About This Experience

General Information hide

Discover first-hand the thrill of riding in a Hot Air Balloon during this exciting airborne adventure over Northern North Carolina.

The fun begins when you meet with your Pilot in East Bend, just about an 30 minutes northwest of Winston-Salem. He will escort you to the best launch location in the Yadkin Valley for the day. You will then have the opportunity to aid in the unpacking and inflating of the balloon’s envelope. Once fully inflated, you and the rest of the passengers will climb into the balloon's basket where your scenic airborne adventure begins. Throughout the flight you will enjoy views of the picturesque Yadkin Valley scenery below. Float above the tree tops, view wildlife and wave at the onlookers below as you soar peacefully during this Ballooning Adventure.

At the conclusion of your flight you’ll enjoy a complimentary champagne toast. So whether you are looking for a unique gift or for a way to celebrate a special occasion, this Winston-Salem Balloon Ride is the ticket!
