Join us at the 2019 Harlan Days Festival for Hot Air Balloon Tether rides. A Hot Air Balloon tether is when the balloon is tied to the ground, lifts off the ground, and hovers 35-50 feet above the ground for several minutes, but does not launch and fly away. Like all Hot Air Balloon flights, this event is weather permitting.
One balloon will be doing tethered rides. The balloon is equipped with an easy access door. No climbing required to enter the balloon. The balloon is not FAA certified to carry wheelchairs.
The balloon can accommodate 4-6 people at one time (depending on combined weight maximum of 850 lb).
$15 per person
Tickets are sold in half hour chunks to cut down on waiting in line for a ride.
No refunds unless the rides are canceled due to poor weather. There will be no refunds if the ride start is delayed but rides still occur. Harlan Days Festival reserves the right to cancel the tether and issue full refunds if not enough tickets are sold for the event.
Every passenger will have to sign a waiver.
Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent / legal guardian and they must sign a release for the child. There is no minimum height requirement, however the balloon basket is 46 inches tall. Adults are NOT permitted to hold a child in their arms during the tethered ride.
