Booking Your Hot Air Balloon Ride:
Here in the Indianapolis area, the most stable weather for hot air balloon flights occurs from June through November. Clear days, light winds, and sunshine prevail during these months - ideal conditions for hot air ballooning! Whether your flight takes you over Morse Reservoir, Conner Prairie, White River or the attractive Indianapolis suburbs, you are sure to enjoy the view and the memories captured in photos! Call us for all the details or scroll down to learn more about our balloon ride pricing and options.
Balloon Inflation and Launch:
Setting up the equipment for a hot air balloon flight presents many opportunities for your participation, as well as great photo-ops. Family and friends are welcome to lend a hand to see what it is like to crew on a hot air balloon team, while adults and kids alike enjoy learning about how the system works and what materials are used in hot air balloon construction. Generally it takes about 20 minutes to set the equipment up and prepare for launch. The excitement is part of the fun!
Hot Air Balloon Lift-Off:
Floating like a cloud on the wind currents, you will get a breathtaking bird's eye view of Indiana's farms, reservoirs, and residential neighborhoods like Carmel, Fishers, and Noblesville. “Where will we land?” is a familiar question, but as your flight continues you realize it is not about the destination, it’s all about the journey! Relax, and enjoy the scenery. Our friendly crew will be waiting to welcome you back to Earth at flight’s end. Once packed up, we will all return to our starting point - knowing we’ve shared a special occasion together!
We offer both reserved and stand-by hot air balloon rides:
