climb into a basket under one of the colorfully striped balloons and get ready to soar in style!

Up, up, and away, more than a dozen feet high! Now you’re really cruising as your personal hot air balloon circles, floating up and around in a whooshing circle. As you race with the wind, you’ll enjoy a great view of the neighborhood below your basket on your light-hearted flight through the trees.

As you spin a little faster, the balloons tilt and wave. This may be a little intense for first-time flyers, but there’s room for two or three friends to conquer the jitters with smiles. You’ll get the “hang” of it in no time!
