Hot Air Balloon ride from The Great Balloon Race.
Fly with us from the Shuttleworth Estate surrounded by dozens of hot air balloons.
Our balloon flights depart early morning and late afternoon (weather permitting*). Enjoy the wonder of flight in an open wicker basket, floating effortlessly across the scenic english countryside.
A balloon ride is a truly unforgettable experience. With our balloon ride package at the Great Balloon Race event you get to enjoy our Passenger Terminal, where you will have a choice of refreshments, private toilets and seating to enjoy before meeting your pilot for a safety briefing. You will then be escorted onto the launch field where your balloon will be inflated before your eyes. Climb aboard for ballooning adventure that will last approximately 1 hour**. Once you have your feet back on the ground you will be transported back to the launch site where you will toast your flight with our Terra Firma reception party.
We can also provide balloon flights for couples and groups of 4-6 people in a private balloon allowing for a much more intimate experience.
*All balloon flights are subject to weather conditions and your flight may be postponed for safety reasons.
**Balloon flight duration is approximately 1 hour at the discretion of the pilot.
