If you are looking for things to do in Philadelphia, the United States 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 1/2 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!
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.
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!
