The state of PA has classified our business as a non-essential business and therefore our physical offices are closed. We are doing our best to work from home to service our clients and looking forward to the coming balloon season.
We are taking bookings beginning June 4, 2020, with the intention of beginning the 2020 balloon flight season, pending approval.
Booking dates are available on our website Or call us at 800-763-5987.
We have decided to cancel Hershey & Gettysburg flights for the 2020 season. We look forward to reopening these locations for the 2021 season.
Thank You ~ Stan & Jake, Owners
For the 2020 season, we'll be flying from three locations, each with their own personality… You’re going to love them all!
The United States Hot Air Balloon Team is the premier ballooning company in Southeastern Pennsylvania, providing hot air balloon rides over the Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Maryland countryside. When you fly with the United States Hot Air Balloon Team, virtually every flight is a new and different adventure.
Flying as high as a mile under the whim of the breeze, our flights head a different direction each and every time. Whether drifting across treetops or hovering on the water of the Schuylkill River we guarantee a new adventure each flight! Call today or reserve your hot air balloon ride online at any of our unique locations.
What is involved in the hot air balloon ride?
What makes our hot air balloon flights so memorable is that they are much more than just the ride itself.
If you so wish, you are encouraged to take part in the inflation of the balloon. Learn ballooning insight from the experts themselves from flight launch to landing. We also provide a champagne toast and refreshments. Transportation back to the launch site is included. Don’t forget to bring your camera so we can catch your memories on film!

Frequently Asked Questions
We offer rides in our balloons year-round (weather dependent), but our primary season with a more routine schedule is April through November. Sunrise and sunset flights occur daily from launch points in southeastern Pennsylvania. 3-day and 5-day PA Adventure Tours are coordinated to fit your schedule.
The entire experience is 2 1/2 – 3 hours from start to finish, including hands-on launch, an hour-long flight, refreshments and transport.
A typical flight will include 4-10 people. However, if you are interested in a private, romantic flight, we offer couples-only flights as well.
Dress to be comfortable as you would if you were on the ground depending upon the day’s weather conditions. Because a hot air balloon travels at the same speed as the air around it, wind chill factors are eliminated, so if anything, it is typically a bit warmer in the balloons. Do not overdress, particularly in the summer.
Riders of our balloons must be of age 6 and up. There are no height requirements.
