Philadelphia Hot Air Balloon Ride

Drift Over Beautiful Bucks County on a Relaxing Hot Air Balloon Flight

participants Price for 1 Participant

Experience a thrilling basket ride in a hot air balloon flight over Philadelphia where you will enjoy the sights of Bucks County at either sunrise or just a few hours before sunset.  You will begin at the launch site as you assist your pilot with the inflation of the balloon.

 Once aloft, you will fly high enough for panoramic views and low enough to enjoy the excitement of skimming a river or tree tops. You will fly at different altitudes to use the varying wind layers to "steer" the balloon. These winds will take you about 6 miles over the course of the one hour flight. Since you will not fly back to the launch site, the experienced chase crew will be in radio contact and follow you throughout the flight.

They will be there when you land to help pack up the balloon and take you back to the launch site. This is a great experience that will create lasting memories!

Question: How many people can fit on this balloon ride. Is it suitable for two people?

Answer: On a normal public flight the balloon will carry up to eight passengers plus the pilot.

Question: I am looking to purchase this gift certificate for my son and wife for Christmas. My son is 10 years old. Would he be too young for this?

Answer: For the Philadelphia Hot Air Balloon Ride participants must be able to stand for a minimum of 90 minutes, should be at least 8 years of age and also a minimum of 4’ tall.

Question: What will the temperature be like? Should we bring extra layers?

Answer: The temperature only changes about 1 or 2 degrees every thousand feet. For most of your flight, the temperature will be between 1 and 4 degrees cooler than the temperature on the ground – barely noticeable. Plus the balloon will be pushed by the wind. So no wind chill!

Question: How does the pilot steer the balloon?

Answer: He doesn't really steer. The wind changes directions at different altitude, so by ascending and descending he can change the direction the balloon is traveling. Part of the fun of the hot air balloon is you never know exactly where you are going to land.

Question: Where will we take off / land?

Answer: The balloons take normally take off from an open field at Quakertown Airport. Because balloons fly with the wind, the landing site changes virtually every flight. Generally, it will be an open field somewhere within a 10-mile radius of our launch point. Exact location details will be provided with the confirmation of your booking.
