Your Hot Air Balloon Experience

After you decide what to do in Lancaster, PA, you’ll need to decide when to do it. Fortunately, hot air balloon rides are easy to schedule in advance and won’t take up the entire day.

Plan on spending 2 1/2 to 3 hours for your hot air balloon ride from start to finish. Flight time is approximately one hour. Your balloon ride begins on the ground, where you can help the crew assemble the balloon and take some time for pictures. Then climb aboard to your balloon to set sail.

During your flight, you’ll be treated to majestic views of Lancaster County farmland, flying over Intercourse, Bird in Hand and Strasburg. On a clear day, you might even see the headwaters of the Chesapeake bay!

As your balloon ride comes to an end, you’ll often meet farmers and see children chasing you barefoot in the fields, waving at the marvelous site. After your flight, you’ll return to your launch point in a comfortable air-conditioned van and be treated to a light snack and champagne toast. You’ll also receive an official flight certificate suitable for framing.
