Hot Air Balloon Tethers

A “tether” is when we anchor one our hot air balloons to the ground to launch and land over and over again in the very same spot. It’s an excellent way to give a short ride in a real hot air balloon to large groups of people over several hours. Our team specializes in providing these tethers, and our multiple doored-entry baskets allows us to take far more people per hour than our competitors and removes the need for passengers to climb up and over a traditional basket.

A hot air balloon tether require a good open spot to launch from. For distant events, we’ll require a few vehicles to use as anchor points. Our team takes care of the rest! As with all ballooning activities, tethers are extremely weather dependent and require ideal conditions to be conducted safely. In addition, all ballooning activities take place in the morning or evening when winds are at their calmest points. We’ve provided tethers all across the country at venues large and small, and they are almost always the crowd favorite.
