A “tether” is when we anchor one our hot air balloons to the ground to launch and land over and over again in the very same spot. It’s an excellent way to give a short ride in a real hot air balloon to large groups of people over several hours. Our team specializes in providing these tethers, and our doored-entry basket allows us to take far more people per hour than our competitors and removes the need for passengers to climb up and over a traditional basket.
A hot air balloon tether requires a good open spot to launch from. For distant events, we’ll require a few vehicles to use as anchor points. Our team takes care of the rest! As with all ballooning activities, tethers are extremely weather dependent and require ideal conditions to be conducted safely. In addition, all ballooning activities take place in the morning or evening when winds are at their calmest points. We’ve provided tethers all across the country at venues large and small, and they are almost always the crowd favorite.
Our easy access door basket makes entering and exiting the basket very easy.
Pricing for tethers is dependent on several factors, including things like location, expected number of passengers, and desired duration. Please get in touch and we’ll be glad to answer your questions and put together a no-obligation quote for you. Typically, we charge in one of two ways:
Option #1: We charge a setup fee, as well as a per-occupant fee.
Option #2: We charge a flat hourly rate.
