Read these tips to streamline the ticket purchase process.

Other Important Information
Winds and rain affect balloon inflation. Balloon tether rides are best with wind speeds under 8 miles per hour with no strong gusts. Prevailing weather and winds may postpone or delay ballooning operations.
We ask for your patience if balloon tether rides are delayed. SAFETY OF OUR PASSENGERS IS OUR PRIMARY CONCERN.
Refunds for ride tickets will be made ONLY at the ticket tent on the day of cancellation to individuals who have not used their tickets.
