Tethered Balloon Rides

Balloon being tethered for passenger rides


Tethering a balloon for rides is an excellent way to entertain a crowd at a fund raiser, music concert, corporate open house, grand opening, birthday, anniversary, wedding or any other function. During a tether flight, the balloon is tied to the ground with 100-150 foot ropes. These ropes keep the balloon from drifting away in free flight and allow the pilot to cycle the balloon up and down and give passengers a thrilling "lift" above the crowd for a unique view of the surrounding area.

Weather conditions also affect tethered balloon rides. Ideally calm or light winds are preferable; this is why it is best to schedule a tether in the early morning, late afternoon or evening. The location for the tether must be of adequate size for the balloon, ropes and tether vehicles.

We will gladly survey your location if it is within 20 miles of Miami for a fee of $50. A survey will allow us to determine the suitability of the location to tether a hot air balloon. An additional charge will be assessed to survey locations that are further than 20 miles from Miami.

Tether Rates

$800 per hour for first hour with a 1 hour minimum

$700 per hour after first hour

A 7% Florida sales tax applies to all tethers

A non-refundable "show up" fee of $450 is due upon scheduling a balloon tether event. This fee is deducted from the total cost of the tether once the rides are completed. The "show-up" fee covers the expense of crew and transportation to and from the tether location. This fee applies only to locations within Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Locations outside of Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties will incur additional "show up" costs. We are licensed and insured for tethered rides. If your organization has special insurance requirements please let us know. If you have any questions please give us a call:
