HIGH FLYING ADVENTURES –
HOT AIR BALLOON TETHERED RIDES AND BALLOON GLOWS
With High Flying Adventures, the sky is the limit! We offer tethered hot air balloon adventures and balloon GLOW events to college and university campuses that can be personalized for your program. Our FAA commercial licensed pilots come to your campus with a beautiful hot air balloon or balloons to offer a unique form of entertainment and adventure.
Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides
Tethered balloon events require a site with a 150’ radius in, preferably, a low lying area. The standard balloon holds 5 – 6 passengers, depending on weight, and ride up to 30’ - 130’ feet. The large passenger balloon (only available in some areas) holds 9 – 10 passengers, depending on weight. * Extra fees apply for the larger passenger balloon.
Total ride time can be adjusted to fit your event needs, but we can accommodate 75 passengers per hour on average in a standard balloon and 140 passengers per hour in a larger passenger balloon.
Multiple balloons are available to increase the number of participants. Events are booked for sunrise or sunset and can be two to four hours or more in length.
This magical and highly visible event is sure to bring excitement to campus and gather a large crowd. It is also well suited to book in conjunction with one of our photo events, to ensure that each passenger has a souvenir from the day.
Ask about adding personalized banners to the side of the balloon. This is a great way to include promotional opportunities into the event.
Balloon Glows are a great addition to large outdoor events. They are custom-created based on budget and site layout and are perfect for Homecoming, outdoor concerts, and any event where you want to make a statement. The balloons perform a variety of twinkling burns or all burn glows creating a beautiful nighttime presentation. The glow pattern can even be synchronized to coordinate with music. Whether you bring in one balloon or up to ten balloons or more, this is a show-stopping and unique presentation custom-created for your event.
We have hot air balloon operators available nationwide!
[APR 2017] “It was excellent, yet again! Brian is incredible. Even though it was really windy, he did all he could to get the balloon in the air. He even stayed much later to make sure everyone got to ride. Very professional, excellent service, and made for an incredible event.” – Erin Riordan-Dye, Associate Director of New Student Programs & Student Activities, Marietta College, Marietta, OH
[AUG 2016] “The hot air balloon event was great! We love working with Brian R. and his team! Students had an amazing time and as always wish it can be longer. We look forward to working with y’all in the future!” – Sam Mendoza, Coordinator for Student Programs & Activities, Angelo State University
The Balloonist’s Blessing
The winds have welcomed you with softness
The sun has blessed you with warm hands
You have flown so high and so well
That God had joined you in your laughter
and set you gently back into the loving arms of mother earth.
