Are you planning a party, wedding reception, corporate or special event? A hot air balloon tether is the perfect activity to give your event a "WOW!" factor. A balloon tether is simply a hot air balloon which is tied to the ground with special ropes that only allow it to rise to a low altitude of 50-75 feet. Because the balloon is secured to the ground it does not float away with the wind as it does in normal flight. It is a great way to introduce the hot air balloon flight experience to a large group of guests. The balloon can make multiple ascents changing passengers each time. Each flight lasts about 5 minutes, accommodating 30-40 passengers per hour. Typical balloon tethers are two hours in length. As with a balloon flight, tethers are offered in the early morning or after sunset.
A balloon tether in the evening is classified as a balloon glow. It offers an additional element of excitement as the balloon lights up like a giant light bulb making it the ideal backdrop for your event. Tethering a hot air balloon requires an area of 100 ft. x 100 ft. free of obstructions and power lines. Our balloon vehicles must be able to access the designated area. A balloon tether is an excellent way to bring exposure to your business. Imagine having your name on a seven story billboard in your parking lot at a grand opening or special event.
