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.
What You'll See
In-flight, you’ll witness scenic views of Chester, Montgomery, and Berks counties, such as:
- Majestic views of the Schuylkill River and its tributaries
- Philadelphia skyline
- Tree-covered, rolling hills
- Small towns and villages that make up the Delaware Valley backdrop near Philadelphia
- Main Line of Philadelphia
- On a clear day, you might even see into New Jersey, Delaware, and/or the Delaware Bay
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 hot air balloon ride near Philadelphia. It’s even suitable for framing!
Fun & Romantic Things to Do in Philadelphia
Whether you’re on vacation or just want to jazz up your day-to-day routine, one of the best things to do in the Philadelphia area is take a hot air balloon flight over the majestic countryside of Chester, Montgomery, and Berks counties. Helicopter rides in Philadelphia are noisy. Hot air balloon rides let you hear the sounds of the city and surrounding peaceful countryside. Plus, you won't have to wear a clunky headset in order to talk to each other.
With daily flights at sunrise and sunset all year-round, there’s never been a better time to experience the freedom of the open air for yourself! Come join the United States Hot Air Balloon Team for a magical 1-hour hot air balloon flight for an experience you won’t soon forget!
Private flights are perfect for:
- Fun date activity near Philadelphia (they’ll be on cloud nine)
- Romantic Anniversary Celebrations (reminisce while floating gently through the air)
- Proposals/Engagements (propose in the air!)
- Unique Weddings (get married in the air – seriously!)
- Memorable Client Appreciation (they won’t remember that gift basket anyway…)
- Employee Appreciation (lunch just isn’t nearly as memorable!)
- Potential Clients (stand out from competitors…)

The captain answered all the questions asked. The chase crew worked
very hard, and brought us down to earth safely.
If you have a bucket list, this better be on it. I'm... afraid of heights, but
had zero issues. Make sure you tip these guys, they work hard.

Realizing it was slowly starting to descend, we decided to follow it. We were able to watch the... beautiful sight of the balloon "touch down"! It was amazing!
As a croud gathered around, we watched in awe how the team on the ground went into action to bring the balloon down and wrap it up!
The best part of this experience was how appreciative the team was to the crowd.
The pilot, which I did not get his name, allowed the children to get inside the basket with him so the mom's could get pictures!
Thank you to the team for being so kind and friendly to us. It's an experience the kids snd grown-up's will always remember!
Please note, I have posted some of the pictures on my fb page. Please feel free to take a look!read more
Chester County Launch Site
Launch Site Address
1205 Pottstown Pike, Glenmoore, PA, 19343
Latitude: 40.117113 Longitude -75.694961
Conveniently located on Route 100 between Pottstown and Exton, PA.
We offer hot air balloon rides year-round… see our schedule here.
April-November are our most popular times, but we do flights in winter too (seeing snow-covered Chester County is incredibly beautiful and because of the burner above the basket, the ride is warmer than you might think).
Regardless of time of year, sunrise and sunset are the best times to fly. Private hot air balloon rides are available daily from our Chester County, PA location (weather permitting). Check our availability and book online here.
We recommend that you book online ahead of time as soon as you know you want a ride. While it’s best to book at least 10 days in advance, there may be availability the same day (call 610-469-0782 for day-of availability).
Keep in mind that the most popular time of year is April through mid-November, and the most popular flight time is Saturday at sunset.
From start to finish, the entire hot air balloon experience is roughly 2.5-3 hours (including transportation from the landing spot back to launch site). The balloon ride itself is typically around an hour. Check our availability and book online here.
Yep! Sunrise and sunset are our favorite times to fly! The wind is typically the calmest then, which is why our Chester location has daily flights at those times (weather permitting). Check availability and book online here.
