Experience the fun and adventure of riding in a Hot Air Balloon during this exciting sixty-minute airborne adventure over Chicagoland.
Your experience gift begins when you meet your Pilot and their Crew at the launch location. You will start off helping with the inflation of the balloon at Sunrise or just before Sunset. Once Pilot determines that the balloon is ready for flight, you and the rest of the guests will climb into the basket as the Pilot continues to heat the air inside the balloon's envelope. When it becomes "lighter than air" the Balloon will ascend to the approximate height of the Willis (Sears) Tower, over 1,000 feet! Enjoy breathtaking views of the beautiful Illinois landscape below - so don't forget your camera!
Upon landing, you'll enjoy a traditional champagne toast before helping the Pilot and Crew pack up the balloon and head back to the original launch location. So whether you are looking for a unique gift or for a way to celebrate a special occasion, this Chicago Balloon Ride is the ticket!
