Your Hot Air Balloon Experience
The US Hot Air Balloon Team schedules balloon launches at sunrise and sunset each day, April through November. Just choose your launch time when you book your flight!
Plan about 2.5 to 3 hours for your hot air balloon experience. Flights last approximately 1 hour. Your experience begins on the ground, where you’ll work with our experienced crew to get the balloon ready for launch. Bring your camera for some candid shots with the crew!
After the balloon is ready, you’ll climb aboard and start your flight. In-flight you’ll witness the scenic views of Chester, Montgomery and Berks counties including tree-covered, rolling hills and majestic views of the Schuylkill River and its tributaries, the Philadelphia skyline, and little towns and villages that make up the backdrop near the Philadelphia area.
Upon landing, you’ll ride back to the launch site in a comfortable, air conditioned van, where you’ll enjoy a light snack and champagne toast with your pilot and crew, celebrating a successful flight. You’ll also receive your flight certificate to commemorate your flight. It’s even suitable for framing!
